heyy, I’m looking to get one of these, but my major concern is not being able to put any lenses on it, it doesn’t seem to have any threading. are there any methods (adapters of some sort) that i can employ to use my lenses? i have 49 mm (ol’ pentax) lenses, and im looking to buy new ones to work with this camera…
can anyone help me?

In response to Ralf’s question:
as this is a bridge camera it does not need lense changes so you don’t have to carry so much luggage! If you insist on using the old lenses, you need to buy an SLR camera that fits pentax lenses.

Upgraded from a small Casio Exilim and sorry I did so at this point. Batteries in EX-FH25BK seem to last about two days. Even when not taking pictures the batteries go dead. I’ve gotten to the point that I have to store it with the battery compartment open with a piece of paper installed to make sure the batteries can discharge. Of course when I need to use it the date/time has to be reset.
Also far from a camera expert and why we used the upgrade program to seek a better camera that would be pretty easy to use.
Unfortunately most of the pictures are blurry. Have tried just about every setting possible and even used a tripod and pictures still blurry. The burst function is a great idea but again the pictures are blurry.
IT’s a cool looking camera but way too big and will go back to the slim Exilim slime type camera we had. Easy to use and easy to carry always at the ready to take a cool picture.

Even today (July 2012) none of the consumer cameras with high-speed capture can come near the Casio FH-25. This includes the Nikon 1, AW100 or even the newer high-speed Exilims from Casio.

Only the FH-25 allows you to set the shutter speed of up to 1/1000 in high-speed video or burst mode stills. Without this ability when you freeze-frame during playback all you’ll see is a blur where there is fast moving objects such as the head of the golf club at impact or the arm of a pitcher. The FH-25 shows freezes the action.

If you’ve got one of these just hang to it for sports photography. Other cameras promising the same features will disappoint you.

I got the FH-20 version about 4 years ago for action photography.  It works pretty well, but the bigger sensor on the FH-25 would be helpful.

Pluses- many high speed capture modes, fairly easy to use. Works great at high light levels.

Minuses- autofocus sometimes has problems making up its mind.  Doesn’t do well in gray light- cloudy skies.

The high zoom is rarely used. It is impossible to follow any action, even at 20x zoom.

The 4 pen cell battery is great.  I bought 8 Sony Eneloop batteries and a charger.  They work for several days of shooting.
