Summary: Very good features for the price, very poor UI to operate. My wife is always getting lost with the features and gets stuck and has a hard time getting the camera back to normal operation (the reset function doesn't really do that) you have to turn the camera off and back on. I printed out the instructions which are lengthly but there is no index - a pet peeve of mine.
Summary: This camera is a great buy! You can take great pictures right out of the box. I love that it has a rechargeable battery!! This camera feels very comfortable in your hand when in use too. It also has some really neat features and a fantastic zoom. I haven't taken the time to learn everything the camera can do or load the enclosed CD to see how all the features work, but I am anxious to do so. I want to get the most out of this digital camera.
Summary: I wanted to upgrade my camera without gong to fancy. This camera has lots of tricks up it's sleeves. Very easy to use and takes great pictures. Not a bad deal for the price I paid. I downloaded the user's guide because it's easier for me that way. Once I learned what the icons were and how to navigate, it's a breeze.
Summary: I agree with others, the down loading of the manual is not the best idea. But, this camera does a great job for an amateur photographer. I use these pictures online and they look great. I am also not crazy about their editing program, but that is no big deal because I have ones that I like. Everyone is surprised at the price of this camera and the good pictures it takes. I will move up through this brand when I buy my next camera.
