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: 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
