Summary: This little camera is awesome..Its a point and shoot packed with loads of options for a more advanced person..It takes awesome pics and videos, Just make sure you want something small, cause it is all of that. Ive read complaints about noise and weak flash, but if your not an advanced photo person, you wont notice it. The only valid complaint I see, is the battery life,,I bought two extra and that cures the prob for me.
Summary: I bought this camera and was quite disipionted with it. It was really thick and the top of the screen was broken after the second day. It also has to have a micro SD or a microSDHC or microSDXC memory card for it to fit in the hole. It doesn't have very many settings on it. It is very easy to navigate and it really does take good pictures, but for someone who likes to mess around with the settings it isn't the right camera.
Summary: I bought this based on the reviews, and am satisfied, but not jumping out of my chair with excitement about it. I've been using it for about a month, mostly in settings that are easy for just about any camera to handle: outdoors in daylight. I've mostly used the "auto" setting, but have also played around in "Program" and with some of the cooler features like the movie clips (each time you take a photo, it takes a tiny video and stitches a day's worth together).
Summary: Needed a simple to use and not too expensive camera to take on a cruise. The camera took great pictures even without my having to read the instruction manual. I really like how small it is easily fitting into my pants or shirt pocket. Wasn't clear on which sd memory card to buy, ended up ordering the wrong one (needed a micro one).
