Summary: This camera has held up very well! I haven't been rough with it, but I took it on a 6 week backpacking trip--it still works like new. I would bet it again--it was a great camera for the price. Eventually, it seemed like some condensation got into the lens because pictures aren't as clear.
Summary: This review is written NOT by a professional photographer, just by someone who wants to be able to capture fun moments of a 2 y.o. who is constantly on the move. My cell-phone camera cannot keep up with him, and I missed too many great shots.
Summary: I hate this camera. It takes about 2 seconds from the time you push the button for a picture to take. It has caused me to miss a lot of good moments. Others I have asked to take family pics have the same problem. You're better off using your phone.
Summary: Started out pleased with camera. In fact, bought a second one soon after the first. Then the clouds appeared. On the LCD display a single black dot appeared, and then spread and multiplied fairly quickly. Both cameras now have 4 patches of black "fuzz" on the lcd screen, each about 0.25" across.
Summary: I got this camera because it has 14 mp and the price was good. I have not used it much and turned it on the other day and noticed some of the pixels on the screen had burn out. this really speaks a lot about the product. I would not recommend this product to anyone.
Incredible picture quality, but more complex than I had hoped

Summary: This camera is a nerd's dream. Also, a dedicated amateur's dream. It's a bit more complicated that I wanted to deal with, but the quality of photos is stunning. Forget about their proprietary picture photoshop wannabe...
Summary: This is a nice reliable camera for taking snapshots. There are many features that I simply haven't used in the two years that I've had it. I wish the zoom was more powerful for distant shooting but it's adequate for most situations. The battery life is amazing.
