“Image quality is good at the lower ISO settings with digital noise becoming more noticeable at 400 ISO and above. Image quality at 1600 ISO renders images that are suitable for web use and smaller size prints.”

Excellent Point and Shoot
“Wow the pictures that he takes with this are excellent quality. We are generally a Nikon family so buying this Lumix was a stretch for me, but I’m glad I made the purchase. This is the best camera for the price.” – By cobb cruiser

best pics
“Takes great night pictures, flexible options for different types of scenes and 1 in 10 are the odds for blurry pics. Sure the recording function does not zoom while taping, but its a camera….enough said. Will not disappoint.” – By razou

VERY Pleased with Purchase of the Lumix FH25k
“Shots were HUGE on my monitor – I was very pleased with the sharpness, contrast, and color saturation in all of the test shots. Detail on some of the flower shots were amazing – gentle textures on the structures within the flower were razor sharp. Focusing is fast, so I doubt you’d ever have to blame the FH25 for a missed shot.” – By x

Received as a gift, BEST camera I own
“I have to take a lot of inside and outside photos and this is the camera I carry with me. I will say the night time photos are not the best unless you are taking them up close. My other cameras I grab to take photos I need to zoom in at night, from a distance. This one just pretty much takes a black photo and does not pick up much on zoom at night but that does not bother me.” – By A. Hudson

Perfect pocket size
“I was looking for a small lightweight camera and this fits the bill. Perfect for me Biking/Hiking, Indoor/outdoor. Flash seems to work well up to about 10′-12′ away for detail and will light up 30′ across the room in my house.. Simple to use.” – By MnWild

Good Camera
“Picture quality – 9/10 – produces sharp images with very good colour retention. Autofocus – 7/10 – generally very good, but missing is a real spot focusing like in high-end cameras.. Zoom and macro – 8/10 – close-ups come really nice,” – By tvb68

Outstanding Product
“It’s easy to use – whether you are taking close-ups, or panoramic shots, the controls are intuitive and handy. With flash, without flash, macro, zoom… it’s really just a few simple clicks and your taking great shots. Right out of the camera with no touch up the photos are well balanced and accurate.” – By sammywhat

Finally a decent camera that takes sharp photos
