Summary: This is the second Panasonic camera that I have purchase from Amazon.com. The first camera I brought was DMC-FX100 digital camera and I used it to take out pictures for my job and also for my hobbie and it give me great pictures, so when I saw Amazon advertised the DMC-FX150 I told myself I have to purchase that! and I did not regret, it has a little more features than the DMC-FC100 and the opertion is similar to the DMC-FC100.
Summary: I had no illusions when I bought this camera that it would replace a much larger, heavier, and more expensive DSLR but it fits a special niche. When I need a quick picture of something this is the camera that is always the easiest to grab and shoot and it is small enough to take anywhere. Image quality is very good for this tiny camera and it produces usable pictures at ISO 800 although it is best to keep it at ISO 400 and use flash if need be.
Great little camera! No regrets keeping this over my TZ5.

Summary: I bought this camera to replace my TZ5. The TZ5 is a great camera: awesome lens, easy to use, HD video, 3in high-res screen. The problem I had with the TZ5 is that it wasn't portable enough to `carry on me'. I finally made my rounds with the FX150 and got rid of my TZ5. No regrets! The FX150 fit the bill as a 'carry on me' camera. The extra megapixels are great for printing big photos.
Summary: Many reviews point to the limits of this camera. Yes, a reflex is better in extreme condition, but for the everyday usage, this 14.7 mega pixel, wide angle lens compact camera is superb... at this price and size. Even the movie features are outstanding.
Summary: Before I bought this camera I just bought a Sony t300. It was a crappy camera the pictures was so bad. The Sony T300 camera with the extras cost 400. So much money for so bad pictures.If your looking for a camera with smile ang face features and very nice GUI then buy sony. But dont expect good quality pictures. So Sony never again! So, i was thinking of buying a Canon SD990. But before I buy it I checked the net for some reviews on it.
Summary: Is interesting how many people make a review about , in this case, a little and portable camera making his judgement like if they are handling an SLR. Im a profesional photographer and i like to have a nice and portable camera "just in case", and i found this camera ( i had first the 12 megapixel fx100) almost perfect. wonderfull design and remarcable results. everybody knows about noise in this cameras over 400 iso.
Summary: Although it may not be the perfect camera but it definitely the best camera for the price, the images are pretty noisy if viewed at 100% but since I have bought I have never needed to make a print poster size. Trust me I have looked from Canon to Sony, and for a sub $200 camera you can't get a better deal than this.
