Overview: The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FH25 is perfect for sophisticated users who want feature-rich, but easy-to-use camera in a small and pleasant package. The FH25 is a follow-up model for the FH20 and carries similar, but with upgraded and numerous new features, including 16 megapixel CCD sensor, a Leica lens with 8x optical zoom, redesigned image processor, and much more. With it’s affordable price and enough power for serious or for an amateur user, the DMC-FH25 has excellent value in the much competitive compact with medium zoom digital camera market. Now, let’s get more specific about it’s technology.
28mm Wide-angle 8x Optical Zoom Leica DC Lens is a high quality, 28mm wide angle Leica lens, with 8x optical zoom in a slim case. The lens comprises nice separate elements in seven groups, meaning there are three aspherical lenses with a six aspherical surfaces transporting brilliant optical performance in an impressively slim body. The 28mm wide angle also makes taking pictures of large groups of people, spreaded out or extended landscapes or architecture an ease, with immense depth and clarity, even when taken from short distance.
Powerful 8x Optical Zoom / 10x Intelligent Zoom lens captures natural expressions from any distance, always sharp and precise. The Intelligent Zoom coupled with Intelligent Resolution technology helps to extend the Zoom 1.3 times without giving out any quality, making the zoom to an equivalent of 10x optical zoom, bringing the far-away objects even closer.
16 megapixel High-resolution CCD sensor means the pictures taken are crisp and clear even printed out at A2 format – big enough to display a persons head and chest in actual size, that means highest quality on a 127 x 89mm or 178 x 127mm print. You can also crop or trim the photos in any way you like, without losing any quality.
Venus Engine makes the DMC-FH25 a real high-speed and high-performance camera, including higher signal processing, Intelligent Resolution technologies and also applying advanced noise reduction, helping to make images that have minimal or no noise even up to ISO1600 at full resolution(16MP). This simply means better quality images taken at night or in poorly lit rooms.
Sonic Speed AF have been improved with several enhancements, including optimized high-speed actuator and software processing. This leads to faster and to more accurate auto focus, specifically the FH25 features 42% quicker focusing than it’s predecessor, meaning it’s more precise when trying to focus on objects that are moving.
The NEW Intelligent Resolution is completely new image processing technology, it identifies three separate
areas on the photo taken: the outlines, soft gradation and detailed texture. The image will be processed intelligently inside the camera, the pixel-by-pixel sharpness uniform is applied, along with precise image optimization, resulting in crisp images with vivid colors and defined edges.
