Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS25
1 September 2009
Summary: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS25 is a 12.1 megapixel camera with a 5x optical zoom and 3in LCD panel. It's well-built, slim and elegant and has a range of features, including Intelligent Auto mode with scene detection and Face recognition that will make it an attractive option for those who want to get good pictures with little fuss.
Although it looks good, the camera is let down by small design flaws.
Pros: Stylish good looks., Responsive zoom with wide angle., Variable brightness LCD., Lots of Scene modes.
Cons: Switch for play instead of button., Flimsy battery cover., Face detection poor in low light., Some gimmicky scene modes.
Summary: Compared to the FS20, the FS25 boasts some significant enhancements including more zoom power, more resolution and better Intelligent Auto, but that may not be enough of a reason for somebody to upgrade to the FS25. Images are pretty hit or miss when using the FS25, often leaving us with unsatisfactory pictures when the conditions were blown out or the light changed.
Pros: Easy to use, Stylish and sleek, Compact and great for traveling
Cons: Unpredictable results, Poor ISO performance, AF too slow, Image quality not up to par
Summary: As with any tech purchase, it's best to try the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS25 before you buy it, thanks to the love-it-or-hate-it mini-joystick that you use to access most of the menu functions. That's really the only main drawback of this camera, which offers a wide-angle lens, fun features, a huge LCD screen, and great battery life for the price. If you can find the Lumix DMC-FS25 around the Â£200 price point, it provides excellent value for the money.
Summary: Panasonic makes some great 10-megapixel compacts, but seems to be struggling to get the best out of its 12-megapixel sensors -- the Lumix DMC-FS25, Lumix DMC-FX40 and Lumix DMC-FT1 all turn out slightly mushy detail.
Pros: Good design and controls, Big screen and clear interface, Quick-access button for the 'intelligent auto' mode
Cons: Fine detail lacks bite, Some scene modes work at lower resolution, Focus tracking is slow to lock on
Summary: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS25 very much carries on where the previous FS20 model left off, with a smattering of improved features to help justify the upgrade. This is a stylish ultra-compact point-and-shoot
that you can carry with you wherever you go, with an improved Intellligent Auto mode that achieves great results in
most situations with very little input required from the
