Summary: WHAT COMES INSIDE THE BOX: - the camera body with fixed lens - lens protector or cap (which have to be removed manually to take pics) - Manual (very usefull it is a must read) and CD with bloatware (i will never install any program just for upload my photos to facebook... never! its just my opinion) - and a neck strap (this one is actually very sturdy) EXTERIOR: Ok let start this review saying that this camera feels, weight as much, and looks like a DSLR even my friends...
Summary: Still just learning this camera but continued to be amazed at the functionality and features. More than I truly understand at this point. But I do know that the best thing I can say about this camera is it does take great pictures. While I know some more discerning and more experienced users my not agree but to my eye when I have the camera set correctly, the resulting pictures are much better than what I was getting with my old point and shoot.
Summary: I bought this camera last June. Very happy with all the features (Picture quality, ease of use, zoom, battery life, low light photos, etc.) Two weeks ago it was stolen, so once I was sure it was gone, I ordered a replacement, exact same model. This time I'm writing down the serial number.
Summary: I purchased after seeing good reviews and it was reasonably priced. I am very happy with it. I'm not an expert with a camera and this camera does such a nice job on the automatic function. Wonderful closeups and the 40x zoom is super. Excellent value.
Summary: I'm not a professional photographer, but love photographing. I better camera with powerful zoom and viewfinder, but couldn't afford an expensive one. This camera is fantastic for the price. The zoom is wow! Shoots fast, the effects are really good, and it gives me option to customize my photos. The battery life is not bad at all, but I advise to carry batteries with you, if you are planning to take many photos.
