Summary: I bought this camera some time ago. I have always been interested in photography but I didn't want to spend too much in a camera since I'm a beginner. I started looking over the web to try to find a good camera with a nice quality/performance/price relation. Coincidentally, this camera appeared in one of the pages where I use to buy my stuff.
Summary: This originally retailed for 699 I believe from Fry's. The camera quality is good (not as well as I wanted) but for those who just want nice photos, nothing professional, everyday use, this is a great camera.
Excerpt: Bought one of these cameras in Dec 2013 for £150 ($220) from a major retailer. For the price it's a proverbial cracker. I bought it as my girlfriend was having issues with my Canon DSLR and I wanted something small and light for weekend trips. Really good quality photos in good and low light using the 'kit' 20-50mm lens.
Summary: We love the camera and all of the options that come with it but the charger is defective. We don't want to return the entire camera and all of the components because everything works except the charger. Please let us return this one item!! This is a great camera and we do not feel we should be penalized for receiving defective merchandise!
