Casio EX-FH25 Lens details

The EX-FH25 comes with a built-in lens having a focal range of 26-520mm giving it a 20.0 x zoom which is huge and can make it easier to zoom right in.

At it's widest 26mm, it offers an aperture of f2.8 and that's kind of sluggish and not great in low light conditions and you will probably struggle to capture good bokeh. You will also have to raise your ISO setting causing noisy photos. Towards the long end, 520mm is superb zoom and comes at f4.5 which is pretty slow and you will have to use slower shutter speeds.
