Summary: excellent pics outside and indoor pics. good automatic adjustment settings. wish there was a way to take lens cap off. excellent piece especially for taking ebay pics. video quality indoor and outdoor also very good.
Summary: I bought this for my wife that is a teacher. She uses it for school activities. The quality of pictures are incredible. I would compare them to my $3000 professional camera. It is a great buy. Only drawback is no viewfinder. Your only view is from the display screen, but it is still quite viable in bright sunlight.
You'll like this camera if this is the sort of camera you are looking for

Summary: About me: I'm a pro photographer and I wanted a knocking around camera that met several requirements. First, I wanted a camera that was relatively small. Second, I wanted one that's relatively lightweight. Third, I wanted one that was very "point and shoot." Fourth, I wanted quite a bit of zoom range, not 5x or even 10x, but much more. Fifth, I wanted a camera capable of taking very good photos. Finally, I wanted one that was cheap. My work camera is a Nikon D600.
