Summary: It took some getting used to after being accustomed to looking through a view finder, and no longer having the option. Completely satisfied with the quality of the shots, even though multiple frames are often required to get just the right one. Probably not the camera to use for action photos or 'must have' events such as weddings until completely familiar with the focusing.
Summary: I purchased the L810 August 2012 (about 1 year ago), so I've had quite a bit of time to try it out. This was my first upgrade camera from using basic ~$100 Nikon models like the P60 and L28 (although my very first was a Kodak easy share). Pros: ~I chose the camera in Blue. The color is rich and I haven't had any major issues with it chipping. ~My cameras come with me everywhere, so it's been through a lot and is holding up pretty well.
Best camera you're going to get in this price range

Summary: This is a fantastic camera for the money if you take a lot of stills. If you take a lot of actions shots, like kids in sports, etc.....don't get it. It's focus time and shutter speed are just too slow for action. Some of the other reviews saying all the pictures turned out blurry make me suspect they did not download the CD that came with it titled "Reference Manual".
