Takes great pictures, but the zoom leaves much to be desired

Summary: I got this camera as a birthday gift, and was very excited to see that it advertises a serious zoom! But, upon actually trying to use the zoom- literally, right as I try to zoom even a fraction- it immediately becomes a blur.
Summary: Camera itself is fine and takes pictures according to my expectatations. However i was disappointed by the following shortcomings: 1) No owner's manual included (this is a normally supplied for all all technical purchases).
Summary: I purchased this camera taking product pictures to be used on eBay. Its a good camera for the price. My only complaints about it is that the SD card slot is in the battery compartment underneath the camera and if you use a tripod you have to remove the tripod mount to get at the SD card.
Summary: This takes good pics it is a good starter camera, wish the resolution was higher but I guess that comes with more pixels. Probably will just be our everyday camera nothing to fancy. Very tiny tripod about 4 inches tall.
Okay camera, good zoom but a bit bulky for everyday use

Summary: This camera feels a it cheap but then I suppose it is low cost. The zoom range is extremely good but at full length you really need a tripod or a suitable wall or fence to lean the camera on. Shutter response is average at best, I've missed quite a few wildlife shots because of the lag.
Summary: I bought this to replace my Finepix S7000 which has served me very well since it was bought in 2005 but was beginning to play up a bit and I was worried about it failing completely on me -I use my camera for work and rely heavily on it.
Summary: I have been looking for a reasonable quality entry camera to replace Canon AE1 I had for so long. Fancied an easier or lazier style this time, all in one zoom, with eye view-finder and screen. All rather pricey until this came along.
Summary: Have lost previous camera (same make, older model), with which I was very happy. Decided to go for same make, newer model. First impression is that camera is less solid than older model. Batteries provided were flat (not rechargeable ones), put new ones in and took about 10 test pictures.
