4.0 out of 5 stars Megapixels but not megaquality, 17 Nov. 2012

This review is from: Panasonic DMC-TZ25EB-K Compact Camera - Black (12.1MP, 16x Optical Zoom) 3 inch LCD (Electronics)
Megapixels are not everything.For good reason in the market place it seems that compact cameras are fitted with sensors that do not match those of DSLRs. So you have a camera that has a fair lens, 12 MP but image quality that is only average with odd "noise" when cropped or enlarged.I have a 5year old 4MP compact which produces images which are as good, with better colour rendition.Generally though this is a good camera with a good zoom range and an effective image stabiliser allowing hand held work at 1/15second at wide angle-handy for blurring water in streams etc. Macro, as usual with most zoom compacts, only works well at wide angle which means you have to be almost touching the subject.It is still ok at higher zoom enabling reasonable size images of bigger butterflies and dragonflies but the minimum focus distance is limiting at these zoom settings.
Landscapes and people come out quite well. There are a mass of "modes" apparently for taking pictures of food or pets -why !?. The only one I suspect I'll ever use is the panoramic scene mode and this is super.Once you get the hang of it produces very exciting images indeed.
Putting it all together I am very pleased with this camera. Being so light I can take it everywhere and get reasonable images when I can't be bothered with the DSLR.
