As a knowledgeable camera user who comes from a film background and has owned 15 different digital cameras, all of different brands, I get tired of extreme bad ratings to quality cameras. This camera is excellent in every way with a little noise when viewed at 100% on screen. At 14.7mp's, that is huge and noise doesn't show at low iso at 50% viewing or lower which is still huge. It's the features and over all image quality that matter, not just noise. A lot of cameras that have less noise, ...

I've been using Panasonic's camera for years, I've owned a DMC FX 8 and still own a Z5. Few days ago I've bought a DMC FX 180 wich is almost the same as the FX 150. So in the last few days I've tested the camera outdoor and indoor. I must say that so far the results are very good for such a small camera. With my previous experience with DMC FX 8 and Z5 I can already use most of the functions, panasonic menus are very easy to use and with the quick menu it's even faster to set the camera's ...

I purchased this camera three weeks ago as an intended replacement for my aging Canon SD550 (Ixus 750). I assumed that technology had moved on somewhat in the 3 years since I last purchased a camera and that outputs would have likewise improved. Furthermore, I was on the hunt for something with a wider angle capability. When trying the camera out in the store, I found the images appeared crisp and vivid on the LCD. The build quality appeared sturdy, it was visually appealing and with very few ...

If this camera lived up to its feature list it would be a run-away winner, but it does not. Problems: The bottom line is that, even in bright light, there is what I can only describe as a gauze, like a heat haze on a warm (UK!) summer's day, which - being Panasonic - is the result of noise. OK, you can make a lot improvement in Elements, but why should you have to? Why on earth Panasonic had to squeeze 15m pixels in so small a camera I cannot imagine; with 7m or 8m this camera might have had ...

Hate to be a contrarian here, but... I bought the camera for two reasons: RAW output and ultracompact size. (No camera is any good if it isn't with you.) RAW because I shoot for "fine art" (read resale) prints up to 16x20 or so. I spend a lot of time in Photoshop. With my DSLR, raw files are all I ever shoot. So, I wanted something that would be mindlessly simple to carry, but would capture the serendipitous with enough quality to sell. Does this camera do it? Yeah... with caveats. The one ...

I bought this camera for my Girlfriend actually, as we have a new baby and she wanted something for this reason, and also to document her work as a make-up artist. Her main priority was size (as she understands not the technical jumbo related to cameras), but as I am a photographer, I was looking for something which I could use occasionally. I realise that megapixels are not everything, so 14mega pixels was not the deciding factor, but it was certainly interesting. The fx150 takes big ...

I looked at the Ricoh R8, Panny TZ5, and Panny FX500 before getting the FX150. It has a great feature set, the 3.6X zoom is just right, very soild construction, and is easy to use. The three features that sold me were the IA, AF tracking, & flash burst modes. I am pleasantly suprised by the image quality, it's very good. I was able to use the camera right out of the box and only looked at the manual to see what certain function symbols stood for. This is a very nice little camera, oh by ...

Small, Compact and Swift...Solid build and rather light weight. Menus are great and easy to play around.. Esp the IA mode. Damn sweet and very useful. The E.Zoom is also very good to use. Shoots out to the max zoom in less than 2 secs. It can also zoom up to 7.7x max. Though it is only 3MP at that zoom, it is still better than using digital zoom. But if you really need the distance, plus digital zoom, it can shoot up to 30x. I think nop camera at this size is capable of doing this. Love the ...
