Summary: Bought in late 5/2015 - having problem with the control wheel already. It would not turn smoothly and does get stuck.

Summary: This camera is awesome. The reason I'm giving it 4 stars though is because it doesn't have a view finder on it. This camera isn't meant for hardcore photographers but it does come close to being one but that's expected giving the price it's at.
Summary: I mostly love this camera; however, I always have difficulties transferring the files to the computer. The USB doesn't work and the wi fi works most of the time but is very slow and skips files sometimes.
Excerpt: I wanted to buy this camera before taking a vacation, and I'm very happy with the purchase. It didn't take long to figure out and adjust to, and it was my first real digital camera purchase. The focus and clarity is great, and it's compact enough to fit in a small case in my purse.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact

The only complaint I have is the lens cap, which is small and is not attached to the camera in any way which makes it easy to lose.
