Summary: For the amount we spent on this camera, and am completely satisfied with it. I wish it had a faster shutter speed, but other than that I have no major complaints. I will be upgrading soon, but for my first digital camera, it has been perfect.
Summary: There is a bit of a learning curve. The manual is on CD which is not a problem for me. After working with it for about an hour you will be taking 90% great pictures. Have not had it long enough to rate durability. Batteries do not seem to run down too quick. I'm taking 3 MP photos for work and they look great. 14 megapixel photos should be good enough to blow up to poster size or bigger.

Summary: This particular camera is your basic bridge camera the photos come out clear but also has a high dynamic range function to bring out those dark photos. For 14 mega pixels and all the options, the zoom is not that great so in a sense for a budget camera it is well worth the money. I also use a tripod that I bought separately. The camera is compact has a good bright flash for dark photos it comes with 1. 5 volt alkaline batteries. However, I use rechargeable batteries.
Summary: I am extremely pleased with the ease of use, features, and picture quality I have on this camera. It was sold as a pre-owned, but, the seller took such good care of it you would never know. I know you need to read all the information, and was pleased that this camera came with the strap, lens cap, instruction video, and manual. Very Happy!
Excerpt: I bought this camera to replace my old nikon coolpix l20. It is an amazing camera. The number of megapixels(14) is high enough that you don't lose any resolution when you need to make enlargements. The pictures are very clear, and you can adjust the resolution on the camera. I always shoot on the highest setting. I would like to note that the picture that I am seeing on viewpoints in incorrect. The actual camera is black and resembles a dslr, although it is not.
Excerpt: The pics for this digital camera are quite clear and sharp! I do find myself having to learn how to focus it and use all the features towards its full capacity, etc. however, I have thus far gotten some really good/clear shots from this camera. Over all I am very pleased with this camera and its use for me as an amateur photographer on the way up to hopefully becoming one of the great ones smiles Dont get me wrong as this may not be the best camera out there but...
Excerpt: My husband and I had used a simple point and shoot digital camera for years, but when we discovered that our third child was on the way, we decided to upgrade to a better camera that could take higher quality pictures. We wanted to be able to preserve more of our family's memories. We started researching cameras, which was really overwhelming.
Excerpt: I had been using the same camera for about five years, and was hesitant to replace it because it still worked, and took okay pictures. My wife wanted a new camera, and since we were expecting our 3rd child, we decided to go ahead and buy one. My brother in law had a very nice DSLR that he let us borrow to try out. It took nice pictures, but had so many bells and whistles that made it a little hard to use.
