"Exceptional camera! Full feature set. 30X lens is sharp"5.0 starson by nybuen
Pros: The long lens (720 equivalent) coupled with the 16 megapixel resolution and the electronic viewfinder and a full feature set make this the equivalent of a dSLR at a fraction the cost. It produced excellent results from wide 24mm thru 126mm settings.
Cons: It is nearly as bulky as a dSLR. It will take some time to master all of the menu options -- such as "best frame capture."
Summary: If you are looking for an advanced camera with a long lens but want to avoid the cost and weight of a dSLR, this is a stand-out option to consider. 16 mp, 3.0 LCD, full HD video, 360 degree panorama, 11 frames high speed continuous shooting, 3D shooting, high resolution ETV.
