Pros: Amazing camera, I purchased this camera to start learning how to take great pictures and get into the camera scene. I am learning daily at the amazing things this camera can do and have no regrets.
Cons: Not that this is on the camera, but the seller marked up the price to 799.99$ then had it on sale for 459.99$. After the sale ended the price went to 499.99$ with no type of sale. Great marketing to bring in poor people looking to get a great deal.
Summary: I recomment this camera to anyone who needs a high quality point and shoot camera. I really like it because not only can I use it as a point and shoot on full automatic right now, but later as I learn more about photography I can use it in manual mode.
Summary: I am a digital camera newbie. I've had my camera for about a year (shame on me), and have only used it for point and shoot. I finally decided I should learn to use it, so I purchased this book.
Summary: I'm a novice but have thoroughly enjoyed using the camera/accessories. I did a lot of reseach at the time of purchase in 2012 and have been very happy with the quality, ease of use with the interface. I haven't had any concerns or issues.
