Light Speed AF
The auto focus gains approx. 50% faster speed compared with the DMC-FZ100 achieving Light Speed AF of approx. 0.1 second. You can quickly focus on moving subjects, such as when you're shooting sports scenes or animals.

*3 The exposure and white balance are fixed with the first picture for the burst.

Once you focus on your subject, the AF Tracking automatically tracks it until you press the shutter. When you're taking images of an active subject, like children or pets, this function eliminates the need to press the shutter button halfway down repeatedly to readjust the focus. With the DMC-FZ150, the speed becomes faster thanks to the improved tracking performance which doubles its sampling frequency.
1-area AF (Flexible / Scalable)
With the 1-area AF, the position of the AF area can be freely moved. The AF frame size can also be selected from among Spot, Normal, L, and XL.
In the manual focus mode, not only the focus distance but also the DOF (depth of field) according to the zoom range and aperture is displayed.
In addition, an MF Assist function enlarges the image to make focusing easier. The focusing area is movable, which also contributes to easy and comfortable manual focusing.
The DMC-FZ150 lets you get as close as 1cm to your subject. Ideal for taking dynamic, intricate close-ups of flowers and insects, this feature is also great for rendering artwork and handicrafts in spectacular details and rich expression.
