Summary: This was purchased as a Christmas gift for my son,Chris. He absolutely loves it and all the features that it has. The picture quality is great and he likes how easy it is to use, along with the convenient, small size. The price for me was fantastic, especially with all the features it has and the quality of the pictures. It was surely a winner for him at Christmas.
Summary: All the pros in the reviews are worth repeating but I will not go to that extant here, The only con is, as only a few mentioned, is the LCD problem in bright light. It does act like a mirror and you have a hard time seeing any image. I have tried adjusting the settings to little value. Even with this problem I still like the camera. I also have a FZ28 and love it too, but it is big and heavy compared to this FH25.
Summary: I have owned a Panasonic camera since 2004 and loved the quality of pics and the ease of use. I have gifted one to my sister also. I had to retire my first panasonic after 6 years of use because while taking it out of the bag, I accidentally banged it on the wall lightly but the lens got stuck so I decided to buy a new camera because cameras nowadays are lighter and smaller even with the super zoom and my old panasonic has 12x zoom and was a bit big.
Summary: This is a great camera. Other reviews will give you the details. I will give you the but... This camera does NOT charge thru the USB cable. You must remove the battery and use the plug in charger. Other than that its great.
Summary: Very happy with this product and I like the optical zooming, yes it is a bit heavy, if it can be lighter a bit it will be wonderfull, the quality of the picture is sharp, not blurring for portrait as well as for scenery, really a bargain.
Summary: This is a phenomenal little camera. I have owned many digital cameras, but this one is great. Loaded with features and excellent picture quality. This is an awesome camera for the money; a great value.
Summary: I bought this same camera a couple years ago and had it until I left if on an airoplane. Purchased newer model and it only lasted a few months. A small portion of the screen turned black about the third time I used the camera and that spot just kept getting bigger over the course of a few months. I'm now looking online for a new camera and I won't be buying another Panasonic.
Disappointed at picture quality. There are better ones out there.

Summary: I got this camera because the reviews were pretty good here in Amazon, and the price looks right. I was hoping that I can get a compact camera which takes good picture quality that would replace my canon sx100 IS and I was sorely disappointed. Despite having a large 16mp camera sensor, the picture is much worse than my old canon sx100 is as well as other cheaper cameras that I have like my canon a590is.
