Does what we need it to do
28 October 2011
Summary: This is our second mid-range model Lumix, and I like it even better than our first one. It's small enough that we really use it; it fits into pretty much any pocket and doesn't weigh much. The biggest bonuses are the image stabilization feature and the non-delay between hitting the shutter button and actually taking a picture. We get many more usable pictures because of those two things, and with fewer shots overall.
Summary: I'm totally impressed with this camera. I'm just a point and shoot guy; don't need anything fancy. But my simple needs include no/very small delay between pushing the button and taking a picture, very little pause between taking pictures, a very good zoom, simple controls and fits in my pocket. This camera delivers them all. Particularly impressed that I take very few fuzzy pictures anymore due to the quick shutter.
Summary: I've waiting a couple of months before giving my review, and I am still getting acquainted with the camera. I have not used it for videos, nor have I tried every mode setting. However, I have used it extensively for still photographs, including close-ups, and am very pleased with the ease of use and quality of the photographs. I did have to get a new (inexpensive) card reader, as the built in slot of my older computer would not read the SDHC card.
Summary: *** ALERT: This is NOT a technical review. *** I spent almost a year reading about different point-and-shoot digital cameras. Talked to a few professional photographer friends for their suggestions and input. Had a few cameras on one of my Amazon wishlists for a while before removing them after a couple of months because I didn't feel the same way about them after the time lapse. Tinkered with a few point-and-shoots at every electronics store I found myself in.
Excerpt: I bought this camera after reading reviews online and going to the store and "playing" with a lot of cameras. My biggest pet-peeve in a digital camera is the time it takes between pictures. Let me tell you....I love my camera! There is hardly a delay between pictures. I bought the camera right before I went on a vacation, and this thing was great! It has so many features on it, and the zoom capabilities were incredible.
Excerpt: I love the convenience and ease of having a camera in my phone to be able to take pictures at any time, but the quality wasn't great. I was hesitant to add another gadget, and knew that I wouldn't remember to take a camera the way I take my phone. But the quality of the pictures is so good that I don't mind.
The Panasonic Lumix results in picture-perfect photos

Excerpt: I'm a mom and a scrapbooker so I take a lot of pictures. I prefer a simple point-and-shoot camera and avoid ones that take longer to set up than to take the picture. I don't need anything fancy but I do want a camera that takes quality images without requiring too much effort on my part. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH25 16.1 MP Digital Camera is perfect for someone like me.
Excerpt: I had a hard time adjusting to this camera. It was very hard to switch from the menu to actually taking the picture. I tried to take pictures during Christmas and it was a fiasco! I kept having my daughters wait while I "set-up" the program to just take the picture. Very frustrating!
Summary: This camera has really impressed me! In the past I had a really old sony cyber shot that work ok but never did a great job has I've always wished. I've seen how Canon Power Shot work, delivering pictures that have great colors and focus very well, with no blur at all. However the price of the Power Shot, when I was comparing cameras, were way higher than this Panasonic lumix. They offered less MP (14 MP and 12 MP vs 16 MP) and just half of the zoom (4x vs 8x).
Summary: This is the best canera that I have ever had for always taking with you. It fits nicely in your pocket. It takes excellent pictures, even when in direct sun light. The extra 10X also takes great looking pictures, not like the old digital zoom. The many settings make it all-in-one camera. So far the included software is easy to use and allows you to edit the "bad" shots so that they look good.
