"Gives good pictures when You become familiar with it."4.5 starson by alhamn
Pros: Picture and video as good as the other superzooms. Eternal battery life
Cons: No zoom in video. Flash overexpose when auto+close object.. Exposure and focus measure in center when auto. Takes time to get used to. No zoom when video.
Summary: The Editors rewiev is full of faults. I found about 5 wrong in facts (for instance is the sensor bigger than in Panasonic FZ18) and lot of dubious opinions. Some critics mean that S8000fd don´t give sharp pictures. I you want sharp, just press a button for sharp. Normal is soft. Which I prefer i 90% of my pictures. Since the My rating means not that this is one the best cameras on the market. But for the price, I think it is one of the absolutely best. (Excuse of spelling. I´m Swedish)
