Summary: When I bought this camera, I was scared because I have not made such an investment in a very long time. I spent several years researching DSLR cameras, so when I came across this one and read the reviews, I decided to take a leap of faith. I am not disappointed in the least in my decision. The camera is very easy to get to know and the pictures have been nothing short of stunning.
Summary: I'm really happy with this camera. The quality is pretty good and for my needs it exceeds expectations. i have used more expensive cameras with a lot of features but like the price says you are not getting a lot of features but overall it's a great product.
Summary: I bought this camera in November 2012, have taken it to 2 concerts and the first one the pictures were awful and the zoom in was even worse! This is not the camera's issue it was mine. I learned to adjust the settings and the next time I attended a concert and the artist was even farther away, the pictures turned out really great! I owned a Fuji S3200 which was by far a better camera and unfortunately it was stolen. The comparison is not fair.
Summary: i love it the camera, has a lot of functions for a photo enthusiast, and for the price the quality of pictures is very good; love the multiple camer options. I used in a honey moon trip and Oh my god! i was surprised of the versatibility of the camera!
Summary: Prior to buying this camera all I had ever owned in the way of digital camera's were second hand ones I purchased at a yard sale. It was a shot that should have been great but was not (because of the very old/bad camera) that finally spurred me into seeking out a good camera. I read reviews and decided on this one.
Summary: This camera was a common model at Wal-Mart until recently. I picked mine up for $99 on a Valentine's special. I read the walmart.com reviews and felt I should add some points to the other points made by owners. 1. This camera is not bad like some people will say in the reviews. Some people gripe the picture quality is like a cell phone camera. I would say if this camera is taking pictures that bad, then it is a case of USER failure, not CAMERA failure.
