Summary: Having used advanced model SLR cameras for more than twenty years, I was finally dragged kicking and screaming into the world of digital photography. Surprise! The model S4500 has made the transition practically painless.
Summary: This camera has everything I need for taking 200 to 400 pictures a week as part of my work. I love the 24mm wide angle lens and the 30X zoom. The pictures process quickly with little lag time between shots. Panarama is fun and easy to use.
Summary: This camera is just amazing - so many features. Auto everything and it allows real close up photography (macro and super macro). Cameras costing twice this much might have a macro photography feature - this has TWO.
Summary: My 9 year old daughter bought this with her birthday money. It is a really nice point and shoot and makes her feel like a real photographer as its body is shaped similarly to a DSLR. The lens does not come off (which I knew already).
Summary: I just received this camera today and am totally amazed at it. What kind of camera of this type could you expect to get for only $150? I didn't think it would be any good but it is really fabulous. Setting up the camera for initial use was very quick and easy.
