Summary: The 24x zoom is amazing for a camera this size and I've taken some amazingly sharp photos. But just so SLOW! The UI is slow, turning the exposure down takes more than 10 seconds! Focusing (which usually fails) takes forever.
Summary: Disappointed, very disappointed. I bought this camera after MUCH research considering price, pixels, zoom and other things. I needed another camera because my older camera which was a Kodak easy share, which I loved in every way, was missing two things.
Summary: I specifically searched Amazon for Wi-Fi cameras. The description below is a little misleading. We go this camera and there is NO wi-fi. You have to buy a wi-fi SD card to use it for wifi, Which you can do with any other camera. This is NOT a wi-fi camera! Repeat NO wifi !!!
Summary: I'm a daily camera user, and I got this on special to replace a Canon camera with similar specs because the Canon's flash no longer works. Unfortunately, 3 months later, I'm back to using the Canon more often than this camera. Now, the SZ-12 does do decently outside, both in daytime and at night.
