Summary: The camera's fine I'm sure; haven't had it long, but the FIRST thing we noticed as we took it out of the box was that the case had no belt strap. Good way to lose your camera sooner or later, nevermind the inconvenience of having to hold something all the time. There's also no side opening to allow charging while the camera's in the case. Unacceptable. We'll need to find a replacement or have a shoe repair guy modify this one.
Summary: Bought to replace a DMC-TZ3 that had vertical lines in the image view and prints. Looked okay on camera screen. Panasonic said it's out of warranty. Liked size and style so I bought this ZS25 to replace. Then I ordered a new sensor for the old one and fixed myself for about $20. Hope this one doesn't have the same problem as many of the older ones.
Pros: small easy to use.
Cons: panasonic doesn't back known product defects.
