Excerpt: This camera is as good or better than all the reviews you may have read. As a casual photographer I easily learned how good the auto feature is, changing mode for portraits, scenery, and the automatic flash.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I use the camera for a long international trips and have had no issues. I did an extensive amount of research on this particular camera before purchasing, and I'm glad I did. I would advise any serious enthusiast or person concerned about image quality (you know who you are) to use this as a DSLR replacement when you want something smaller. For MOST pictures, it is almost as good as a DSLR.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
Cons: Limited Zoom, No Viewfinder, Short Battery Life
Summary: Fantastic camera and even better deal! This is a camera I will have no reason to replace for many years. There is a reason why this camera was still receiving top honors even at several years old.
Excerpt: I use this camera for times I need high quality photos, and when I don't want to carry my large DSLR. It's small and light enough to carry in my pocket, which is a feature I love! This little powerhouse takes awesome pictures! I especially love the sharpness, high resolution, and speed. Great for continuous shooting and action shots! The only feature I don't like is the external flash, which can pop up unexpectedly in low light situations...
