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.
