Summary: Bought this for my wife for christmas as our 1 year old was starting to walk. Those are some of the most important moments for us to capture. This camera has been an awesome upgrade form the cannon g12.
Summary: The Camera does ok "out of the box" except the software on it can get confused and get stuck in a state where it is inoperable and neither on nor off. The only way out of that problem is to take the battery out and put it back in again. It can also get stuck in a "zoomed in" mode on the viewfinder.
Summary: great little camera. i own a Canon t3i and a Oly PM-2. the xz-2 makes a great companion. sharp contrasty f1.8 lens lets you keep ISOs low. ND filter, good zoom range. filters and effects galore. good software. good but basic RAW adjustments. very versatile camera. descent video with focus tracking.
Summary: Sure you can buy much better cameras out there. For much more $$$$. For $200 this camera is absolutely a STEAL. I took it on a trip to South America as my ONLY camera and could not have been happier with the results.
Summary: I bought this camera to carry around in my bag everyday hoping to take more photos since I rarely take my dslr with me. Overall a very nice camera. Great build quality, performance and handling.
Summary: No longer state of the art, hence available at bargain prices. Perfectly adequate little point-and-shoot for serious photographers who want something small to carry around for unexpected photo-ops and who, like me, don't have a phone with good photo features.
Summary: The reviews about poor focus in low light were right on. However, it does take great pictures otherwise. Will take me a long time to figure out all the bells and whistles. I was really glad to get it at an amazing discount, as I don't think it is worth the original price.
