Can't say for sure because I wasn't there to see the subjects, but the 150 seems to show very realistic colors and very sharp. Darn it, I want one now...

Thanks for posting, very informative.

Hi Saly

Yes I do believe the FZ-150 is a bit sharper. I probably should do the test shots at 4:3 ratio and use the higher megapixels. But I normally shoot at 3:2 I also should setup the FZ 150 using the NR-2 settings as the FZ-100 and compare.

As far as wanting one isn't that the way it always goes. I must be nuts I have bought 4 Camera's in the Last Year and a half. The one I usually have with me is the LX-5. I like the smallness, but miss the zoom. I usually do not do small camera's well. We had a train derail here I ran out with my Camera Phone on bright sunny day and took a dozen shots. Went inside to show them to my friends, they saw 11 shots of my finger.

I can't wait until LTZ-470 gets home as he always had good shots with fz-100 and I know he bought this and the 47 as well. I'm sure he will show how to make this camera really shine.

LTZ has been busy with his Oly EP3, so may be a while before we see any posts with the FZ...

Thanks for the great comparison shots! I'm seriously considering the FZ150 (still keeping my FZ40). I'm also considering the G series, but really love the ease of the FZ's.

Really very informative post. I'm also reading reviews of Fz150 from various sites too. But want to know how it is compared to Canon SX40 HS ?

Again, If Fz150 can shoot FHD, 1080p movie, high speed movie, etc .... then is there a need to buy a separate handy cam for video shooting ? Really confused

Hi Popellis

Could you share how to shoot the moon like above ?
I did try with my FZ 40 but it was always over exposure ? What kinds of settings did you use ?

When taking lunar photos ALWAYS use the spot focus and spot metering modes.

Satrio as Streets said I use spot metering and usually a tripod. In your menu or quick menu it the Square with the dot in the middle.

I really do not know anything about the Cannon SX 40 HS, So I really could not give advice on the Two comparisons.
As far as the movies I don't take that many and as far as I'm concerned the FZ-100 and FZ-150 have done an excellent job on video for me, so I would not buy a video camera. But again I do not do that much video.

I hope this helps

Yes, it was my 1000mm with a 20mm eyepiece and digiscoped with a Sony H70 16MP point and shoot. The manual focus of the lens provides most of the fun.
