Excerpt: Got for Christmas. This camera is awesome. Makes almost as good a pictures as my aunts 1200.00 dslr. Still haven't figured out all the modes just been using the auto mode. Love it I would recommend to anyone not wanting to drop serious $ on a dslr.
Excerpt: i was amazed at the price,so i bought it, then when i recieved the camera and saw that it was assembled in China i was extremely dubious as every other thing that i have bought that was made in China has failed within weeks but after using it for a lot more than two weeks i am pleasantly surprised and very pleased with the purchase, this camera is certainly not a point and shoot and is quite complex and can give amazing results.
Pros: Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD
Excerpt: This small camera body is great to carry with me all the time. My bigger Nikon equipment is in my bag in the car as I am driving, but this camera is on my lap! The brochure that comes with it doesn't explain use well enough, so be sure to put the CD in your computer and read that very informative usage information. As a professional photographer I am looking forward to shooting weddings with this.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Great Photo Battery Life, Nice Body Color, Small / Compact
Excerpt: Camera has so many more features than I realized. Perfect balance between zoom and close-up photography. Features are easily accessible. Have to get used to opening flash and sometimes it doesn't seem quite strong enough, but need to do more testing. Love the fast shutter speed. Love the adjustable LCD.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Short Lag Time
Excerpt: Full featured camera at a great price. Ultra high speed video works well only with strong lighting. Small sensor leads to graininess with higher ISO's. HDR mode works well. With the combination of the f2.8 aperture throughtout the zoom range and image stabilization, a blurry shot is rare (although graininess is its worst con). Battery life is very good.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Short Lag Time
