Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Flexible focus options. Lots of modes for different shot situations. Screen has brightness options to help in difficult lights. Natural looking flash shots. Film grain mode is great for moody black and white pics.
Bad points:
Video mode a little poor but, I suppose that is what a camcorder is for.

David, Lichfield Point & shoot

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use controls and menu options. Compact and lightweight. The Intelligent Auto mode generally produces excellent results. Zoom slider ideally located in front of shutter switch. A powerful zoom, large Display, and an abundance other features all for a competitive price.
Bad points:
Zoom action could be smoother! Robust ehough for day to day handling but looks as though it could suffer serious damage if dropped on a hard floor (Not that I have tried it!).

Tim, Worcestershire Point & shoot

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
it is everything that we wanted from a camera, small, very easy to use, lots of ease of use features - auto focus and anti-shake, which allow the worst of photograhpiers to take a great picture, battery life is pretty good too. pictures can be viewed easily via television.
Bad points:
photos taken at 12 mega pixels create hugh size files, as it is essenially a point and shoot camera, hugh files soon fill even a large capicity memory card.

Manufacturer's Description

29mm Wide-angle 5x Optical Zoom LEICA DC Lens and iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode with AF Tracking

Press the iA button, aim, and shoot. With the FS25/15, taking great photos is that easy. iA mode activates six detection and correction functions MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) to compensate hand-shake, Intelligent ISO Control to detect subject movement, Face Detection AF/AE to focus on faces in the frame and remove unwanted red-eye, Intelligent Scene Selector to select the optimal scene mode automatically, Intelligent Exposure to correct the brightness level, and AF Tracking to continually track a moving subject and keep it in focus.

The DMC-FS15 features a 29mm wide-angle 5x optical zoom LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens (35mm film camera equivalent: 29-145mm). Renowned in the film camera world for its superb performance and compact size, the LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens inherits its outstanding quality and form. The 29mm wide-angle lens can be used to capture groups of people at parties and other indoor scenes, as well as magnificent architectural structures and landscapes. The 5x optical zoom allows you to capture distant subjects without degrading image quality.

The DMC-FS15s 2.7-inch LCD has a total of 230,000 dots for high resolution. It features the Intelligent LCD function, which increases the backlight brightness in 11 steps according to the ambient light intensity. At the highest of these 11 steps, the LCD backlight becomes approx. 1.4 times brighter than normal. This makes both shooting and viewing photos easier and more convenient.
