I have an FZ35, and when shooting video, if I pan over a very bright light source (the sun for example) I experience a brown band that runs from the top to the bottom of the shot, emanating from the light source. This has, for me, made the camera unsuitable for trying to film events such as sunsets and air shows, as the sun always bands and blocks the shot.
I read that this is a common effect on digital cameras that also shoot video.
With the upgraded sensor, does this issue effect the new FZ150?
Any advice is much appreciated as I am keen to upgrade, but want to know if I also need to purchase a stand primary video camera for such shots.

Sounds to me like "vertical smear" which is actually a common effect on cameras with CCD sensors, whether or not they also happen to shoot video. If this is case, then no, the CMOS sensor in the FZ150 should not be similarly affected.

But note that CMOS sensors have issues of their own, the most prevalent of which is "rolling shutter" (aka jello, skew, wobble). i.e. panning with an airplane as it flies by a control tower may make the tower look pisa-ish.
