Pros The Panasonic FX150 pocket camera takes wonderfully clear and crisp photos as good as any of my cameras and I own 6 of them. Easy to use for a beginner, advanced capabilities for the professional. The best buy in a pocket cameras under $300 today.
Cons Settings are limited in the manual mode (were lucky to have any manual settings at all) and there is no way to add filters to the lens.
Summary This camera offers many features not found in other pocket cameras of it's size and price. For the beginner all the typical point-and-shoot automatic modes are available. As this beginner advances in capability the camera offers many additional simple controls that he/she can experiment with to improve their photos.
For the advanced photographer the camera offers choices like manual settings along with an ability to record photos in RAW. Additionally Panasonic includes SILKYPIX a software program that works very well in editing RAW photos. It has been my experience that these features are very important for an advanced/professional photographer yet are rarely available in pocket cameras.
Couple the above features with a LEICA lens and image stabilization and 14megapixels and you have one heck of a camera for the size and cost. This is truly a professionals pocket camera.
