Summary: I was skeptical about this camera due to some comments about the low light difficulty. I am very happy with the purchase and have taken some excellent family portraits and indoor shots. I believe this was an excellent value and love the pictures I am getting.
Out of luck with this vendor if you have a warranty issue

Summary: Very disappointed with the POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE FROM THIS VENDOR. Camera was purchased as a gift. After 2 months of use, it displayed an error message to 'insert memory card' after the memory card is replaced (after downloading images).
Excerpt: Just got my camera about 1 week ago, and it is very easy to use. Have taken several 3D pictures and they are beautiful. Am having fun trying new features with my camera. The pictures are clear, sharp, and good color. Have used the movie feature and have gotten very nice movies of my granddaughter.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Excerpt: Overall I am very happy with the camera, but it is not without its quirks. The camera was purchased for its GPS capability for use in Landscape photography. It is well suited to that. A couple issues I have noticed: 1) The write times are very slow. 2) GPS takes a while to acquire location.
Pros: Great Resolution, Great Zoom
Cons: Complicated Controls, Lag / Shutter Delay, No Viewfinder
Excerpt: Ordered a Panasonic Lumix, but found the image quality to not be as good as on HX20V, Returned the Lumix and got the HX50V. Really like the remote control by iphone. Photo quality is great and it has Aperature and Speed control as well as GPS.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Remote Control By Iphone
Summary: Good battery life. Fast GPS reception. Ok wifi skills and android app. Great zoom! Good price. Focusing on macro Items can sometimes be a little challenging. If you have patience and play with it it gets great shots though.
Summary: Don't even know all the features, but it takes quality pictures, better than prior Fuji 10 mega pixel
Pros: price, quality, features. Best feature is that it can take very good pictures in low light, without the flash, and the colors look good. I'm not a camera expert, read a good review after seeing this refurbed on sale. Am happy with the camera. Also, it will charge from the USB cable!
Cons: you won't have that "new" feeling. It didn't come with a case. Probably a reduced warranty, but i've never had much success with warranty service anyway.
Summary: I bought this camera on the recommendation of a friend who has the camera's predecessor. He gets terrific results in low light. This particular camera...not as much. Defocus does not work particularly well unless you're right on top of your subject.
