Bought this camera for my girlfriend so she could record a concert

Summary: We found this camera after watching a few youtube videos using this camera to record other concerts. She knew that most camera's microphones would distort loud audio such as that encountered in a live performance. After looking through several youtube videos we zeroed in on this model since it was at a good price and didn't seem to lose audio quality. She took it with her to the concert and has been thanking me for it ever since!
One of the best P&S cameras except for one feature

Summary: This Sony model has been one of my all-time favorite cameras. Easy for anyone to use on either of the Auto selections. Takes bright, sharp photos and excellent videos. The menu system is intuitive. It has the Sony G lens which is a great lens. Focuses fast, somewhat quick to recycle so you can take the next picture (as long as you use a Class 10 SDHC card). It's a little thick so it may not fit in your pocket. Not made in China - made in Thailand.
Summary: I bought this camera to use for our school sports team. I take pictures and video, edit them, and make slideshows. I particularly love the video on this camera; it's crystal clear and great quality. I would definitely buy this camera again because it's a perfect travel camera for our team and takes great pictures and video.
Summary: I had a nikon S6100 before I bought this HX7V but I didn't like it because of its slow shutter speed and the functions it had, so I dicided to buy this one and since the moment I took it out of the box I loved it. Great point n' shoot camera, im used to carry around my dslr and this is a great choice for a compact carry on camera.
Summary: My son is a budding photographer, and he is thrilled with this camera! With other cameras, he always got blurry photos, but this one is razor sharp. He's really getting a lot of use out of the video feature as well. Here are the things he was looking for: low light capability, HD video, good zoom, no shutter lag. He is satisfied on all counts!
Summary: Pics look good to me; I usually just put most on facebook, so I'm not really anal about the quality. I hardly use any special features, but I like the options and this camera seems to have quite a few. Love the zoom, the panorama works very well compared to other cameras I've had that do the sweep panorama.
Summary: I was looking for a compact point and shoot in the $200 range that took sharp pictures with good image stabilization. My old Canon Powershot SD750 (which I was very happy with) died recently and I needed a replacement. I tried 5 different cameras, and the picture quality on all of them was alful: 1. Panasonic DMC-FH25A 2. Nikon Coolpix S6200 3. Canon PowerShot SX230HS 4. Canon PowerShot SD980IS 5. Canon PowerShot Elph 100 HS They all got returned.
Summary: The wide angle lens is great for taking pictures of many people in a small space. But when someone's face gets in the edges of the image, the face gets distorted, just have to take care of that. It happens with these lens. The zoom is great. The sweep panorama works very well. Has all the manual controls aperture time, diaphragm aperture.
