>> Josh: Hi, I'm Josh Goldman, Senior Editor for CNET Reviews and this is the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX150 it's a 14.7 megapixel
digital camera that gives you a little more control over exposure than the typical compact offers. The FX150 features a wide-angle
28 millimeter lens with a 3.6 Xzoom, 2.7 inch LCD on back, and reasonably simple controls. There's Panasonic's auto everything mode
called Intelligent Auto and a scene mode with 22 scene options for easy snapshots. While there's also a program AE and manual
exposure modes offering more control over settings. Rounding things out is a movie mode capable of capturing video up to an HD
resolution of 720p. Though it has a manual mode it doesn't have full manual controls there's no manual focus, aperture settings
are limited to 2 steps and exposure composition doesn't function in this mode, however, the inclusion of the controls it does have
such as being able to change shutter speeds in small increments does allow you some creative freedom that lower-end ultra compacts
don't. Also there are plenty of other ways to experiment with the FX150 thanks to an extensive list of shooting options. While
I'm still on the fence on the value of a 14 megapixel resolution in a camera this small the FX150 at least takes decent photos
especially at ISO100. Also the FX150 isn't a very fast performer taking about 2 1/2 seconds from shot to shot but it is faster than
other high resolution ultra compacts we've tested. I'm Josh Goldman and that's the Panasonic Lumix DMC FX150.
