Summary: I read reviews of this camera on a photography blog. I consider myself an intermediate level photographer and wanted an affordable DSLR that would allow me to do more than my old Nikon would. This camera is perfect for me: I have very small hands but it is easy to hold and focus; the range of settings allows all sorts of experimentation; the 50x zoom is exactly what I wanted. My first attempt at a moon picture is awesome.
Summary: Camera is Awesome for it's price. I compared it with my friends $1,000 Camera as well that he bought a year ago brand new by sony and this camera actually had more 4.5 more megapixels than his! This camera takes 3D shots and has 360 panorama and I thought it just took stills, but turns out it takes video as well!!! The only knock on this camera is that the lens doesn't seem to be removable, but with such a great one on already there isn't much to complain about.
Summary: I received this camera as well on Saturday and was impressed by the package of things that came with it. We went to Mt. Hood yesterday and it took great pictures of the mountain and ice in the river.. Still will be learning this every day. Cons The lens cap string is cheap and the glued part keeps coming off, my hubby is going to fix this. Sony needs to come up with a better and stronger solution for future sales.
Summary: Camera was very good but it was sold by Amazon as new but somehow arrived with 3330 photos already recorded on it. It was returned for a full refund (thank you Amazon). Advise any buyer of camera equipment to immediately check their purchase to confirm it arrives new if it sold as being such. Aside from the above issue, this is a great bridge camera with best 50X zoom available. It takes some practice to get best results at the long end of the zoom.
Excerpt: Takes great photos, easy to use. Good to have the extra battery as battery life doesn't last too long.<br />Love how the screen tilts so you can take photos up over your head, and fast shutter speed allows you to take several shots at one time.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD
