Excerpt: I have taken over 9000 pictures with this camera in the last year. This includes everything from snow to Sun to the beach to Lake to indoors and all lighting conditions you can think of. I have been extremely impressed and happy with this success. I have done newborn pictures with my son and wedding pictures for family members. Its menus and functions are very easy to use. The auto functions on the camera does wonderful by itself.
Summary: I ordered this combo Dec. 29th and received it Jan 3rd. I've received an email from Focus Camera thanking me for the purchase and to let them know if anything was amiss. The gadget bag is about the perfect size for the camera and its essential accessories. I have not actually used the camera yet; I'll update this review as I gain experience. REVISION: (There IS a viewfinder focusing control; Instruction Manual parts ID item 23. Nowhere is this control explained).
Summary: Prelim look at most of the camera functions seems okay so far. I will update this review if things change. I bought this item used and the shipper had put it in a box a quarter of an inch too small to contain it. Thus I received a box with a dome-like bulge on one end of it, where the retracted lens was pushing up. Yikes!
Summary: This is surprisingly a very good camera for the price. First and foremost it has the Carl Zeiss lens which I think makes a big difference. This camera is packed with features like of a Dslr but with additional fun creative options. I also like the articulating lcd screen. It's easy to use the settings from Auto to Manual operations so it's more than just a point and shoot camera. So far I've been very happy with the quality of the pictures i have taken.
The camera came new and perfect condition. Worked good as expected

Summary: The camera came new and perfect condition. Worked good as expected. This cam is very good in giving quality pictures even in dark. Used it all over my trip in 2014 Christmas vacation. Value for money and totally recommend.
Summary: This camera takes fantastic pictures! We took it to Hawaii and it was able to work with all types of lighting and scenery. This camera was put to the test with others in my tour group that had the expensive Canon cameras. The best thing about this is that you can zoom in without needing to change out your lens. Even the professional photographer in the group couldn't get over on how well the pictures it took with a built in lens.
Excerpt: Great all in one camera. Carl Zeiss lens is very sharp.24 to 1200 what more could you ask for an all in 1 lens. Down falls electronic zoom control is not all that precise, eye level finder very poor, for this price range. Despite those 2 down falls. It great all in one camera for taveling light. Macro is good, street photograph, action, and any task you put it to.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
