Summary: I last owned a Fujifilm fine pix in 2004, then bought a Nikon S9300. I am not a professional and just wanted a great camera for vacations and family photos. I decided on this one after reading the reviews and searching the web. I love this camera. I wanted a camera with fast reaction time.
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: This camera is amazing, you get high quality for a heck of a price. If you are like me and can't afford something super expensive this is route to go. I have taken tons of amazing pictures with this camera and it is very easy to use since it has so many awesome settings.
Summary: I have had this camera 1 year now. It takes some playing around to get familiar with the settings and picture quality but that is to be expected with any camera. Setting it on Auto works great for just about everything. Overall the pictures are great. The speed of starting the camera is very fast.
