Summary: I bought this to replace the Canon I've been using for the past few years. I had no occasion to use it the first 30 days, but recently started using it last month on vacation. Purchased it in May 2012. The green paint started chipping off. The shutter sticks closed when you turn it on. The shutter sticks open when you turn it off. It does take good photos-when it works properly.
Summary: I bought this camera because it looks great on the pic they have here at amazon, and the reviews weren't all bad. As soon as I started playing with the camera it froze. The pictures I had taken are not of good resolution and the video just allows me to take it for 15 seconds. I wouldn't recomend this camera at all.
