Summary: I wanted a digital camera with a view finder. I often have trouble seeing the display screen on other digital cameras, and also, my hands are sometimes shakey. I wanted something I could brace against my face to steady the image. Downside is that the camera is much bulkier that a small digital or a cell phone. I'm a bit disappointed with the color fidelity, but I get that with most digitals also. Perhaps there are filters I could get that would help.
Summary: It is a good camera for started in the professional photography . It is an excellent camera for a walk or tourism and obtain images impossible for a compact camera. Settings are as in a reflex camera and the Viewfinder gives you an added value. The battery does not support the 240 pictures, this can be solved by buying a backup, it can be recharged in the car while traveling. For me it is an excellent camera, comfortable of transporter and makes wonderful photos.

I do not know why all the bad reviews on this camera. I would absolutely recommend this camera! There are so many things I still do not know about it but I am learning every time I use it.

I use the macro setting most of the time. I also use a tripod and indoor lighting. You have to play around with the camera's different settings to find what will work for you and your needs.
Summary: Love this little camera, takes great pictures very clear video's and I feel worth more than the sticker price its a bridge camera so it's small and not a full DSLR but still worth it for a novice like me.
Summary: The seller at Amazon from whom I bought this camera (PriceFrog) said it was used so sold it at a giveaway price ($45). Boy, when I opened this camera, I did not see any sign of it being used. The camera shoots fine, has lots of settings, and is very wonderful. The zoom is great. Thanks to another buyer for his review, I bought a generic Casio NP-40 Li-Ion Replacement Digital Camera Battery from Batteries.com sold by Goodios here at Amazon and the battery was a perfect...
