Summary: One of the benefits of shopping Amazon.com is the access to nearly new stock of items that were proven good in the past but are no longer available elsewhere. Certainly newer models are available, but this camera produces excellent photos with its automatic controls. It runs on easily obtainable "AA" cells and has a high quality viewing screen. This one was bought to replace one bought several years ago that was damaged.
Summary: I saw this camera was rated #1 for point and shoot image quality on some camera review sites. It also has quite a lot of flexibility in choosing how you want your photos shot. This is a great camera that I can carry when it's not convenient to have my big DSLR and lenses with me. I've dropped it several times and although it's a bit scratched up now, it still takes great photos and battey life is excellent!
Summary: Unfortunately after about 2 years I started having sensor issues with all the pictures turning purple and streaky. But until that point I loved this camera. Compact, tons of features, great options for different scene settings.
Summary: I purchased this camera as an extra. Whenever my Husband and I go to the zoo or sightseeing I always have him take photos just in case my DSLR doesn't capture the closeups the way I like. Well Hubby has gotten many gorgeous shots that I have missed. This little camera is amazing and I highly recommend it. Since it only has a 4x zoom it is not reliable for zoom shots but hey that's what the DSLR is for. You will love this little easy to carry camera.
