Summary: Just buy it! I always used to buy Canon but after going through 3 Canon cameras in 2 years, I decided to go another direction. I love this camera soooo much! I take it everywhere and it takes beautiful pictures and high quality videos. My favorite feature is the zoom. I went up to a small lake last week with my family and was able to take quality, close up pictures of my kids from across the lake! Definitely worth the money.
Summary: It is unbelievable how well designed this camera is. I just love the menu layout and the long zoom. Probably will be the last camera for my developing photography hobby that I will need for many years. I shoot video with it as well.
Summary: I'm impressed with it, especially considering the price. Pros: 1. VERY impressive zoom 2. High-quality pictures/videos 3. Easy to use Cons: 1. Runs on AA batteries, which are included with the product, but they are not rechargeable 2.You can't look directly through the lens; you have to use the screen instead.
Summary: My camera arrived in pristine condition within days of my placing the order. Although I haven't used it yet--it's really a gift and I am waiting for the special occasion to arrive--I am sure it will be a big hit. Thank you for a speedy delivery.
Summary: Love this camera to pieces and carry it every where with me. I was a little hesitant about upgrading beyond my point-and-shoot, which took good photos, because of the size. Well, I got a case for this, and a bigger purse! problem solved. The magic settings are a laugh, I didn't know about them until I had the camera and was playing with it. I love the zoom, I can photograph birds now.
Summary: I'm an avid amateur photographer with a strong inclination for digital photography as well as HDR photography. How much do I like this camera? This is my third one. Sad story but I set my first one on top of the roof of my Jeep before heading off into the sunset. MY second one was as fantastic as the first. I loved it so much that I gave it to my niece. Now I'm on my third one and I still love the thing.
