Summary: Great camera for a beginner. Breattaking landscape shots. I get alot of use out of the high speed video especially when the subject is well lit. This camera takes the guess work out of getting your best shot. Has features that I miss on my DSLR.
Summary: this camera works great, nice pictures byt i purchased for video. use for golf club fitting great video. the only draw back was the instruction book that came with camera was in chinese but downloaded instruct off internet
Summary: I regret the purchase of this camera for still photos. This is not a camera for novices. Occasionally I get really nice shots, but more often they come out blurry and/or grainy. I bought it because it seemed to have some DSLR-like features and at the time was selling for less than the entry level DSLRs on the market. I paid close to $300 for it. I can't believe the current asking price for this camera.
Summary: It definitely took some time to get used to this one. I'm familiar with SLR cameras, but not ones with so many features like the high speed video and multi-shot. I bought this specifically because of the high speed video. I wish the resolution were better, but you'd have a hard time finding 120 or 240 fps at this price with another camera.
All in all a great camera, and very good value for money!

Summary: Bought the camera for the high speed feature. And it is great up to 420fps. The 1000 fps is low resolution and the aspect ratio is very low. Remember that you need good light when filming in high speed! The camera didn't quite live up to my expectations for the 1000fps high speed filming, the reason for this could be to high expectations. Other features that I like is the "Best Shot" function. Lots and lots of cool ways to take pictures.
Summary: You really can't buy a better "underdog brand" camera than this one... I really toke my time to find out what fits better a guy lite me, that wanted to take astonishing shoots without taking a photography class, without changing lenses, and having everything always ready to shoot!... This is a ultra impressive capabilities point and shoot camera.. That will really got you playing for months to come!.. What a nice piece of equipment guys! Just, don't think about it!
Best camera for the features and the money, buy it!

Summary: the absolute best camera for the intermediate photographer it's has plenty of customizable feature but also has many preset features (in the best shot mode). All this and it is still reasonably priced. it's high speed modes are phenomenal even the night time high speed mode. it has a manuel focus but it's nothing a like a professional grade manuel focus.
Summary: This is a fantastic camera that takes still photographs to rival any mid level DSLR. The video quality is top-notch for a point and shoot and the only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is that you lose picture size when you engage the high-speed movie function. This is an unfortunate nature-of-the-beast feature when you are dealing with a feature that takes up an enormous amount of memory.
Summary: This is a more than adequate camera with incredible features. It's bigger than pocket size and well worth it because of its built-in options. There's no need for switching out lenses when the 20X zoom is in the body. No need to switch to a video cam when video capability is in the body. There's the speed setting to capture 40 frames in one second, so the best frame can be selected for print.
