Summary: I bought this model because it was not in production and I could not find it in camera stores. I had purchased it years ago for its macro, B&W and array of optional features that even some SLR's don't have. It is easy to operate and small enough to be portable and discreet when shooting.
Summary: I was so surprised how easy this camera is to take pictures. The resolution is wonderful!!!! The Video works great as well. Don't forget the tripod. Resting the camera on a chair, table or other fixed object works ok but we really need to use a tripod when in the video mode.
