Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ150


The Panasonic DMC-FZ150 CMOS-powered 24X superzoom is a replacement for the slightly unloved FZ100 and incorporates a lower-resolution 12MP sensor that the company says will outperform its predecessor's 14MP chip. The camera retains a 25-600mm...

Really useful 25-600mm (equivalent) lens range ; Very good JPEG image quality, with provision for shooting in Raw mode ; Lens impressively sharp with generally good sharpness at all focal lengths ; Effective image stabilization ; Good high ISO...

Slight tendency to highlight clipping in some situations ; EVF a little 'pokey' and prone to RGB tearing ; Noise-reduction takes the edge off fine detail above ISO 400 (but can be tweaked) ; High-quality video files are massive

THE FZ150 is a solid and capable superzoom camera that boasts impressive image quality considering it's 24X optical zoom range. Sharpness is high, aberrations are well-controlled, and its capable optical image stabilization system makes working at its...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ150


The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ150 offers a long 24x zoom range, 1080p video recording, and fast continuous shooting. It's priced a little high when you compare it with competitors, but it's still a very capable camera.

Long 24x zoom range. Swiveling LCD. Fast continuous shooting. 1080p video capture. Hot shoe.

Pricey. Bulky. Images could be sharper. So-so low-light performance.

Performance and Conclusions Although the FZ150 isn't the fastest camera to start up and take a shot—its large lens has to extend a bit, which slows this process—it is able to rattle off shots with ease once it gets going. The camera takes a full two...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ150 (Black) review


There was one thing that kept the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100 from earning a CNET Editors' Choice Award: photo quality. So when Panasonic announced that its successor, the FZ150, had a new imaging sensor and processor, I had high hopes for it.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ150 's lens, shooting options, and fast performance offer great shooting flexibility.

The FZ150's JPEG photos can look overprocessed when viewed at large sizes.

Hobbyists and enthusiasts who want a megazoom camera with a lot of control over final results should strongly consider the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ150.

Speedier than its 5MP cousin, the DMC-F20. Leica 12X zoom lens with constant f/2.8 aperture and image stabilization. Very comfortable, SLR-like feel. Power feature set, lots of control over exposure.

Large and heavy for a superzoom. Poor video mode.

While the 4MP Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ15 can't quite match the 5MP DMC-FZ20 when it comes to image quality, it still takes good pictures, and its f/2.8 long zoom lens and short recycle times make this the best all-around superzoom when it comes to shooting

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ15 Digital Camera Review: Intro and Highlights


Panasonic's been a player in the digicam market for the last couple of years, but until now, we've not managed to get hands on any of their cameras to test. As it happens, the Panasonic FZ15 was a great unit to start with, as I found it to offer...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ150


Panasonic rethinks their high-end ultrazoom, returning the flagship to five-star status with a reduction in resolution that paradoxically boosts image quality. Easy to recommend.

Excellent 24x zoom that starts at 25mm; Solid build; Articulating LCD; Improved sensor and image processing; 12 fps continuous mode; Full HD video at 60p

Tends to blow out highlights; Tripod socket close to battery door; Incandescent white balance is a little warm

A family portrait showing the FZ47 and FZ150. Note the extra zoom lever on the side of the FZ150 at right

Very good photo quality ; Monster 24X, 25 - 600 mm Leica lens ; Power OIS image stabilization, with "active" mode for movies ; 3-inch rotating LCD with 460,000 pixels, good outdoor/low light visibility ; Full manual controls with RAW support, numerous...

Tends to clip highlights ; Images have yellow/brownish cast in artificial light; still no fluorescent white balance option ; Some redeye; no removal tool in playback mode ; Long write times after a burst containing RAW photos is taken ; Rainbow effect...

In conclusion, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ150 is a very good super zoom camera, and one that should be high on your shopping list. If you're a beginner who wants something simple to take photos and movies with, it can do that with ease. Enthusiasts will...
