Summary: Good Camera. I've taken over 2000 photos on mine. Avoid Bionyx LLC, I tried to upgrade to a Sony A65. They NEVER shipped it, and I had to wait 20 days for Amazon to complete the cancellation of the sale. Meanwhile, all the cameras in the lower price ranges sold out.
Great value, awesome features, incredible performance

Summary: I received this last night, so I haven't had much time with it yet, but my initial response is amazement. Excellent camera. I'm very impressed by it's low-light performance. I miss the optical view finder, but the speed of focus and shooting more than make up for it.
Summary: Image quality is good and the control is not dificult. The lens was not expensive and has some options. Is not a perfect camera, but for the price was the best buy and increase a lot on my photos. It's a good camera.
Summary: I love this camera. It's image quality is very nice and this camera is a perfect camera for a hobbyist picture taker. It has many built in features and it can take up to 7 shots per second. This is in the same class as Nikon's d5100 I believe, and It performs much better in my opinion.
Summary: This hard sheild appears to be a very robust unit. I have not done a scratch test on it, but being polycarbonate, I tend to believe it will provide reasonable protection. I first discovered this on a YouTube review, and ordered it on that recommendation.
Summary: This camera is really really nice. I have been using it about a month now and it has performed flawlessly. With the included 55mm lenses I have taken photos of friends and mountains. It is fully automatic and allows for complete user control of settings.
Summary: I had quite a good point and click that had manual options that I was just starting to learn. I am no expert at all but decided I wanted to upgrade to try my hand at better photos and also movies.
