Summary: I did a lot of research before buying this and have not been disappointed. Excellent picture quality and impressive zoom for the price. It is also built well. Have had this for about 4 or 5 years and even after being banged around a bit it's still taking great pictures.
Summary: This is the second one of these I have purchased. I had mine for about 3 years, and I just bought another one for my daughter. She takes nature photos, and everyone that sees her pictures asks her what kind of camera she has.
When you need a camera it should have ease of operation...

Summary: I have found this camera to be one that takes a great photo...and if used frequently, and if you read the book that came with it, you can be happy with it; I use two or three different cameras and find this one to be the most complicated of them all.
Summary: I have a Canon compact camera with a 3x zoom and I wanted to get another one with a better zoom to get closer pictures of nature. I bought a used SP-600UZ for a third of the price and I am very satisfied with my purchase.
