ois active logo

The Panasonic's DMC-ZS25 digital camera's Power O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) with Active Mode compensates for hand-shake that causes blurred photos and videos. Even slight hand-shake movement is accurately detected and compensated for to produce sharp, clear images. Bring on the night portraits or scenes, shoot in dimly lit rooms, or hand-hold a macro shot with confidence that the Power O.I.S. will keep your pictures sharp. Active Mode will keep your videos crisp and clear.

Powerful 20x Leica Optical Zoom/40x Intelligent Zoom in a Slim Body

The ultimate travel camera has to be small, but powerful, and that is what the DMC-ZS25 compact camera delivers. The powerful 20x optical zoom lens (35mm camera equivalent: 24-480mm) brings your subjects up close capturing natural expressions of people and animals along with amazing sports photos. If the 20x optical zoom is not long enough, the in-camera's Intelligent Zoom uses digital zoom technology with minimum deterioration of image quality thanks to the Intelligent Resolution technology. The 20x optical zoom virtually extends to a 40x zoom equivalent.

Create Your Memories With Built-In Creative Effects

Take the ordinary and make it extraordinary by fueling your creativity with the Creative Control feature (in the recording mode) and the Creative Retouch feature (in the playback mode). Take simple or complicated scenes and make them easy to capture in a great photo. Set the digital camera to match your scene and it uses sophisticated presets to optimize the camera settings resulting in amazing photos. 12 Creative Panorama filter effects take your panorama images to the next level. Delight in the creative possibilities that Intelligent HDR (High Dynamic Range) delivers. Shoot several still pictures consecutively at different exposures that are then overlaid to produce a single composite picture without over-exposure or under-exposure.

Recharge Easily From USB When You Travel

You'll always be ready for your next photographic journey with the convenience of recharging on the go. Panasonic DMC-ZS25 camera's the USB Port or AC USB Adapter will keep you shooting. Take approximately 260 shots on a single battery charge, based on the CIPA standard, with the efficient, rechargeable lithium-ion battery.

High Sensitivity 16.1 Megapixel MOS Sensor for Superior Low Light Photography

The Panasonic DMC-ZS25 compact digital camera features a 16.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS sensor that boasts high-speed signal output and high-sensitivity image recording for making advanced features possible. It allows shooting images up to ISO 3200 in full resolution.

Big, Bright 3.0-inch LCD

The DMC-ZS25 digital camera has a 3.0-inch 460K-dot LCD with a 100% field of view. LUMIX's acclaimed Intelligent LCD technology automatically adjusts the brightness in 11 step increments according to your shooting conditions, letting you share the fun of viewing images with family and friends too.

Easy to Use Manual Control and Custom Mode

For those looking to switch from the Point and Shot and take on more creative control, the Panasonic DMC-ZS25 camera has easy-to-use manual controls. You can set the aperture to control the depth of field, and adjust the shutter speed to freeze moving subjects or create a motion blur that exaggerates the feeling of movement. There are also 4 custom setting patterns you can program into the camera (1 on C1 and 3 on C2).

iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode Takes the Guesswork Out of Photography

I just got this camera in time for the first nice weather weekend on the East Coast and we went to NYC with the family for a nice day in Central Park.
I purchases a ZS10 2 years ago and skipped last year's model to buy the ZS25 this year.

It is a very fast camera from start up time to auto focus time and shutter release. I can't even tell the difference in speed compared to my DSLR (5 yrs old)

Lumix is known for superior lens quality - I read an article that they have a very close working relationship with Leica which speaks for itself. So I wasn't surprised at the image quality - even at max zoom. BTW keep in mind this is a 24 mm to 480 mm lens - meaning that 24 mm is a nice wide angle - comes in handy for indoor and nice group shots.

The reason I sound so exciting is the video capability of this camera. We went to a school concert the other night and I took some incredible videos of our little girl on stage. Just make sure you switch the recoding mode to MP4 - the default setting is on AVCHD the compression mode that no computer can read!
The videos I took were great - not too noisy even though it was real dark.

I am very pleased and feel this is a great little camera that is compact but gives you lots of shooting options.

I was deciding between the ZS25 and the Canon SX280HS. I felt that the Canon had better picture quality but the battery life issue during video was a deal breaker. I decided to go with the ZS25 and I am impressed with it so far.

Pros
- Compact size. Perfect for traveling especially with the ability to charge the battery in the camera.
- Leica lens
- Very good picture quality with natural looking colors
- 20x optical zoom is impressive. Ability to zoom to 40x with intelligent resolution and maintain very good picture quality. See the pictures I posted.
- Intelligent Auto does a great job picking the best settings for the situation.
- Pictures taken with HDR have significantly better exposure
- Very good pictures in low light situations
- Panorama feature
- Very good HD video capability
- Many creative picture features
- Decent battery life (200+ shots with good mix of pictures, video, and flash). You should get a spare battery if you plan to be shooting for a full day.
- Made in Japan

Cons
- Pictures can appear soft. Intelligent Resolution makes the pictures noticeably sharper.
- Pictures viewed at 100% can appear noisy. This should not be an issue if printing to typical smaller photo sizes.
- Panorama feature is nice but picture quality is not as good as regular pictures
- Videos with zoom fully extended and be a little shaky

I gave the ZS25 four stars because the picture quality does not seem to be as good as my old Panasonic DMC-LZ2. The DMC-LZ2 takes excellent pictures for a 5MP point and shoot.

Overall, the ZS25 is a very good camera with many useful features. The Intelligent Auto feature makes it easy for anyone to take very good pictures with no effort, which is what many people look for in a point and shoot camera.

I have used the older model DMC-TZ5 for several years and love it. Previously I have owned Sony, Nikon and Canon pocket digital cameras and ended up giving them away. Lumix is by far the best. I wanted to upgrade to this DMC-ZS25 for more MP and the extended Zoom. This is an excellent camera for trips and vacations. It is small, light, compact and fits in your pocket. If you do not want to carry bulky DSLR's and still get lots of functions this is a good choice.

The only issue I have is Panasonic did away with the external battery charger. Now the battery has to be in the camera to charge. A USB cable and an external plug is provided. I do not like this system. Should something go wrong you will never be able to charge the battery. This has happened to the SONY DSC P1 a camera I purchased in 2001 for $799.00.

Panasonic DE-A65B battery charger adapter will work with this battery, DMW-BCG10PP. Since the spare batteries are sold on Amazon by third party vendors with many negative reviews I decided to purchase the spare battery and charger from Adorama.

Another minor issue I have is the microphone is mono and not stereo. This was not a deal breaker because the camera is great and Amazon had it at a reasonable price with quick shipping.

If you plan on keeping the camera for a while I would strongly recommend purchasing the battery charger adapter while they are still being made. It is actually a spare part for a different older model.

This little camera does it all very well. I am in my late sixties and I have been a photo buff most of my life. I am so happy to now have my ZS25 for my travel camera. It is very lightweight, simple, sturdy, and it takes great pictures.
The 24-480 mm lens is amazingly clear and undistorted throughout the range and the image stabilization lets you use that 480 in situations where you normally wouldn't even try.
I shoot mostly with the smart ISO setting. However, having a preset "scene" at the ready is very nice and it is simple and quick to change. I normally have mine set to "through glass" for candid shots through windows. As if that were not enough this little camera also has full manual settings plus Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, and exposure compensation. So if your creative juices start flowing you have all the tools available.
The HD setting is one I thought I would not use much. However, after a few experiments I now just leave it on. Its biggest benefit is in backlit shots. It averages out a nice exposure almost every time. The HD effect is not the unrealistic overdone effect that you see in the photos making the rounds on the web. It simply brings out some highlights that have been missed in the given lighting conditions. That makes this camera truly a point-and-shoot. All you have to do is pay attention to your composition.
I don't know what more you could ask of a point-and-shoot camera. Panasonic has created the ultimate in this model. I once read a wise statement somewhere to the effect that "the worst camera in the world is the one you left home because you didn't want to bother carrying it around with you." You need never be in that situation again. There is always room for the ZS25.
