Verdict

There is much to like about the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ150, not least its ease of use, impressive specification – especially in terms of the zoom range – and high level of user control. For a camera of its type, the DMC-FZ150 is a good model. However, as is often the case with a superzoom camera, compromises in image quality are apparent by the noise levels and smudged detail.
