Summary: I bought this as a replacement for my Kodak V570 ultra-wide lens camera after the lens on that one jammed. I use it for routine photographs on real estate inspections and valuations and it is more than adequate. The images are not as sharp as the Kodak, and I wish there was more control over the speed and aperture (hence the 4 stars), but it is a good choice for anyone needing an ultra-wide point and shoot.
Summary: The charging port began to wiggle in the socket after only a few dozen charges and then it stopped charging all together. While it worked the image quality was decent and the controls pretty good but it only lasted for a very short while.
Summary: Just got back from an Alaska fishing trip. This camera did a great job. The 10x zoom is great and the anti-shake program seems to be excellent. It is a little bigger than some point and shoot cameras, but still fits in my pocket. Battery life seems to be quite good. The lcd screen was easy to see in outdoor lighting.
Summary: This is a fairly nice camera & takes pretty nice pictures. The only real issue I have it that it has to be connected to the wall or computer to charge. The charge cable does not always appear to work properly - touchy.
Summary: I bought this camera because I need a point and shoot camera with a great zoom. I like it because it is powerful and fast, a little bulky though, bigger than my last point and shoot. It compares very well, I thought it was a steal!
