Summary: After reading the review I wonder whether I had a rogue camera. I was so disappointed with it that I took it back to the retailer and got my money back. The picture quality was noticeably worse than a similarly priced Canon. The response to the shutter button was sometimes non-existent and even when it did respond, the delay was significant.
Pros: Excellent zoom, remote viewfinder via smart phone or iPod, pop-up flash, hi-res screen
Cons: very slow response to shutter button and zoom controls, faulty playback, poor picture quality
