Summary: I have bought several digital cameras in the past, kodak, canon, and others. I wanted something that would take fast moving shots of my pups playing. This camera does an excellent job of taking action shots! Also the battery life is unbelievable, and goes and goes and goes.....easy to use with features I love.
Summary: Have had it for 6 months now and read the manual twice but still continue to find amazing new features it has. Great image quality and movie options. Happy with the purchase and it was actually $40 more back when I got it.
Supposedly not sold in this country and all text in Japanese

Summary: I bought this camera, because I THOUGHT it was the same one I had just borrowed from my son, Rick, for a vacation. He sent me a link and I ordered it. The entire instruction booklet is entirely in Japanese. When I attempted to charge it, the 2 plugs didn't have the same ends to connect. I found there was an adapter that went between them. Once charged, the menus inside the camera where all in Japanese. Rick walked me through changing the language.
Summary: More features and functions than I have ever seen in a point and shoot camera. 16 megapixel resolution is sharp. Great camera for an amateur. Not only compatible with my Eye-fi card, Eye-fi card power can be turned off in menu to save battery life. Great buy.
Summary: I love this camera! I bought this because of all others comments. I had a Nikon cool pix. Awful. Went back to a Casio . Thanks for the quick instructions from some comment to change language to English. That 's all I needed to start taking pictures. The shutter speed is fast!The pictures r in focus! Love the panerama feature! This camera is great!
Summary: This may be a fine camera but the enclosed "directions" are entirely in Japanese, so I really can't say. After opening the box Amazon sent I was entirely lost as to setting it up for use. I assumed that first the the battery had to be charged but there seemed to be no obvious way to even do that that. Is a separate charger needed?, I don't know. If Amazon is selling this item it should provide user instructions in English.
Tons of features and the highspeed footage is amazing for the price.

Summary: Bought it for my family as a decent tour camera for trips, and around the house shooting. I also found it to be an excellent tool to track my progress in rifle target practice through a scope. The features can seem a little daunting from the get go, but one search on the internet for the english documentation solved that quickly. It came from Japan, and with japanese instructions.
Summary: No manual with camera. I printed from Web. Manual difficult to understand and has very poor layout, must shift back and forth from pages. Easy to hit movie button while pressing picture 'shoot' button. The thumb easily rest on the movie start button. Camera on-off is not easy to press without having long finger nails.
Summary: This camera exceeds all picture quality expectations. I would have given a 5 star if instructions had come in English and if it had come with a stand alone battery charger vs charging through the camera. Casio makes a great point and shoot. Love the triple shot and art modes. Highly recommend this camera.
