Re: FZ150 and night photography

"Doctor, it hurts when I go like this."

"Don't go like that."

As a prospective FZ150 buyer, I'm interested in what others may say. But, you'll surely have better results by taking control, yourself, and using A or M mode. A little experimenting, and you'll nail it.

Panasonic may have changed the metering system, which makes Ai and P not behave as you expect, with point sources of light on a dark background.

Also, there must be a Night Scene type mode buried in there somewhere, which you have not yet tried. The Ai is supposed to select the "right" scene mode, but probably is missing, and not picking Night Scene.
