Good Quality for the Price!

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: while it feels like a cheapy camera - this one actually give really great pics for its price - not for professionals but a lot better than some of the more expensive point and shoots out there
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: I primarily photograph my pets indoors and birds and small animals out doors, along with landscape. This camera has taken excellent indoor (low light) photos and outdoor wild life. Unfortunately, I haven't had the chance to use it for much in the way of landscape yet, but it has done everything I've asked of it, and done it very well. I did a lot of research before deciding to purchase this camera and so far, I am not at all disappointed that I did!
Summary: I purchased this camera to have a basic point and shoot to take photos of my family and friends. The only thing I did not like is that is did not zoom while taking a video. I took pictures and video in the dark at a recent concert and they turned out great and the sound quality was good too. It also takes photos really fast which is good when using it for children.
Summary: I am a novice photographer and basically wanted an easy to use point and shoot to take pictures of my family and friends. One reason I gave the camera 4 stars instead of 5 was because the camera does NOT zoom while taking video. I was a little upset b/c I thought that this version, unlike the FH20, was suppose to have this feature. I wish I purchased the ZS5 model instead. Besides that fact, everything about the camera is great. It takes very good quality photos fast.
Summary: I purchased this because I was very unhappy with the new Canon A3300 that I also purchased just a week before this one. I did extensive photo tests with both cameras because I felt the Canons overall sharpness was bad. Both cameras are 16mp and although i'm a Canon fan I have to say they failed on the A3300. Even with setting custom sharpness, contrast and saturation, the normal straight out of the box settings on the Panasonic were way better.
