Summary: This camera is very easy to use. It takes great pictures and is small enough to keep in your pocket. It is my understanding that it has a zeiss lens. Everything works well and is convenient. I like the switch instead of a button to turn the camera on.
Summary: I bought this camera in large part because of the Leica lens. I've used it on a dozen occassions and the picture quality is superb - razor sharp clarity and snappy contrast. I was a photojournalist many years ago, a dinasaur wedded to multiple cameras and lenses, and a variety of films, filters,...
Summary: I wanted to purchase a lightweight easy to use point and shoot. I found that not only was this camera perfect in weight and size BUT the image quality is amazing. The flash isnt overbearing, the image stablizization feature works wonders, and the zoom distance is incredible.
Summary: Great little camera. With the sports mode, I took an action shot of the Cincinnati Reds pitching ace Chapman throwing a strike. My seats are 22 rows up behind 3rd base. The photo could have been used in Sports Illustrated! Wow ! What a camera. And it fits in my pocket.
Summary: Firstly, let me say this is a great little camera for the money. Photos are sharp, macro photos are nice. Outdoor photos are incredible, provided you have enough light. Takes about 250 photos a charge as advertised, however videos will eat the battery almost twice as much.
Summary: I bought this camera about two weeks ago to have a pocket size camera that takes good pictures. Granted it isn't a SLR, but that isn't what I wanted. It takes very sharp, clean, crisp photos and much faster than a more expensive camera that I own.
Summary: I needed a pocket size point and shoot with basic features for under $200. I really tried to compare features, reviews, etc for my new camera from numerous websites. While the FH25 had less reviews than the other Sony / Canon cameras in its class it generally had no negative reviews.
Summary: Overall, I am pleased with this camera. It's relatively "idiot proof" to use in automatic settings and takes good, high quality pictures. About the only shortcoming I've found is the lack of an internal program or setting to format a memory card.
Summary: I'm not a professional photographer. I enjoy the outdoors and wanted a small camera that I could point and shoot. I am particularly fascinated by cloud formations. I am thrilled with the sharp photos I am getting with this camera. The 16 megapixels allows for a lot of detail.
