One of the main features on the EX-FH25 is its 20x optical zoom lens. This allows you to take vast landscape shots at the 26mm wide end, or use the telephoto zoom with a 35mm equivalent of 520mm. This is an all-glass, multi-coated lens constructed of 14 elements in 11 groups (including aspherical lens) with a maximum aperture of F2.8 - F4.5.

This camera uses a contrast detection autofocus system with spot, free or tracking modes. To assist with focusing in low-light, Casio has included an AF-assist Illuminator.

Focus Range:
  • Auto Focus - 4.7" to infinity (W) (12cm to infinity)
  • Macro Focus - 4.7" to 19.7" (W) (12cm to 50cm)
  • Super Macro - 0.4" to 4.7" (1cm to 12cm)
  • Manual Focus - 4.7" to infinity (W) (12cm to infinity)





casio_fh25_flash.jpgThe FH25's pop-up flash operates in auto, forced on, forced off and red-eye reduction modes. Its working range at ISO auto is up to 23" (7.0m) at the wide end or 14.4" (4.4m) telephoto. When using the flash continuous shooting mode, the maximum range is reduced to 7.5" (2.3m) at the wide end.





casio_fh25_controls_top.jpgOn top of the camera, there are just a few controls. First you have the mode selection dial, which allows you to quickly access the high-speed photo and video features of the camera. Next is the Power button, and at the top you have the shutter release with the zoom control coupled around it.





casio_fh25_back.jpgOn the back is a large 3.0-inch, wide-format LCD monitor with 230,400 (960x240) pixels of resolution. This monitor offers 100% frame coverage and can be used to frame or review images as well as navigate the menu screens.

Above the LCD is your other image framing option, the EVF (Electronic ViewFinder), which is simple a tiny 0.2-inch LCD screen mounted in a magnified eye piece. This unit offers 201K pixels of resolution and can display all of the same exposure info and menus as the main LCD on the back. It offers a rubber eye cup as well as a dioptric adjustment for those who wear glasses. Controls mounted around the EVF include the EVF/LCD button which switched between the displays as well as at the Play and Record mode buttons. Depending on the menu setting, these buttons can power the camera on when pressed.

Back Controls:

On top is the display button, which changes the amount of information overlays either the record or playback image. Next the Menu button gives access to all of the camera's menus and settings. To the right is the BS (Best Shot Selector) button. Here is where you will find all of Casio's pre-set shooting modes. Finally at the bottom is the 4-way controller and Set button. These are used to navigate and select options in the menus. Pressing down either deletes an image or jumps you to the flash settings, depending on the camera mode.

On the left hand side of the camera are the I/O ports. At the top is the DC 9V in port. Next is the USB/AV port handles both the USB 2.0 (High-speed) connectivity to your PC/Mac or PictBridge compatible printer as well as the standard RCA type video output (NTSC or PAL modes).












casio_fh25_sd.jpgThe Casio FH25 uses SD/SDHC memory cards to store your images and videos. This is in addition to the 85.9MB of internal memory. Image data can be copied to/from internal memory and a flash card via the Playback menu. Shown here with a SanDisk Ultra II 4GB SDHC card.

casio_fh25_batteries.jpg
The FH25 is powered by 4 AA-sized batteries. Using alkaline batteries, Casio claims that the camera is capable of capturing approx. 320 shots, while the camera can capture approx. 470 images with a set of Ni-MH rechargeable batteries, which we highly recommend.
