Summary: I've had this now for about 6 months and so far, I am more than pleased with the photos this camera takes. The zoom works great for both photos and movies. I'm a professional photographer and this is my "always have camera" because it' compact and fits in my pocket so I don't have to haul all my gear out sometimes on ski trips and long mountain bike rides.
Summary: This camera takes super pix and its easy to use . The size is small enough to carry in pockets or bags but its a nice size for holding on to while using it. I would recommend this camera ... It has plenty of features for the more experienced photographer but its easy to just point and shoot too.
Summary: I really like this camera, for several reasons. I like that it powers up quickly and that it has no delay for shutter release when I push the button. I also find that I use the panorama mode more than expected, so that's a great feature. The zoom is plenty long enough, and I have no problems with its shutter speed. It has a lot of various modes which I may never use, like firework or dog mode, but we'll see.
