Summary: Started getting the please turn off and back on error when the flash was raised (no more flash). Tried everything, never worked again. To have it serviced cost more than the price I paid for the camera (I checked). I would not recommend this camera.
Pros: Better Pictures than a point and shoot.
Cons: Lasted 1 and 1/2 years and was babied. Used only occasionally, never dropped, no water damage, always put away.
Summary: We bought this camera instead of a dslr since we wanted something light and simple to use. After 9 months of using I would say it takes great outdoor pics-pics of moving kids outside,scenic views. However last night I was trying to take pics of hula dancers on stage, it was indoors and I was 10 feet away from the stage, every single picture turned out blurry. I took about 30 shots, making every kind of mode adjustments - iA, flash, focus, etc.
Summary: Image quality is fair but let down by the screen. Not easy to see in bright light and it's easy to accidentally select another function. 14 mm kit lens is reasonably sharp but the 14-42 zoom could be longer. Overall a fair attempt but the screen is very much a weak point. Not as compact as you think as it still doesn't fit in a pocket.
