When details of the FZ150’s release were announced in late August 2011, it took many by surprise when Panasonic announced that the replacement for the FZ100 (14Mp) would in fact feature a lower-res 12.1Mp chip than its predecessor. Panasonic boasts that the smaller chip would outdo the older sensor, and first signs seem promising. Like the previous model, the newcomer gives the option to shoot in either JPEG (4000x3000px) or RAW, but can now also capture full 1080HD video at 50fps.
The FZ150 features a 24x optical zoom lens (25-600mm), the same size as its ancestor – albeit with a new Nano Surface Coating to reduce internal reflections. Although this gives it a relatively short focal length, it does make up for this slightly by offering a wide aperture at the longest end of the lens. There’s a choice of two zoom levers to operate the zoom – one on the lens barrel and on the top-plate – each responding quickly.
