"I recommend it!"4.0 starson by hartzjr
Pros: Excellent Zoom and easy to use
Cons: not many.......but a little bulky
Summary: Despite the negative reviews by CNET, I looked into this one because of the excellent zoom capabilities and the large LCD screen and was not disappointed. For a modest price on digital cameras, this produces great pictures in many different settings. I questioned whether or not this would work well in action shots. After a few NCAA sporting events, I was very impressed. Based on other reviews I had read, I also hoped it would do well in dark settings and it did very well. This is my first digital camera and I'm glad I made the purchase. It is easy to use and performs well in the aforementioned categories that mean the most to me. I owned a Fuji previously and loved the way the pics developed. I did not purchase the additional lense for the extended landscape photography but plan to do so sometime in the future. I recommend it.
