FZ150 going back...bummer.
Nov 1, 2011

I really wanted to like the FZ150 because I wanted to avoid buying a DSLR again…and of course the price was right. But after hundreds of photos I can’t get past the fact that the photos just don’t have that “wow/pop” factor I was used to with my old Canon DSLR…amazingly enough even my wife agreed.

The photos that came out nice were fantastic, but there were way too many non-keepers using the iA mode…the preferred mode for the wife. This goes for the shots taken outdoors in the bright sunlight or in the evening. I tried the other modes including manual and I just never was satisfied, especially with the focusing speed indoors at night with normal lighting or outdoors at night. Perhaps if I never owned a DSLR I would be happier.

I don’t look forward to the extra weight, but I think I may just have to go the DSLR route again…maybe a Sony A35/55 w/ 18-250mm lens?

Happy shooting!
