The Lumix DMC-ZS25 looks almost identical to its brother the DMC-ZS30, with two main differences between them; the ZS25 offers a 16.1-megapixel HS MOS image sensor versus the ZS30's 18.1-megapixel sensor, and the ZS25 lacks built-in Wi-Fi connectivity. Other than than, these cameras share the same specifications; the ZS25 will just come in at a slightly lower MSRP. 

Although it looses a couple features when compared to the ZS30, the ZS25 is till quite appealing; and not just because of the lower price tag. It boasts the same powerful 20x Leica optical zoom lens, Power O.I.S. system with Panasonic's new 5 axis Hybrid O.I.S.+ correction, AVCHD full 1080 (60p) HD video recording, a 3.0-inch touch screen LCD, 10fps burst shooting, and a plethora of creative exposure modes and retouch features. All of which are packed into a compact shell.

  • 16.1-megapixel, High-Sensitivity MOS image sensor
  • Updated Venus Engine processing unit
  • 20x Leica optical zoom lens covers 24-480mm equivalent zoom range
  • Power O.I.S. image/video stabilization with upgraded Hybrid O.I.S.+ New 5 Axis correction  to help counteract both tilt and handskake
