Its okay, nothing special to it, It takes decent pics
3 September 2013
Summary: This is an okay camera, consider it being an older model, old firmware has nothing special to offer. Uses AA batteries so enjoy spending money on that. Over all It does take pictures and that's all I expected from it ._.
Summary: The zoom facility on the camers became extremely stiff and difficult to control after 5 days. It currently does this but occasionally it frees itself and becomes looser and easier to control. This is a very annoying thing. Otherwise the camera is fine.
Summary: Bought this to replace similar fuji camera. Have been wowed by panasonic compact digitals and hoped this would also be a good buy. The zoom is not as good as fuji and there is no viewfinder. Tried it out on a trip to India and came home disappointed with pictures. Maybe this camera takes some getting used to and I will persevere maybe trying it in less extreme light conditions...I want it to be a worthwhile purchase.
Summary: As everyone has already said, this is a good buy compared to extra 4k that you need to shell out for a Nikon or Canon bridge camera having better zoom and shutter speed. Nice feel and Grip. Lyca lense ensuring crisp and sharper image but shake correction is very bad. You have to hold it very still to get a clear image. Low light flash photography is extremely good. The TFT screen resolution is poor and will give a false impression on quality of image clicked.
