Summary: This past Christmas, I purchased this camera for my daughter who is a bit of an amatuer photographer. At the least, she loves taking lots of pictures. She was wanting an SLR, but the budget only allowed for this camera. Since then, she has absolutely fallen in love with this camera.

Summary: Start using the different Mode Settings & You will soon LOVE this camera. I've owned & used this camera for 6 months. Once I started experimenting with the different modes, I was sold. I use this camera for business and travel.

Pros: Exceptional value....fun to use, good looking camera. This is a lot more camera than I was expecting. I love the zoom function...one of the things that kept me from moving over to a digital set up was the lack of zoom abilities in earlier models ( unless you wanted to sell one of your kids to buy...
Cons: Haven't found any yet but I've read other reviews by more experienced photographers and I guess there are some limitations in certain modes but so far I haven't had anything I didn't like about this camera.
