Having now shot a documentary on this camera and about to embark on another, I would like to share with other users of this camera some thoughts.
I do realise that most professionals will prefer to shoot on the FS5 and FS7 but is there anyone using the Z150?
The main issue I have is the 'ramping' of aperture throughout the zoom, resulting in a max of F4 when on full tele. Nothing obviously can be done about this but does it cause problems for others in regard to obtaining a shallow DoF? I do find the low light performance superior to that on the EX1 but would like to know if others rack up the gain in low light and to what levels. I find that plus 12db is OK, going higher can produce some noise. Finally, is this the right forum for the Z150 or is there a more suitable one in The Cow?
