Panasonic DMC-FH25 Camera Reviews Roundup

"The Panasonic FH25 follows in its older sibling's footsteps and even outperforms it in a few ways. It is one of the best point-and-shoot deals on the market, and should please casual shooters who want great-looking pictures, more zoom than the average camera, and in a convenient size that will travel anywhere. The FH25 has a twin sister in the FH27, wh..."

"The FH25's photo quality is good to very good, but people expecting to be wowed by its 16-megapixel resolution may be disappointed. Though subjects look somewhat soft from the get-go, there isn't much difference from ISO 100 to ISO 400. That means shots taken in good lighting are quite nice and thanks to Panasonic's "Intelligent" technology, you c..." More »

"The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH25 is a compact camera that lends itself to family and travel photography. The camera is simple to operate and provides a feature set that is in-line with expectations for this type of camera. Based on our tests with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH25, the 8x optical zoom coupled with Panasonic's optical image stabilizer technology..."

User Review of the camera - Panasonic DMC-FH25

    Good Bang for you Buck, Theresa

    This is an excellent little compact camera. It is easy to use, small, has a pretty nice zoom, and the pictures turn out really nice. They are not the quality of an SLR, but you can't expect that with a compact. I've had it for over a year now and it has held up great, basically just like new still. It's easy to recharge the battery and easy to load pictures to my computer. This seems to me to be much nicer than other compact digital cameras I have owned in the past. I feel Panasonic is always a quality brand anyway. I've owned other Panasonic electronic equipment and it seems to always be good quality and last a long, long time. I feel this was definitely worth the money.

    POS! I had this camera for about 6 month and took it on a motorcycle trip. Then the camera would not initialize and was giving "system zoom error" Don't buy this hunk of crap!

    I got this camera for my wife, and she has learned how to use it for her purpose - snapshots of the grandchildren. I have not used the camera myself, but I do have to edit most of the pictures she gets with it, to improve image quality. It has more than enough resolution, but lens quality is not very much, so enlarging images very much produces a degraded result, in spite of the resolution.
    But overall, My wife has been pleased with it and uses it often.

    LOVE THIS CAMERA!, Desert Rose

    The Panasonic cameras have served me well for over 20 and digital. The reason for upgrading and replacement is because of many, many, many videos and photos from our travel adventurers and special events in our lives...just plain 'wore them out!' I have over 55,000 photos in my computer library. Had my last Panasonic for 5-6 yrs...took over 20,000 photos with this camera!
    I specifically look for and like where all the physical features are located on ALL my Panasonic cameras...ease of finger placement, slide off and on, clarity of photos, ease of transferring to my Picasa photo program. I had this similar camera: it died in the beginning of our recent vacation...bought a different one locally until...had no Panasonics! Came home, got on our faithful Net, found this new camera with the identical physical features but with a wide-angle lense, 8 X instead of the 6X that passed, fits great in my hand and small pockets in m travel purse. THE PRICE IS EXCELLENT FOR AN EXCELLENT CAMERA!!!! Bought the BLACK, a lot less expensive for the identical cameras with a fashion color.
    Amazon is so easy and comfortable to deal with:great prices and service!

    I've had this camera for about two years now and I don't go anywhere without it. It takes great pictures using the normal sittings. I have experimented a little using some of the other sittings but always seem to go back to automatic. Great digital camera for someone who just wants the convenience of a fairly simple camera.

    We bought a Nikon Coolpix to take on our honeymoon and hated it! We returned it when we got back and go this camera. This camera is still small but takes great pictures and has a nice zoom. You don't have to change the settings - it takes great pictures on the Auto setting. I would highly recommend this camera if you are looking for a simple point and shoot camera.

    I bought this camera to replace another I had that was same brand and similar. Have only had it 7 months and already it has issues. Won't open up and as I bought it online I think I am stuck with a defunct camera! Very disappointed as I did like my original Lumix but that too stopped working after a couple of years.

    Meh., Melissa "sesella_stellae"

    I bought this camera because I had the previous Panasonic model---it's okay, but for the price, I was expecting more. My current favorite is the Canon S110--a bit more expensive, but better overall. This one seems to be too in between the inexpensive and expensive models, and the picture quality isn't where it should be.

    Had this camera for 15mos. and it developed a focusing problem. It worked okay up to this time. There was no physical damage. Panasonic customer service was no help. I will not buy a Panasonic camera again.

    What a lousy camera.., IT Engineer "Cano2"
    Verified Purchase(
    It takes OK pictures, but here is the issues that drive me insane about it.
    1) Proprietary cables.. I mean really? 86% of all devices in the world use Android-Style cables, and these guys seem to choose proprietary ones. It makes no sense, and it's a huge annoyance always trying to find the cables. Not good!
    2) Proprietary battery.. Yup, always out of charge, and hunting for the charger. What happened to using AA batteries, where you never find yourself out of batteries? Get with it guys.
    Those two annoyances are enough to tell people to steer clear of this camera.. It's OK for point and shoot, but those annoyances will rapidly catch up, and drive you away. My advice to people is to FIND the Kodak Point and Shoot's before they are all gone. Specifically the Easyshare 1550 is remarkable, 16mp, 5x Zoom, Android Cables, AA Batteries. 1530 is OK but only 3x Zoom, but same as 1550 overall. Kodak always did it right, and always had the best digital cameras, and never tried to be 'different' with proprietary nonsense. Panasonic could learn from them.
    I regret this camera, I really do!
