Summary: Good camera but too big for my needs. Also, I don't like having to buy expensive batteries for it. I "downgraded" to a waterproof Lumix that fits in my pocket and has a rechargeable battery and, for me at least, there is no difference in the quality of pictures but it's much more convenient to use...
Summary: Don't let the SLR look of it fool you to think it's an interchangeable lens camera! As a noob in the photography industry I thought that this was going to be the best camera ever! lol I was wrong! although I cannot complain. This camera is way too much for the things that it does!
Summary: This camera has a lot of features and takes very good close ups. The auto focus works well except when zooming and especially when zooming in the video mode. Portraits are also very rich with good color and contrast, even in the auto mode. Battery life seems to be fair.
Summary: This camera is amazing for the price. I've had issues with the camera focusing correctly sometimes. It usually has to due with the auto focus. If you change the lighting it normally fixes it. But beyond that, this camera takes amazing pictures.
Summary: I have bought this Camera because I love photography and started with the regular automatic small cameras, but wanted something else. This camera is awesome and featured with a lot of different options to have the best of your pictures.
Summary: Although I do a considerable amount of commercial work (or perhaps because I do!), when I'm out for the day with family or traveling, I want a camera that takes decent stills and video, has good zoom, a reasonably small form factor, and "just-take-the-shot" performance features.
