Summary: This is a great camera. I used it immediately after I received it and could understand things about it right away. The picture quality is much much better than my lit'l ol' cheap digital so I am very impressed. It fits so well in my hands and is much more easy to handle to focus and shot, unlike the lit'l ol' cheap rectangular ones. Definitely will get a lot of use out of it.
Summary: I love this camera for my first high quality shot instrament. This camera is easy to use, has great visual quality, and NO PRE-PROGRAMMED SOFTWARE, by htis I mean that you plug-n-play with what ever software you run on your computer.Great shots and fast apeture/shutter speed. You will love this camera nd the cost is crazy for wht you get. By the way this is my 5th digital camera at 40 yearsold so I do have little experience too. Thank you and I hope this helps!
