FZ150 startup time (play mode & record mode)
Hi Gerry, you are right, I'd forgotten having asked that same question before. However, I have to say I'm still not quite convinced: some people say that it takes their FZ150 1 or 2 seconds from off to first pic appearing on the screen in Play Mode, or from off to starting video recording. I just can't replicate that at all, even if I start with the lens cap off before starting the camera. Other people say that 6-7 seconds sounds about right to them - to me it doesn't, when I compare it to my other new camera, Canon SX40, or even to my old camera, Canon A610, although that latter comparison is admittedly not quite fair given that these are different generation cameras.
