Summary: This is a wonderful camera! It does everything I wanted it to do and so much more. I was very skeptical at first, but found myself very impressed with my wife's research. It has taken some amazing photos for us already and was so easy to use! Her only complaint is that it is larger than the cameras she is used to using. She still loves it and took well over 200 pictures (most using the action setting) at our sons ballgame earlier this week.
Summary: I've been saving up for this camera for quite some time and am overtly pleased with the way it was shipped and packaged to me. It's been easy to figure out all of the buttons and settings without the manual.
