Summary: While I do have a fancier digital camera with a beefier telephoto lens, this almost always is in a trousers or shirt pocket. It is light, takes sharp pix and its 10X optical zoom handles 80% of what I'd like. There are some times when I'd want a closer shot of a bird in a tree, but those are rare.The self-adjusting macro allows for fine nature/plant shots. It is sturdy yet light to carry. This is my daily camera.
Excerpt: This camera was actually given to me from a friend as a gift, because I was complaining about wanting another digital camera for casual and random events. Now I’m not the best photographer out there, but I can say that I take some pretty nice pictures that my family and friends are proud of.
Summary: I like this version so much better than the newer one - My mom had this one and I loved hers, but could only find the newer version in stores. :( So glad I found this older version here on amazon - Have never had a better camera!
Summary: I love this camera so much I hardly use my older models. Only complaint is no View finder. Photos are more difficult to view in bright sunlight. However, shots still look great and have an exceptional quality in color and clarity.
Summary: I had bought this camera Black Friday of 2011, and i absolutely loved it. When it broke i was devastated. I bought other cameras but i just wasn't impressed. When i saw this on amazon for the awesome price, i couldn't pass it up. I'm just as in love as i was before.
Summary: Got the camera and was everything I expected and more, it also came a day earlier than expected too. The best part is it originally stated it did not have the charging cord and I was ready to go buy one but when it showed up it had a charger. so I am one very pleased customer.
Very convenient, good quality for nonprofessional use

Summary: I did try several other brands like Canon, Olympus and Fujifilm. When I bought my Sony Alpha I was so happy with it that my next purchase was Sony Cyber-Shot for travelling. Absolutely sufficient for an amateur.
