TCav... are you sure the "150" doesn't have a diaphragm...?
See these 2 pics- one at f/3.4, the other at f/8....
Focus area fixed on badge on torch....
My mistake. Thanks for calling me on this.
While many P&S cameras use a simple neutral density filter to alter the exposure, the FZ150 has an actual diaphragm.
