The LUMIX DMC-FH25 shoots high-quality 16.1 megapixel images and combines a 28mm wide-angle LEICA DC lens with a powerful 8x optical zoom to take amazing photos. Redesigned with an easy-to-hold grip and slim and stylish profile, it features a 2.7" Intelligent LCD, 720p High Definition (HD) video recording and advanced iA (Intelligent Auto) for ease of use.

At the core of the LUMIX FH25 is the Venus Engine VI image processor with Intelligent Resolution technology for shooting clear and crisp digital photos and videos. The camera features a fast response time with shutter release lag times as short as approximately 0.005 seconds and, by adding Sonic Speed AutoFocus (AF), users can easily capture spur-of-the-moment photos. Using Intelligent Resolution technology, the Intelligent Zoom extends the powerful 8x optical zoom to 10x equivalent without compromising picture quality.

  • newegg Venus Engine VI The high-speed, high-performance Venus Engine VI is incorporated in the DMC-FH25 to enable the recording of beautiful images with higher quality signal processing including the Intelligent Resolution technology. An advanced noise reduction system in the Venus Engine VI applies noise reduction (NR) to luminance noise and chromatic noise separately. As a result, beautiful images with minimal noise can be reproduced all the way up to ISO1600 sensitivity at full resolution for beautiful night shots or dimly lit indoor shots.
  • newegg Get more in the picture with a wide angle lens and intelligent zoom The DMC-FH25 features a 28 mm wide-angle Leica DC Vario-Elmar lens with 8x optical zoom (35 mm camera equivalent: 28-224 mm). The 28 mm wide-angle lens lets you easily capture large groups of people indoors or expansive architectural structures. The 8x optical zoom lens gives you highly natural expressions from people and animals that you can’t get close to, with a 16.1-megapixel resolution. With the Intelligent Resolution technology, three areas (outlines, detailed texture areas and soft gradation areas) are automatically detected. Apart from the uniform enhancement of sharpness, this technology precisely performs signal processing pixel by pixel in the most effective way. As a result, images are clear and crisp. The Intelligent Zoom extends zoom ratio by approximately 1.3x, while the 8x optical zoom can virtually extend to 10x equivalent.
  • newegg Intelligent Auto ensures perfect shots every time In iA (Intelligent Auto) mode, advanced detection functions work automatically and simultaneously to optimise your settings, making it easier than ever to take beautiful photos every time. iA mode includes MEGA OIS to detect hand-shake, Intelligent ISO Control to detect subject movement, and Face Detection Auto Focus/Auto Exposure (AF/AE) to detect faces in the frame. AF Tracking continually tracks a moving subject and keeps it in focus, Intelligent Scene Selector works to detect scene conditions and Intelligent Exposure detects the brightness level.
  • newegg Sonic Speed AF Sonic Speed AF has been enhanced with numerous re-engineered improvements including optimized algorithms, a higher-speed actuator and parallel software processing. As a result, auto focus performance is significantly faster and more accurate than with previous versions. Additionally, the FH25 features 42% faster focusing than its predecessor, which is especially useful when trying to focus on subjects in motion.
  • newegg Create high-definition movies and then upload to your favourite social networking site Record motion pictures in high definition (1,280 x 720 pixels at 24 fps in Motion JPEG format). The DMC-FH25 can also upload photos and movies onto Facebook and YouTube. All you have to do is checkmark the photos and movies you want to share and connect the camera to your computer. Uploading automatically starts just by following the on screen instructions. With operation this easy, you can instantly share your photos and movies with your family and friends all over the world.
  • newegg Brilliant pictures from any angle The large 2.7 inch LCD features high 230,000-dot resolution Intelligent LCD. It automatically adjusts the brightness according to shooting conditions. This LCD provides sharp, clear images in virtually all shooting situations, ranging from night-time to bright daylight scenes. The High-angle mode makes the display extremely easy to view from a low angle, for example, when taking photos by raising your hand upward to capture the subject over the crowd.

4 out of 5 eggspretty good for a cheap compact camera

Pros: Slightly wider zoom (zoom back) than most cheap P&Shoot cameras = more versatility
Decent noise suppression for small camera
Nice feeling construction
Flash is away from where your fingers naturally hold the camera

Cons: Flash is close to lens, aggravating the possibility of red-eye and lens vignetting the flash output

Too many megapixels - far more than needed for 8"x10" prints, and printing larger makes processing artifacts more noticeable. Fills up your memory card faster too. Wish manufacturers stuck to 8-10MP for these kinds of cameras, and just worked on reducing artifacts.

Other Thoughts: At the self-named "unhappy in ny" guy, what you're probably seeing is a shadow from the lens blocking some of the flash illumination. The design of locating the flash so close to the lens barrel is at fault, so your camera isn't "broken." this is actually common in small cameras, including canon. Try zooming in a little on your shots with flash, or get creative to get the best possible light on the scene anyway without using the flash.
Pretty much all cameras with sensors this size make a lot of compromises to take pictures indoors when the scene isn't well-lit, if you mainly take pictures in restaurants or in the house, saving for a camera with a larger sensor is much better for the purpose (like sony's NEX series or the micro 4/3rds cameras, or a DSLR).

5 out of 5 eggsNice little pocket camera

Pros: For an automatic camera the contrast and color rendition is very good. I bought this as a "vacation camera" when I didn't want to haul around my bigger Canon. I haven't had any malfunctions with this camera. Stabilization works well and that's important in a camera this small.

Cons: Flash range is small of course. Have to remember to charge the battery, (my other cameras use disposable AA's in a pinch)

Other Thoughts: I've been a photo hobbyist for 40 years and the quality of digital cameras today is good enough I don't use my film cameras anymore.

1 out of 5 eggsGo with Canon

Pros: compact and thin and newegg rocks as usual!!!! Fast shipping as always but that has nothing to do with the item itself, I just had to put more here.

Cons: Noticed that every time I took a picture with the flash on that there was a dark spot on the bottom left of every picture. My fault I waited and my 60 iron egg return guarntee ran out 2 weeks ago. Panasonic said they would replace it with a refurbished one. No thank you it's only 2 months old.

Other Thoughts: Last time I will buy Panasonic anything, I'm not a fan of the company at this point. I can't believe they want to replaced a faulty one with refurbished one when it's so new. Never again will I buy this brand!!! Going back to Canon.

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad.

Pros: I don't know much about cameras, but having had quite a few digital point and shoot cameras, I can say I am very happy with the quality of this camera. Small form factor, good in low light, and captures action shots pretty well.

Cons: The usual. It's an inexpensive camera so don't expect top of the line results.

5 out of 5 eggsBest cam under $180 out there

Pros: - Fast mechanics, great for "quick partner, draw!!" pics
- Excellent picture quality (lens has a lot to do with that)
- Amazing macro ability
- really nice auto focus mode
- excellent image stabilization
- best true color portraits I have ever seen

Cons: - No manual controls for shutter speed, etc (for $150, did you really expect any?)
- rear of LCD gets "fingerprinty" quick
- battery runs out within an hour of solid use
- minor high-ISO noise in dim lighting (so, what do you expect? duh, it is a fully automatic camera trying to compensate for lighting issues)

Other Thoughts: Well, my trusty full-manual/auto point and shoot Fuji Finepix EXR72 finally bit the dust one day. I was on a budget so I had to settle for a non-manual cam in the $150 range, unlike the $250 Fuji.

This little camera is like a trustworthy gun of a cowboy, it draws and shoots fast and it is very light to carry and fits in any pocket. I have been amazed at how much this little guy can do. It's not as flexible as a full manual model but the pictures are very sharp and well exposed most of the time, with portraits being more realistic than any camera out there except for the Canons in the $300+ range. Most of the time the iAuto function takes care of the picture taking quite nicely. The wide-angle capture is just amazing. The 16-mpix sensor helps a bit over my old 10-mpix with enlargements, although the lens quality is much more important. I have owned Panasonic Lumix cameras and the image quality and stabilization really is tops (it REALLY WORKS). Versus Sony, Canon, Fuji? Best Buy...

4 out of 5 eggsNice for pictures, lackluster for video.

Pros: - Very fast startup time! This is a main reason I chose this camera, and I'm not disappointed.

- Autofocus is nice, and while the quick version isn't perfect, the full version is nice, and it even shows you on the screen what it's focusing on (and will prioritize faces over other objects) or will show a red rectangle (along with a different sort of beep) if it can't focus properly.

- The autofocus tracking is an impressive feature and definitely found some use, though as expected running on a camera it's not perfect.

- Nice auto modes, will work just fine for a wide variety of situations as advertised, I haven't needed to use any of the manual modes yet.

- Optical zoom's nice combined with the hand jitter reduction or whatever they call it (which isn't perfect, but it's good enough).

- Macro shots are nice. They're not professional-level, but they're a good bit better than the naked eye can see.

Cons: - Video format is MJPEG, not very efficient. I've seen way cheaper cameras that save in something like xvid on the fly, and from tests converting the videos off of this camera I can get big reductions in filesize from using codecs I've seen other cameras use. With the way this camera records you can only get 10-11 minutes of HD footage on a 4GB card.

- Battery/card cover hinge seems thin/weak, I honestly do fear it breaking.

- Can't change zoom while recording video, you need to set the zoom level before you start recording.

- Video quality is meh for being "HD", but it'll work just fine for home videos.

- Have to take the battery out of the camera to charge it. I know this is kinda' standard, but it doesn't stop it from being annoying.

- A couple options only work when taking pictures at the lower sizes, not the full 16MP.

Other Thoughts: - Video container is MOV... if it were AVI the video could be edited directly (or recompressed) in a wider variety of software, but with the MOV container even though the video is MJPEG it needs to be run through a converter or program that'll copy the frame data into a different container before proper editing.

- Menus are kinda' broken up, with different settings showing up depending on which mode you're in (and there's many modes). Having a single consolidated menu with all the settings in reach would have been less of a pain.

- Digital zoom isn't entirely terrible and might actually have a use once in a while.
