Summary: So I'm a 17 year old girl and my mother is big into photography, she has one of those huge cameras with the interchangeable lenses. Compared to her intense camera, this camera is fabulous considering that it doesn't have special lenses. It's very easy to use and the pictures come out beautifully. The only thing I'd say I wish was better is the color of the pictures. I wish they were a little more true to the actual surrounds.
Summary: It is a very nice camera, light weight, takes excellent pictures and has great features. The only thing I dislike; it often displays a message to turn off the camera and turn it on again when first turned on, which it automatically does, but it is kind of annoying and takes time.
Summary: This camera is good for the beginning photographer. It is light and very simply. The zoom is great. In rapid/burst shoot the pictures come out clear. I had cameras before with rapid shoot they come out blurry. Getting some great photos of my child playing soccer. The videos come out clear and a distance from the videoed object it still picks up the audio. I would recommend the camera and for the price it is worth it.
Summary: Excellent value. At the time I bought the camera, case, SD card and batteries and charger total price was only £122. At the time of writing this review it is £159 and I wonder if it would be now best to save up the additional £110 and get the 60 zoom model. But this one works well. Zoom itself is pretty good and photos sharp.
Summary: The Camera performs very well and was able to do things that my previous camera could not. However when I switch the Camera on it has the annoying action of NOT switching on properly if the lens cap is in place. The system forces me to switch of and try again with the cap off. This is most annoying as, if I am in a hurry to take a picture the opportunity is missed and the split second of timing means I miss a good picture.
Summary: A very nice camera that takes excellent pictures for a budget priced item. Easy to use. Just one complaint the position of the thumb rest is so close to all the other controls that, if you have fat thumbs like I have, you end up turning all sorts of controls on when you don't want them, especially the flash, whereon the camera insists you open the flash cover before you can carry on.
