Summary: I was excited to get this camera and get to taking pictures. I have only had this camera for approx. 3 months, I have only used this camera maybe 3 times it stopped working the zoom won't come out.
Summary: Even though it is *last years* model I am pleasantly surprised with my first few uses. Color quality is exceptional and it is extremely easy to use in auto mode (haven't had a lot of time to try all the features). My first shoot was in the mountains where I live.
Summary: So far this camera has exceeded my expectations. I first used it while sailing on a schooner in Gloucester MA and was amazed at the clarity of the pictures including full zoom. It took a few attempts to get the panorama function to work correctly, but once I figured it out it worked great.
Summary: Camera takes food pictures and people/animal pictures pretty much as good as the $700 camera I'd borrowed to use. Much more budget friendly, came with all the basics I need - rechargeable batteries (4) and charger, 16 GB?
Summary: The video mode is horrible beyond belief. It continually struggles to focus. The focus is totally unreliable. Maybe if you keep it focused on one object it might be able to focus on it and remain in focus. If you use the zoom you may as well forget about it.
Summary: I got this package for myself for an early birthday present, as my patience with point & shoot cameras has run out due to shaky and lower-quality photos. Everything listed was included, so I feel I got an excellent deal.
Summary: I love the camera. Everything else has been great except that the charger for the batteries does not work. One light never comes on, and the other never goes off. No way to tell if the batteries are charged. I could not find a link to contact the company to have this replaced.
