Summary: I'm not a huge photographer, but bought this to take out in the woods with me. Pros: Idiot proof, it takes good pics on the regular settings. I don't have to fiddle with it. It has also held up to a lot of use and abuse. I damaged the screen, but it still functions fine. Cons: It can be hard to stabilize, so an unskilled photographer (me!) can end up with a lot of blurry photos.
