Pros: Love the camera; plenty of default settings, 5x optical zoom with the option to turn off digital zoom.
Cons: Not really a con for me but may be to others, mine does not save the time and date settings. I don't have them appear on the images and videos so it's not really a problem, not sure if it is just mine or if others have had the same problem.
Summary: For the price we paid, the camera is what we expected. Good pictures, easy to work with, and better than our last HP camera at less the cost.There are some features we haven't even started to use yet, so I'm sure we can take pictures in almost any situation.
