but this takes great pictures for me and I get awesome close up ...
30 October 2014
Summary: I'm not a photographer, but this takes great pictures for me and I get awesome close up shots with the zoom. The "autopilot" settings are good for me. To date I've never worried about fine tuning the camera for any particular situation but am confident it could take very accurate pictures in doing...
Summary: I have had this camera for a while, it is good looking and compact. I picked this model because it has a viewfinder which enables me to see what I am shooting in any light condition, as I find the led screens impossible to see outdoors.
Summary: This camera is really great for close up and long distance. I had the same camera but the 110 model and I wanted to upgrade. I got it for a great price, used, just gotta look around. I am very happy with it. The pictures are beautiful.
Summary: I bought this camera strictly for wildlife and scenery photography. I needed a powerful zoom, and this one has that. Also, when I am vacationing, I now just bring this one camera and leave all my lenses at home. For my uses this is a great little camera.

Summary: my experience using the camera at first was a rocky start because of not having a manual to figure out funcions but once I got the hang of it and I started to learn all the funcions it was as great as I hoped it would be and more
Summary: I went from a Konica Minolta Z3 to the P80, then the P100, and this is my second P500. My brother won't let go of his P100, and neither of us is interested in the newest models. GPS data? Who wants this government to know where and when you take your pictures?
Great Performer Initially but died after 1.5 years

Summary: LOVED this camera for the first year and half that I had it. Took lots of amazing photos with it. One day while on vacation photographing a flower it just died. At first I thought maybe it was the battery although I suspected that wasn't the case since the lense wouldn't even retract.
Summary: I know this is a good camera, so I'm sure the problems i experience with it are user error or user misunderstanding... I needed to take quick pictures of whales in Hawaii, and there was too much lag time in between pressing the button.
