Summary: This camera has many of the features that I was looking for when selecting a compact point and shoot to replace a DSLR that due to poverty was forced to return. Let me go over some of the highlights of this camera for you. SENSOR SHIFT IMAGE STABILIZATION While it's not as good as optical image stabilization it's better than the old digital only type and having it at all is better than nothing.
Summary: I purchased this camera for my wife for Mother's Day in 2013. It takes great pics and fits easy in the pocket or purse. My wife just loves it. She takes the camera almost everywhere she goes. This camera has a lot of features for the price. I recommend this camera for anyone wanting an easy camera to use.
Summary: I bought this for my husband as a father's day gift. It was a great little camera for taking on vacation and returning with snapshots of our travels. No problems with any of the features, most pictures turned out great - the ones that weren't so good were operator errors. Great value for the price, and I did a lot of comparison shopping online and in stores.
Summary: Not only do you get a lot of features for a very low price, but camera is relatively sturdily built, the automatic settings work very well, and it takes excellent pictures. I continue to be mightily impressed with the camera, several months after purchase. Low light performance is excellent since it has a MOS chip, something almost non-existent in cameras near this price.
