The A150 has an in-built memory of 20 MB. The camera accepts SD or MMC memory cards. For an introductory camera, it offers a high light sensitivity factor of ISO 1600. This makes it better in low light situations making it a good all around camera. The focal length of this camera is in the range of 6.3 – 18.9mm. There are 5 preset white balance settings.
The shutter speed ranges between 8 to 1/2000 seconds. In use, the camera has a slight shutter lag so it won’t perform too well when photographing fast-moving babies or sports events. Yet the lag time isn’t enough to frustrate when taking average pictures. Also, the camera has a continuous shooting mode which is admirable in an entry-level camera. In this mode it can take three pictures in a row when you press and hold the shutter. So you can use it for action shot as long as you remember to put it in the continuous mode before you shoot.
The Micro Thumbnail View displays 100 shots simultan
eously (albeit very, very small) for selection and viewing.
As with most cameras of this type, there is no viewfinder. Although the LCD screen is bright and clear, it can be difficult to see in bright sunlight.
For a simple camera, the A150 takes very good photos. The color representation is good and the low light photos are excellent for a camera of this type.
