    Why SX240 is in this league?

    Best is FZ150.

    sx240 is not in this circle but included due to its feature and image quality.

    FZ150 is good in RAW but SX40 HS by CHDK it may achieve.

    What about SX40 HS? How its performance? Or any other model more perfect in this range? May be below this price range.

    Yes, there are some features you will get by using CHDK. FZ150 ratings are overwhelmingly good than SX40. If you prefer to take SX40, its fine. It won't disappoint you.

    Note: Even using CHDK you can't improve the ability of AF.

    Hi dears,
    Finally i narrowed with two choices after a series of analysis along with all your inputs given in this forum..
    NikonP510 and HX200v has enormous features but it greatly lacks in its image quality and performance in relative aspect of SX40 HS and FZ150.

    My little choices are:
    1. SX40 HS
    2. FZ150

    My doubts are :
    FZ150 produce a great image quality in RAW shooting but it lacks in shutter speed(1/2000) and wide(24mm to 600mm).SX40HS have greater shutter speed(1/3200) and better wide.

    which is good by considering overall features of the both?
    and whether the FZ150's lesser shutter speed impact in Bird photography?
    and I need suggestion on Canon SX40 HS output image quality after CHDK in RAW shooting compared to FZ150..
    Is CHDK safe to SX40HS..?
    Any problem occuring. in chdk?

    Friends and Cam-lovers...I invite all your valuable suggestions... Thanking you..

    Wider??? I don't think 1mm gives you a massive difference. But sure give a huge difference at tele. Other than focus speed and RAW shooting, everything is fine with SX40. If you like SX40, go ahead and buy.

    Most of the people around will say FZ150. SX40 and HX100 will follow just closely behind. But with CHDK you can do a lot and for your information it's still in beta stage. It's not stable. For more information about CHDK it's better to ask in CHDK forum.

    Definitely lesser shutter speed of FZ150 won't be a problem for bird photography unless or until the bird is in tooooo bright light. Like flying in the line of sun etc...

    1/2000 or 1/3200 isn't needed for birds. It will make the bird appear like shadow. You will only need it for capturing HDR images. I haven't passed 1/200 while capturing birds

    nac under 20mm each mm is nearly 10 degree of difference but in this case its not much ...

    I have seen guys comparing the slowest shutter speed but never seen on the fastest side...dont worry 1/2000 is fast enough

    Wow!!! So 1mm is a reasonable difference when it's under 20mm. It would be good, compact camera makers introduce nice and wide lens like 18mm, 14mm...

    Is Fuji HS30 available in India? It's a worthy contender here. I haven't read much reviews of this camera as this is not available yet. But there is HS25EXR lacks RAW shooting of HS30 and using AA batteries.

    Yeah, I have read reviews from 12 different sites. Over all, based on expert ratings Fuji's average rating is the best against its competitors. In general, IMO both Canon and Fuji producing excellent colours than other brand fixed lens cameras.

    52mm is mount diameter or filter size. Panasonic have their own accessories like tele converter, filters etc... for FZ150 and there are third party accessories are available as well. While Canon doesn't have their own accessories for SX40 like tele converter, filters but adapter. But there are third party accessories we can use it.

    Google can give plenty of links than us.

    DPREVIEW
    STEVEDIGICAM
    FZ150 OWNERS

    If it's discontinued, the successor will be priced higher. Are you ready to increase your budget? And most likely FZ150's price may fall after launching FZxxx. You can grab it then...

    Generally, manufacturers launch the successor in the same interval. Like,
    SX30 in Sep'10 and SX40 in Sep'11
    HX100 in Feb'11 and HX200 in Feb'12
    FZ100 in Jul'10 and FZ150 in Aug'11

    If it continues, we can expect FZ200 soon.

    What can we expect from FZ200 ? FZ150 itself got everything... What would be in the upgraded version. Just guessing...

    Native video support.
    Better high speed recording.
    It's less likely Panasonic will bring BSI CMOS as they didn't with their latest travel zoom cameras.
    Increase in sensitivity
    Increase in zoom which the rivals faring better
    Faster shutter speed again rivals are better
    GPS
    Better aperture range
    Better resolution screen
    Increase in MP
    Increase in battery life
    Some extra preset modes

    Macro, focus, larger Av size, flash, faster continuous shooting and all FZ150 is better even now. It's less likely FZ200 will have a better numbers in these features.

    everything is pure speculation at this point of time.
    FZ150 is still selling very well. In fact, it is selling more than the competing models of 2012.
    Also, the price of FZ150 is not decreasing considering it is almost 1 year old.

    That was not the case with FZ100 which was severely criticized for poor image quality.

    So, Panasonic might just hold off releasing a new model in a hurry.

    Having said that, I am hoping and praying that there is a price drop of FZ150 in the near future.

    Panasonic has announced FZ200 along with 5 other cameras.

    There's not much info out there and I read very few. Here are the key features...

    f/2.8 throughout focal range 25-600mm (35mm equivalent)
    dolby digital recording
    whooping 1.3million dots EVF

    Sure the price would be too heavy... Probably it will have second highest price tag (bridge camera) next to Fuji X-S1.

    ^ There is no massive upgrade in HX200. You can go with HX100V and save some money.
