Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX150 review

 

Instead of being the camera you take with you while your digital SLR stays home , the 14-megapixel Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX150 is the one you go for when you simply want a little more control over exposure than the typical compact offers. It doesn't have...

Great mix of manual, auto features; raw, raw+JPEG capture; 28mm wide-angle lens; easy to operate; 720p HD movie capture; unassuming good looks.

No optical zoom in Movie mode; noise reduction noticeable at ISO 200; limited manual functions.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX150 is an excellent blend of usability, features, and photo quality.

Hoch auflösende Panasonic Lumix FX150 Digitalkamera Wie groß nun der Vorteil einer hohen Auflösung bei einer Kompaktkamera wie der Panasonic LUMIX FX150? De facto nicht groß und sogar für 99 % der Aufnahmen, die man mit einer solchen Kamera machen...

Panasonic Lumix DMC FX150 review

 

The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FX150 does not mind a few extra Megapixels. No less than 14.7 Megapixels have been crammed onto the 1/1.72 inch image sensor. We don't even find a resolution this high standard on most digital SLR cameras, exceptional! However,...

Now what is the surplus value of the high resolution on a compact camera such as the Panasonic LUMIX FX150? Not a lot, in fact, even unnecessary for 99% of the pictures that you will make with this type of camera, and the high resolution will certainly...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX150 Review

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX150 is a new digital compact camera with features that will appeal to both beginners and more experienced photographers alike. Panasonic's IA (Intelligent Auto) mode turns the FX150 into a reliable point-and-shoot that anyone...

A well built (with the exception of the plastic buttons at the rear), competitively priced high-resolution model, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX150 pulls off the trick of being at once a snapshot camera suitable for all the family to use, and one that also...

Panasonic Lumix FX150 Digital Camera

 

The Panasonic Lumix FX150 has really impressed me in the few weeks that I have been using it. I wasn't exactly sure what to expect, as it has been a few years since I last owned a point-n-shoot camera and the few that I have used since then haven't...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX150 Review

 

Like cars, boats, and audio/video components, cameras get much more interesting as you move toward the upper end of the product range. Point-and-shoot digital camera buyers usually want the longest zooms, the hottest features, the most megapixels, and...

Elegant, stylish, compact, feature rich, Excellent Leica zoom, Very good to excellent image quality, Manual exposure controls

No optical viewfinder, Noisy images, Weird compass switch
