Default FZ 150 Theater

A main reason I got the FZ 150 was to shoot community theater silently without the DSLR mirror slap. Shot a production of Wizard of Oz and I am quite pleased. These would medium size print really well. 800-1000 ISO to get 1/100 shutter speed. Even the last shot at ISO 1600 in terrible blue light came out pretty good. Shot in RAW. The 5 fps with focus really works.

I upgraded from the FZ 38. It was not on the order of a point and shoot to a DSLR, but the FZ150 is definitely better including 5 fps focusing, faster focusing overall, at least a stop better ISO and for me a huge advantage is the swivel LCD. No one even knew I was shooting. I sat in the front row with the camera on my lap and silently shot away.

For me, the better ISO and the swivel screen were must upgrades. I am going to try the 12 shoot burst mode on some sports. I'll post.
