Panasonic DMC-FZ150 Reviews

PCMAG reviews the Panasonic DMC-FZ150 and writes;
“If a superzoom with video and fast continuous shooting is what you’re after, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ150 may be the perfect camera for you”
Rating: ★★★½☆

Photographyblog reviews the Panasonic DMC-FZ150 and writes;
“The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ150 dealt very well with chromatic aberrations, with limited purple fringing effects appearing only in high contrast situations. The pop-up flash worked well indoors, with no red-eye and adequate exposure.”
Rating: ★★★★½

Cameralabs reviews the Panasonic DMC-FZ150 and writes;
“With the FZ150 you get a very usable 25-600mm lens range with great stabilisation, snappy autofocus and effective tracking. You get also get very fast continuous shooting and the choice of full manual or fuss-free automatic exposures, along with the ability to shoot in RAW, which really does record greater tonal detail than in-camera JPEGs.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Expertreviews reviews the Panasonic DMC-FZ150 and writes;
“Other aspects of photo quality were consistently excellent, with sharp focus, flattering colours and superbly judged automatic exposures. The Intelligent Auto mode made life very simple”
Rating: ★★★★★

Imaging-resource reviews the Panasonic DMC-FZ150 and writes;
“The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ150’s electronic viewfinder and LCD monitor both showed just over 99% coverage at wide angle, and about 100% coverage at 20x telephoto. Very good results here, especially considering how much distortion correction is applied at wide angle.”
rating: N/A

Dcresource reviews the Panasonic DMC-FZ150 and writes;
“the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ150 is a very good super zoom camera, and one that should be high on your shopping list. If you’re a beginner who wants something simple to take photos and movies with, it can do that with ease. Enthusiasts will be pleased too, thanks to the full manual controls, expandability, and RAW support.”
rating: N/A

Ephotozine reviews the Panasonic DMC-FZ150 and writes;
“ISO test images show low noise at ISO100, noise increases slightly at ISO200, ISO400 sees a slight increase in noise and ISO800 sees noise increase further although results are better than the FZ48. ISO1600 shows reasonable noise levels, with the images appearing usable.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Digitalcamerareview reviews the Panasonic DMC-FZ150 and writes;
“It has good build quality and ergonomics (with the minor exception of its dedicated video button). It’s a feature-rich ultrazoom with excellent performance, especially its shot-to-shot time and continuous shooting ability. Image quality is consistently good, with very little distortion of any kind”
Rating: ★★★★½

CNET reviews the Panasonic DMC-FZ150 and writes;
“The captured images are pin-sharp, smooth, and look great when downloaded and played back in full screen. But the overall results are spoiled by excessive background noise, including wind noise, despite the fact that the wind-cut option was set to ‘auto’ (the only alternative is ‘off’).”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Pocket-lint reviews the Panasonic DMC-FZ150 and writes;
“if you don’t want the perceived ‘hassle’ of a DSLR and swapping lenses and a big zoom is really top of your priority list, then the FZ150 handles well, takes good quality stills and video and offers the flexibility that a pocket compact doesn’t.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Pcpro reviews the Panasonic DMC-FZ150 and writes;
“The price might seem a little high at the outset, but when you consider you’re getting video quality to rival the best single-sensor camcorders, as well as a 600mm zoom lens, it suddenly looks an absolute steal.”
Rating: ★★★★★

T3 reviews the Panasonic DMC-FZ150 and writes;
“The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ150 comes supplied with a chunky DMW-BMB9E rechargeable lithium ion battery, with mains charger and plug provided in the box. This is good for approximately 410 pictures from a single charge.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Trustedreviews reviews the Panasonic DMC-FZ150 and writes;
“At 24x it doesn’t quite match some other superzooms in terms of telephoto reach, however it does deliver good image quality and solid hi-def movie recording abilities.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

PCWorld reviews the Panasonic DMC-FZ150 and writes;
“We had fun with it and think the big 24x zoom works really well. We were also pleased with the camera’s image quality overall (both for stills and video) and love the fact that you can tweak the image colours and tones so easily, or choose from a large array of scene and art modes when the situation calls for it.”
