If megapixels are what persuade you to part with your cash for a camera, then Panasonic’s latest Lumix compact will be right up your alley.

Panasonic's Lumix DMC-FX150: 14.7 million pixels

The DMC-FX150 sports a massive 14.7-megapixel sensor which, provided you can get the camera’s other image capabilities set correctly, should mean you’ll always be rewarded with crisp and clear still shots.

Photographers also benefit from a 28mm wide-angle lens and a 3.6x optical zoom to help ensure a crowd of friends sat off in the distance can all be snapped within a single image.

A 3Mp settings gives you 7.7x optical zoom

However, if you’re willing to settle for a three-megapixel image, then the shooter’s optical zoom capability can be boosted to 7.7x for additional magnification.

Decent size LCD but no optical viewfinder

A decent size 2.7in LCD display is built into the rear of the camera and your images will be saved in RAW format onto SD memory cards.

All the usual image settings are also included, ranging from red-eye reduction and optical image stabilisation to face detection.

Panasonic’s DMC-FX150 is set to cost $400 (£200/€235) in the US. A UK release date or price hasn’t been given yet.
