Summary: I love this camera. I thought this for my wife as a wedding present. We took it to Yellowstone national park and Grand Teton national park. Its sweet. Only problem is that after 6 months it'll take a pic and shut off.
Summary: Read the reviews. Don't think that "this won't happen to me". This is a defective camera body that the manufacture is trying to dump. The mode dial is defective. Doesn't matter how many accessories that they try to throw in, if the camera body is defective the camera is useless. Putting glue on the dial to solve the problem is not a solution. Buy something that is quality!!!!!!
Summary: I love this camera. I know this is far from the league of a dslr (I do have a nikon dslr) but I'm using this as my walk around camera. One good thing is I can even use the pop-up flash to trigger a remote flash. And I am very happy that have taken some good shots with this camera using that set-up.
