I purchased the FC150 and so far have been very pleased with the results. When push comes to shove the fc150 is a great point and shootI My only complaint is that from the time I take the picture (which it always captures at the right time) to the time I can take the next picture takes a good 3-4seconds. Probably due to the fact that with most of the settings the camera is performing multiple functions and combining information of many photos that it took all at once to combine them into the great photo you see later. So given the functions that the camera is performing depending on settings the wait time is understandable. When you are using the high speed features for low light fast moving or anything else the quality of the shot does reduce to 9M instead of the camera's full capability of 10M but unless you are making a HUGE blow poster of your creation you will not notice the difference. Overall a great camera especially for the many features and video options that you get. Again don't expect the video to out-due a camcorder and don't expect that just because it has a CMOS sensor that it will outperform an SLR. But I would say that it is one of the closest things I have found in a point and shoot to getting the features of an SLR.
