Touch screen functions are a little difficult to learn

Summary: I have had this camera a few weeks, and it took some time to learn how to use it. The touch screen functions are quite different from the usual switches, but I am getting used to it. You have to touch the screen fairly hard to select a function, but that is better than being too sensitive. The touch screen appearance is great, and you can see it outdoors, but not with the sun directly on it. A few of my pictures have had poor color, but most are excellent.
Summary: Cheap but smart. This camera fits your jeans trousers but can take bright and shaped photos in every light condition. Many (even too much) shot programs may help you in every condition. Wi-fi connection but has no gps unit.
Summary: This is a really nice camera, but it's a little bit complicated. I had to read the manual, but have never done that before. The battery life is a little short, but other then that the pictures and video is really clear and nice.
Summary: the camera takes really good pictures, zoom is very good for a small camera. I have been having trouble using it however because it is so small. I keep hitting the "review" button it is too close to the trigger button. I am sure I will get used to it, and grow to love it. The size is great for pocket.
Summary: Overall, I love the camera. Nice form factor and features. The touch screen works pretty well. The 12x zoom is good. But, I miss my optical zoom. I would pay an extra $100 or more for a camera with the same features as this camera if it had an optical view finder also. I have a hard time seeing the touch screen while shooting outside.
Conclusion: I bought this camera as point and shoot for my dslr One of the review(at the bottom) said there are no manual option. But there is one. If you used canon camera, word P is manual setting. It is great except the screen. Screen is not a static but pressure. It means it has films on it. Not like smart phone screen. Respond time is longer and sometimes it doesn't work. So if you want to buy this product, you should try ou the working one.
Pros: Good Low-Light Performance, Nice features/settings, excellent image quality, easy to use
