Thin body, wide lens, big screen: the Panasonic Lumix FS25

The DMC-FS25 as its newest addition to the LUMIX FS-Series of digital cameras. The 12.1-megapixel DMC-FS25 features a 5x optical zoom and a 29mm wide-angle LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens, a 3.0-inch intelligent LCD and is the top-of-the-line FS-Series model.

Panasonic

For the reasonably low price of $249.95 this April, Panasonic will be offering up a 12.1-megapixel ultracompact camera with a 5x f3.3-5.9 29-145mm-equivalent lens, a large, 3.0-inch LCD that automatically adjusts to lighting conditions, and optical image stabilization.

Dubbed the Lumix DMC-FS25, it's the top-of-the-line camera in the company's slim-and-stylish FS series. The camera, which will be available in gold, silver, and black, is loaded up with Panasonic's Intelligent Auto (iA) features including autofocus tracking, exposure, ISO, and scene selection control, and face detection (but sadly not the new face recognition system).
