Summary: Great camera, but no paper manual, yes available online, but would be nice to have small handy printed copy. Good on batteries too bad they had to have a rechargeable that has to be taken out each cycle, while it comes with a usb cord that would have 5volts available to charge and take out pictures at the same time, other models do it, I overlooked that feature thinking a rechargeable would certainly be within the camera, not.
Summary: It is a good camera for the price. It is light weight, takes nice photos etc However, it does not zoom in when recording movies and that is a real down side for me. Aside from that I am happy enough with it.
