Suddendly a lot of "negative" comments, it seems a coincidence.
Comparing cameras is a personal judgement. People used to Canon, Sony and so on.. will find difficult to "adjust" and " probably tent to be more skeptical to other cams.
Sorry it's just my opinion but too often people "shoot" at something different and only see the negative sides
We are still talking about a pre-production sample and a not published firmware.
When my FZ150 came out and DP Review made the test the first firmware was crap, and the released firmware solved many quality and tech issues.
I hope that the case will be the same with the FZ1000, and when firmware 1.0 or else is released with the "final" camera all things will be even better.
This is a production camera with 0.3 firmware.
I remember that when I saw the production samples of the FZ150 with firmware 0.2 it was miles away from the one we got for sale and with firmware 1.0.
Let's wait that the real deal comes out with a "official released good firmware" and let's see what it can deliver.
I look forward to it to replace my beloved FZ150
bimbobo: ..for all asking of RAW, look at the CHDK options.. and stop crying, please.If I want RAW I would buy a DSLR.
..I cannot judge your photography, but if it's like your style in talking about people, then is below average.If you were proper, you would respect other people's points of view. I see it's not the case. Proper photographrers like you should stay in the DSLR forum.. this is a compact camera, rememeber??Anyway.. I think moderators should ban you, for calling other trash just because you do not agree.
raywes: Nothing has come along in a while to compete with the Sony HX100v, but this changes everything. Along with the Panasonic FZ150, these two cameras will bed the new leaders I predict. And I thought I had my mind made up about purchasing the FZ150 already.
Many people here comment without even checking the specs or without waiting any test, previe, image samples.The SX40HS has Hot Shoe...About RAW, many use imany more do not.About Slow Motion 120fps and GPS and other options, those are just marketing stunts.
I still believe that before saying something, people should see and fell.We have not a single pic or else.RAW and maybe burst speed could still give FZ150 some advantages.

bigdaddave: Cameras like this need RAW to be considered seriously IMO.
I know it's an amateur cam but if you want the best out of the small sensors then we need a RAW mode
..just wait few weeks and CHDK will have a fw with RAW for it..This cam is my next one..
ZAnton: Massive noise reduction (and blur) even at ISO 100 to say nothing about ISO 3200. They could just use 6 MP and then upscale photos.
Sorry, but I would like to ask, which picture taken at ISO100 was the one you looked at.This is not the DSLR forum.. this is a P&S camera with "special" feature and zoom..I think many at DP, compare a P&S to DSLR quality and keeop bashing whatever camera is not a Nikon or Canon to thousands of dollars.If you do not like P&S, please do not comment with such "non objective" remarks.
