Summary: I bought this camera in May 2011. It's a really good camera with great video and very clean photos. Its only problem is that after a year or so the battery gate does not close on its own. I normally use a piece of clear tape to keep it shut. This however does not affect the camera's performance.
Summary: I got this camera as an alternative to carrying my Rebel with zoom lens. On the pro side: 1. It takes nice pictures for its size. 2. Very portable .. I can carry it in my back pocket. Cons: Can only zoom to 3.3 after that the digital zoom takes over and you get pixilated pictures.
Summary: I like this camera, the only problem is sometimes it takes a while to take a picture with flash because it takes sometime after a flash for the screen to get back again to take another picture. But it is a good one for regular use.
Summary: good pictures with this camera. easy to learn menu for features to change settings, set the lighting, zoom in and out. use the good batteries with this camera, the extra durable not the cheap store brands.
Summary: The reasons I bought this camera was because this was on sale and as a birthday gift for my 12 year-old son. Image quality is ok and for a young boy who wants memories from his school days this more than serves his purpose.
