Excerpt: I owned this camera for 2 years, and took less than 2 thousand photos with it. It wasn't fun, there was not enough control, and not enough quality. Good for travel, when you want snapshots, and don't expect miracles. Very nice zoom range and tempting constant f/2.8 aperture in whole range.
Summary: The camera works wonderfully and I am very happy with it. One of the best cameras I have ever owned. I purchased a separate bundle from this same company and had many problems with them. Had I known what I know now, I would have purchased the camera elsewhere.
Excerpt: I take a lot of scenic pictures while I'm out hiking. This camera is good for that because it's easy to operate and it works fairly quickly. Am having a little trouble figuring out the zoom part of it, and there is a small bubble crack in the lens.
Excerpt: I just started using it seems to be pretty easy I'm having a little trouble figuring out how to focus but I'm sure once I working a little bit I should probably have a little better luck a rate and see if like it's a pretty good camera doyennes Astarte I'll tell you about it how you about what it...
Cons: TAKE NOTE: No reviews mention this anywhere but it will NOT take RAW pictures in full auto mode. You are limited to JPEG. Extremely disappointed by this, a huge step back from my previous Panasonic camera
Summary: My wife bought me this camera recently so I thought I'd share my opinion. This is a very nice superzoom camera but like all of them, the critical element, the sensor, determines just how good the images will be. This camera uses a smallish sensor which has a good bit of noise even at base ISO 100.
Summary: Impressive machine, but I'm still working on mastering its complex, nonintuitive (compared to more standard DSLR) interface. Were it not for online third-party instructions, I'd consider returning for refund.
