Summary: My mother bought this camera for me as a gift. It was a lightening deal the day she bought it. At the time I did not understand because I have several Point and Shoot cameras around the house with almost the same specs. However, she said she owned the camera and it was fantastic. I have had the camera now for over two months and I use it ALL the time! It takes wonderful pictures! It is a little bulkier than my other cameras but that does not matter.
Summary: Bought this camera because I was heading for vacation and I had a friend who had one she loved for the last 4 years, and it was a great price with all the specifications I needed. My last camera was a more expensive Canon that became useless in about 6 months. My sister and parents bought the same Canon($200) and both were also unhappy with it. I just took a week vacation to New York City and my pics are so fabulous!!!
Summary: I bought this camera as a replacement for another Lumix point and shoot I had for the past 5-6 years. I've always liked the build quality and great pics that the Lumix family of cameras provide. What sold me were all the stellar reviews on Amazon, the Leica lens, and the rock bottom pricing ($139 a few weeks ago). The camera feels light in your hand- almost too light. Not sure if the body is made of metal or plastic, but it's small enough to pocket if you had to.
Summary: I would have given this camera 4 stars except for the fact that it stopped working after a few weeks of very light use. Upon pressing the power button, the camera lens would come out and attempt to open. It would fail to do so and then have to be shut off. I sent the camera to the Panasonic Service Center for warranty service in south Texas. They promptly mailed me back an identical re-manufactured version.
Summary: I am returning this camera right now! tried taking pics on mothers day and my 13 year old told me that this camera add years to our faces. I was shocked to hear my 13 YO telling me this. I have printed my return labels and now I am waiting on UPS to come pick this junk up.
Summary: Takes great night pictures, flexible options for different types of scenes and 1 in 10 are the odds for blurry pics. Sure the recording function does not zoom while taping, but its a camera....enough said. Will not disappoint.
Summary: Picked this up for our trip to Europe after doing lots of online research. The battery lasts for what seems AGES, and this handy, little compact camera was easy to use and took great pics. Definitely would recommend.
Summary: After reading numerous reviews I decided to purchase this Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH25A for my son. Wow the pictures that he takes with this are excellent quality. We are generally a Nikon family so buying this Lumix was a stretch for me, but I'm glad I made the purchase. This is the best camera for the price. It performs better than my wife's Nikon S570 - which is a decent camera as well.
