Excerpt: I heard many reports about the fast AF system, and how this was replacing some pro's DSLR. So, since I shoot a lot of sports and this was inexpensive relative to a DSLR with similar characteristics, I decided to try it. There is no way a professional sports photog would use this.

Excerpt: Was this review helpful? |
Cons: LENS THAT CAME WITH THE KIT IS NOT VERY USEFUL. SHOULD HAVE SOMETHING INBETWEEN WHAT CAME IN THE KIT AND THE 2ND ZOOM THAT WAS RECOMMENDED TO ME. THE VIDEO BUTTON IS TOO SMALL AND THE 4 WAY ROCKER SWITCH IS TOO CLOSE TO WHERE YOUR HAND IS ON THE CAMERA. IT KEEPS DISPLAYING / CHANGING THE SET UP T...
Summary: This is a nice little package. I was mainly attracted to it because of the SD card and the extra battery. However, the extra battery smells LITERALLY like burnt wood. I can no longer keep it in the camera pack as it makes all the other equipment smell the same.
Excerpt: There is a lot of things I did not like about this camera. First I was surprised at how many good reviews this camera has gotten. I imagine the sensor is what's the best about it. Unfortunately the rest of the camera doesn't fit the bill.
Excerpt: While I enjoy the form factor and the feature set, I would only trust it to take pictures of indoor pets. Every time I take it to the river to take pictures of the sunset the LCD screen blanks out when the camera is turned sideways, aka portrait orientation.

I can literally make better photos with my Xperia smart phone.
They sent me a non-English camera that could not be changed.

Summary: This camera is great if you order it without the kit lens. If you get the kit lens, you're receiving stuff in separate bags with no seals on or between the items. This is mind-boggling and means that the lens and camera are somewhat open to the air and might have tiny bits of dust or packing...
