Excerpt: I like photography very much, but didn’t have much money to buy the DSLRs out there. Without a DSLR i couldn’t have manual settings. Then I did some Google search and found this model. After reading the features I thought it must be expensive, but when I saw the price I bought it the very next day and I am happy ever since. The good things (or the great things): The shutter speed, aperture, and focus can be adjusted manually!
Summary: The camera takes very nice pictures. The only thing that wish it had was a battery that could be charged by actually plugging the camera via a camera power line. That said, all else is just fine. I fish a lot (Saltwater) and it is a "hardy" little camera.
Besides always replacing batteries, its a great camera.

Summary: Its a very nice camera, but i should have paid more attention when it came to the part about the battery cause it goes QUICK.Should have gotten one with a charger. Besides the battery it takes great photos and very easy camera to use.
Summary: Good pictures but the flash is slow and there seems to be some lag between pictures. People complain about AA batteries but, extras are easy to carry, cheap, and readily available. Probably worth spending a little more and getting the next level camera.
Summary: This camera can be a good starting point for someone who wants to explore photography. Pros: 1) Lots of manual features 2) Very decent optics (for the price paid of course) 3) AA batteries, so that you never run out of power Cons: 1) It is not a camera to use in low light conditions. It's just not, as the flash recharges within 10 seconds! 2) 100 shots per set of batteries. Spare batteries should be always handy.
Summary: I bought this camera for my girlfriend and she really liked it.First time we had a problems with batteries.Some of them didnt last too long.I advice to any who buy this camera to purchase sanyo enelop or sony 2500 mAh AA Batteries.Thanks!
