Ole? I bought this camera in August 2013, and it is a great buy!

Summary: Was pleased with this camera to begin with...lost it first of Feb. 2014, and found it in the woods in the mountains of Western NC. It had been out in rain, lots of sub-freezing weather, and having 10 inches of snow melting on it. After two weeks of this it still works perfectly! Amazing! The dog of a neighbor found it for us.
Summary: I first want to write I originally purchased the Canon PowerShot SX510 for the same price as this camera thinking I was getting more camera for my money. I was wrong, I returned that camera, purchased this one and glad I did. My whole reason for upgrading my camera (I had a Canon SX210 which is an excellent camera) was to get a better zoom. The 30X zoom is fantastic but needs the 16 megapixels to make crisp, clear pictures when you crop them.
Summary: great! Camera for the money was very surprised excellent pics and zoom is great! Glad I got it its better then any other I have got before if you do not have one and are looking for more then your moneys worth you will not go wrong here bottom line
Summary: After reading the rave reviews on this camera, I have to say I'm very disappointed on the macro or up close photography. I bought this primarily for taking photos of my pottery for my web site, etsy site etc. Using the macro setting produces a curved distorted look to the item. I have tried a number of settings, changing my distances etc with no change. The colors are not the best either and they appear very fake.
