Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ150 DSLR Camera Black - Expert Reviews

Overall Review

Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ150 is a 12.1 megapixel super-zoom camera which has a 24x stabilised range with 1080p video capturing abilities alongside a Full HD 1080p video capturing ability and a 3 inch screen which is fully articulated. Since its launch and the replacement of Panasonic Lumix FZ100, and like it’s precursor it too has been placed right at the top of the same lens range camera, or as an upgrade to a simpler version which in this case is Panasonic Lumix FZ48. This is a smart strategy from Panasonic as some people are just “zoom” crazy for which Panasonic FZ48 does the trick, while for the more professional approach Panasonic Lumix FZ150 cuts in as an overall winner.  As mentioned, Olympus FZ150 comes with the same 24x optical zoom which could earlier easily be seen delivering an equivalent range of 25-600 mm and hence it still falls a little short of the humungous 35x and 36x ranges boasted by the Canon PowerShot SX40 HS and Olympus SP810UZ respectively but Panasonic covers it up by simply being extremely versatile. Panasonic Lumix FZ 150 comes equipped fully with nano-coatings which reduce the reflectivity and a new Activation Stabilisation mode which was seen earlier on Panasonic Lumix ZS10 which reduces wobbling effect while the user is filming while walking, and even fitted a new side-lever to allow easier zooming while filming. 

 

 

 

Design and Build Quality

In the first glance, it is instantly eminent that Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ150 really has a lot of the external design with its predecessor Panasonic Lumix FZ100. The device looks to all intents like a proper DSLR camera, only that this has a fixed lens and an optical viewfinder. The exact dimensions of the camera measure 124.3mm x 81.2mm x 95.2mm, this tells that Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ50 is not really a pocketable device, rather it is one which is more about being at home or tied round your neck or by your shoulder, although with an all-plastic body it really feels like it can withstand a blow or too. Talk about handling, the camera feels really solid and rugged in your hand, and at the same time a bit low on the weight department comparatively weighing at just under 500 grams, this may seem as an exception to the device being “solid and rugged” but then heavier is not always the stronger. You will also be pleased to see an electronic viewfinder which is a good .2 inches big in size offering 100% field of view and 201k dots. There's also a important eye relief that juts out clear of the LCD so that you don't mechanically smear your nose all over the monitor when you put your eye close to it. A dioptre change wheel is immediately nearby, enabling the short sighted to use it without clashing spectacles.

 

 

Focus and Face Detection

The AutoFocus of Panasonic Lumic DMC FZ150 is very efficient and determines a number of key criteria when the picture is being shot which includes the shot with most appropriate scene mode and ISO speed, image stabilisation and quick AF on. As such, the device features a 15 point AF system. The Intelligent Auto Mode in the device comes with Intelligent Exposure which helps increase the exposure only in the under-exposed areas of the image, Digital Red-eye, which automatically detects and removes red-eye, and AF Tracking, which can automatically and in continuation track a moving subject and keep it in the focus range without the need to hold the shutter button hallways down like in the case of most of the cameras.

 

Lens and Image Stabilization

The entire build of Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ150 is totally dominated by a non-interchangeable 24x zoom lens that can provide a highly versatile focal range measuring 25-600mm. While this may be not as big as the lens housted by most of its real competitors, but out of the paper and in the real world it does really make much of a difference. To help avoiding of lens flare, a lens hood is supplied along with the camera which is detachable, and also there is a clip on lens cap which can easily be attached by a thread to one of the catches available for a strap on the shoulder. On the side of the lens barrel of this device is a switch which reads marked AF/AF Macro/MF. Now, when the MF ( Manual Focus ) is selected the focus range can be manually set from 1 foot to a maximum infinity, with the central portion of the frame enlarged so that the sharpness of the image can be determined even more carefully.  

 

Screen and Menus

Almost the entire rear of Panasonic DMC FZ150 is covered by a big 3inch LCD screen which has a default aspect ratio of 3:2 and the pixel count of 460 dots, although the pixel count in this screen is better than the entry level 230k dots but still you would expect better coming from a device this hyped. Panasonic DMC FZ150 has a high contrast and really low reflectivity. While the screen on its precursor became almost instantaneously washed out when coming to the direct contact of sun light, the screen of Panasonic DMC FZ150 succeeds quite comfortably and obviously has an additional edge by being able to twist to an angle which can avoid glare.

 

Battery

Panasonic DMC FZ150 is powered up by a rechargeable Li-Ion battery which manages to get a good 400 shots. Thankfully the heavy anti-shake system does not affect the battery life of this device.

 

Video Mode

Panasonic DMC FZ150 can record full HD 1920 x 1280 60p (NTSC) / 50p (PAL) movies at 30/25 frames per second at 17Mbps or 13Mbps in the AVCHD (MPEG-4/H.264) format, and also 1280 x 720 at 30fps. In addition it can also record Motion JPEG movies at 320 x 240 at 30fps, 640 x 480 at 30fps, 848 x 480 at 30fps and 1280 x 720 at 30fps, useful as this format can currently be shared more easily. Taking advantage of the MOS image sensor is the High Speed Movie scene mode, which as the name suggests records high speed movies at 220fps in QVGA size.

 

Sensors

Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ150 works on a 12.1 megapixel MOS sensor which measures 1/2.3 inches.

 

 

Pros

Great quality 24x lens. Can zoom while filming.

Good quality images and RAW capabilities.

1080/50p/60p video with PASM and mic input.

Fully articulated screen and flash hotshoe.

Fast continuous shooting options and snappy AF.

Mic input doubles as remote / intervalometer socket.

 

Cons

Buffer at 12fps only lasts for one second of action.

Lens range actually the shortest of peer group.

No built-in GPS and can't assemble its own panoramas. 

Mic input is 2.5mm so requires adapter for third party mics.
