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.
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!
