I actually like the panorama setting.

I wasn't aware that the FZ150 Had a panorama assist! Looks like there is no reason to wait then!


Thanks for all the input!

Well, just did some rechecking and the FZ150 does not have the panorama mode.
I think I will go ahead and wait awhile to see if Panasonic is going to add it to the next upgrade, without losing the quality of the FZ150. It would be fun to have panorama, but not at the cost of losing photo quality!

So just for my knowledge, what is the difference between the Panorama Assist it does have and the Panorama mode you want? I have no idea what either of them do is why I ask.

I believe the panorama "assist" and "mode" are the same thing. I also think the FZ150 does have the panorama feature. From the FZ150 specs.

"Scene ModesCreative Control, Portrait, Scenery, Sports, Night Portrait, Close- up, Scene (Panorama Assist, Party, Candle Light, Baby1, Baby2, Pet, Sunset, High Sensitivity, Flash Burst, Panning, Starry Sky, Fireworks, Beach, Snow, Aerial Photo, Photo Frame, High-Speed Video, 3D Photo), Custom, Creative Video

Well, do I feel embarrassed!
You are right! the FZ150 DOES indeed have Panorama assist ( which I meant to say instead of "mode" )
That should teach me not to "ASSume" after reading reviews and NOT reading the manual beforehand!
So, it looks like a new camera is going to be in my hands soon!

Thanks for all your help, and sorry for the confusion!

csa...

catalex, thanks for the link! That's a good price, and Amazon has a great return policy from what I understand.

Right now I am waiting until the end of this week to make my purchase. I am considering ordering from Unique Photo. They have the FZ150 for $399!! ( no tax and free shipping )

I am just a little apprehensive about ordering from them since I really don't know much about the company.

I'm considering the FZ150 but I'd like to be able to have a wireless remote shutter release as an accessory. Does anyone know if the FZ150 offers this?
