Despite the potential limitations of its short zoom range (3.6x), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX150 offers a host of features aimed to capture the attention of serious photographers. While the camera does offer point-and-shoot scene modes for quick snapshots, it adds options usually found only in the high-end price range or in dSLR models. The DMC-FX150 can capture images as RAW files (versus JPG , the typical file format for compact digital cameras). RAW files hold much more data and allow for higher quality images, but must be processed using software, making RAW photography a more labor-intensive process. The combination of a Leica lens, high resolution sensor and RAW file format will interest serious hobbyists looking for an alternative to a dSLR.

Features:
  • 14.7 megapixel CCD sensor
  • 3.6x zoom Leica lens
  • RAW image format (essentially a "digital negative" that is entirely unprocessed by the camera and requires "developing" with software)
  • Shoots HD video
  • Optical image stabilization
  • Self-timer
  • Battery: Proprietary rechargeable
  • Dimensions: 2.12'' x 3.8'' x .98''
  • Weight: 0.33 lbs
