Summary: I bought this as a Christmas gift and started playing with it. It takes sharp, accurate pictures, as one expects from most any camera these days. But the zoom! It really is capable of zooming beyond one's capacity to hand hold the shot steady in artificial light. Great stuff.
Summary: I am so happy that I got this camera! I have had a nice near dslr camera for years but I needed a smaller camera for carrying around at our son's wedding and for those times when carrying a big camera is not practical. I have used this at cross country races, and on a hike in the woods and for indoor pictures in low light. I am very happy with the results. The pictures come out beautifully. This was the best deal I could find on this camera and it is a great deal!
Summary: I do like it's 24x zoom but if it comes to a picture quality, my samsung galaxy s3 made better pictures in the same weather conditions than this camera. Perhaps android's software enhances the picture quality and my IPS monitor displays those enhancements very well. It happened so many times that now I use the camera only if I need to use a zoom.
Summary: Bought this one to replace an ageing Samsung which has performed well for a long time. Felt like a new camera. This one fits the bill perfectly with its 24x zoom and its impressive video facility. Have used it for several months now and highly recommend it for its cost and performance.
Summary: I am very pleased with my new camera, even videos taken can be played via the camera, which I couldn't do with my last camera. Only disappointment, the camera went down by £20 the week after I had bought, I nearly brought it back, but as I had started to use the camera & had registered it, I didn't bring it back.
