Summary: I left on vacation and forgot my DSLR...it's sitting by the door. Purchased this and had it overnighted to my location. This is a great little camera. I was surprised at the quality of pictures from close ups to distance shots. I thought I would need the tripod for the distance shots I wanted, but found image stability worked well. Tripod is needed with additional zoom lens for best shots.
Summary: This is a superb camera for amateur dad's, mom's and all others looking to meet their growing photography needs with a single camera. The product package is very good and it was packaged as advertised with the camera working well. This camera produces professional results for most family occasions and gatherings and does acceptably well in low light and night hand held photos as well.

Summary: It is by meeting and exeeding all my expectations, and surprises me on how easy it is to use and how well it works. I am just an amateur, but I have tested Canon and Nikon in the same class, and the one thing that stands out with this camera is the quality of pictures and the true colors that are captured in the photos. It is beyond what Nikon or Canon offer in the same class.
Excerpt: I use this camera when I do not feel like carrying a lot of gear. It is always nearby to capture a quick photo if the opportunity arrises. This not a novice camera and even the most discerning enthusiast would love this camera. I really like the shoot through glass mode and use to photograph birds outside of my study window. My only complaint is that it is not that great in low light conditions.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD
Excerpt: I use this camera for general photography pictures and find the f/2.8 aperture across the board really cool. The camera is not perfect, but for the money in todays market its priced right when on sale... This is a lazy person's camera when considering one grew up using Minolta XE7's of an earlier era... Like most products today its all plastic... so its light. Great camera worthy of taking it on vacation...
Pros: Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time
