Summary: I got this camera as a backup to my Panasonic DMC-FZ35 to keep in my car. I found that I use it more than my larger camera because it's always near, and it's small enough to carry around with out lugging something big. It takes decent pictures and the zoom is better than most of this type. Being small, it is missing some of the tricks and functions of its larger siblings.
Summary: Got this camera to use when I am not really in the "photographer" mood - something light and easy to carry. Have been pleased enough to use more often than I had expected - it is very compact and the pictures and movies are actually just perfect. Even the charger is compact as the prongs fold in and there is no cord (plugs straight into the wall).
Summary: Been using it now for about three weeks and am disappointed with the picture quality. With the settings set at full 16MP and full auto, the pics come out kind of hazy, not sharp at all and the colors seem washed out. I was upgrading from a Kodak 5MP Easyshare camera that was on it's way out and I have to say that the old Kodak took much better quality pics, sharper and more vivid colors than the new Panasonic.
Summary: This camera works well if you're just really looking for a point and shoot camera. Like other reviewers say, the video is not zoom enabled. The image gets noisier the higher the optical zoom you go. If you are good at tuning the brightness of the camera, then you should be able to take really good pictures with it. The best thing about this camera is that it has the "Intelligent" feature where it would detect difference scenes (i.e. night scene, pet scene...
Summary: This camera is fantastic! I bought it because a friend asked me what I thought would be a good first digital camera for a beginner around $150.00. When he RAVED about his I decided to get one for myself. I have been using a Lumix DMC-FZ15 since 2004 and have had great success taking thousands of pictures. I thought the new DMC-FH25K would come in handy as a pocket size option. WOW! not only does it take incredible pictures, the VIDEO is superb!
Summary: I am returning my Panasonic Lumix FH25 camera. I know it's at the lower end of the P&S spectrum and brand new, but Panasonic in collaboration with Leica produces a generally above average camera at any price. I own serious cameras and take pictures every day. I ordered this one because the price was reasonable and it seemed to be a nice little snapshot camera for occasions, especially an upcoming visit with family. Panasonic's press release and specs sounded perfect.
Summary: The first was a 7.1MP 3x zoom Canon Powershot SD1000. It took great photos (day and night) but it was slowww and the video was standard not HD. I traded up (or so I thought) and got a 12MP 5x zoom Sony Cyber-shot W290. It was sleek and stylish. The photos were okay (good day photos lousy night photos). I couldn't believe it. A 7.1MP camera was better than a 12MP camera made from Sony! The HD video (720p) was awesome. I sold it and gave my Powershot away as a gift.
Summary: Just got this product today and have been trying it out. So far I am really impressed. The colors are great, the video clarity and color is great and it seems to be built solidly. I am thinking I may need a bigger card than 8G for movies for a trip though, the videos take up a lot of space. After I have more time with this camera I will write an update, but so far it seems great. I am anxious to try all the options. Thanks Amazon and Panasonic!
Summary: Initially, I was very excited to try out the new Lumix DMC-FH25R. It came on Friday and I immediately charged the battery so I could put the camera through its paces this weekend. Well, it's Monday and I'm sending it back. In spite of Leica glass on this camera, the image quality, I'm afraid, isn't there. Pictures taken in low light yield false colors. For instance, a shot of a red dinner plate came out a strange burnt orange and very oddly distorted.
