"C-net review......what are you thinking??"4.5 starson by bo_dodson
Pros: X12 Zoom/ Image stabli/hotshoe/batt. life++/lots of extras/good video for a digital camera.
Cons: No built-in lens cover/zoom's a little noisy/LCD could be bigger
Summary: I switched from a Z740 to the P850 and I'm glad I did. The camera overall has a solid feel and is very responsive. One thing is that the lag time between pics is a little too long, but I find that with all digital cameras I have owned. Image quality is not bad at all, I have taken some really nice pics with this camera and I must say I really think the quality is under-rated. I give this camera the thumbs-up.....I think for the price you will be very happy with this ultra-zoom camera!!!!
