Summary: Very good camera for beginners with some advanced features found in more expensive cameras. Zoom is very impressive. Learning curve for this camera is very short (even for people who are new to photography and for experienced users no need to read the manual at all).
good camera only thing is that I left the camera ...

Summary: good camera only thing is that I left the camera on while at show so it would be on and ready the zoom error comes on after awhile and it would close the lens and I would have to redo the zoom
Summary: I ordered this camera because I was looking for something compact to take hiking, paddling and to have just a pocket camera. Plus, for grab shots, it isn't practical to carry my dSLR around with me. As we like to paddle kayaks, I'd much rather get this wet than my more expensive camera.
Summary: This is a pretty good little camera. Takes nice sharp pictures. It's really quick so I can use it to take photos of my kids and animals. I'm not crazy about the wide angle lens - sometimes distorts photos around the edges. The zoom is very powerful and I get nice sharp shots with it.
Summary: I needed a lighter, less expensive camera to take on my daughter's field trip so I wouldn't have to lug around the more expensive dslr and lenses around, so this was kind of a last minute, spur of the moment purchase for me. Thank goodness for amazon prime and their two day shipping.
Summary: The pictures this camera takes are phenominal. The problem is the audio when taking a video. The auto-focus mechanisms inside the camera are constantly going and make for a ton of background noise while taking video.
Summary: The pictures are crystal clear, the movies are Hi definition and the sound is very clear, the zoom is awesome for the price, there are cameras costing a lot more with a lot less features then this camera. It's a product with a great name and tradition of quality. I'm very pleased with My new Camera
