Pros I like the 12 mega pixel feature.
Cons Two things: Batteries in the same place with cf card. Open lid to remove card, batteries fall out. Lid is flimsy. 2) When I release auto zoom lever, focus changes a little. Almost impossible to get it right on the button.
Summary The camera is probably as good as any at this price, but if I had known that the batteries and card were in the same place I would not have bought it. It is really a nuisance and the flimsy lid is just begging to get damaged. The auto focus may not be a big deal to most people. I want it for closeups so for me it is terrible (I am very new at this macro thing so have learned that I will definately have to go to a higher end camera with manual zoom).
Pros Insane zoom quality, low-light captures are pretty good. Image stabilization is impressive at long distance zoom. Low energy usage= long lasting batteries if lithium type is used.editing software included. Panaramic assist software included in camera
Cons Low-light focus assist could be better, but not much. Very few cons with this camera, to be honest. I've used it extensively and found very, very little that I don't like about it.
Summary For the price, this camera is top of the line. It's probably one of the best point-and-shoot type cameras on the market. If you want better, you'll have to invest hundreds more to get better. I found mine on Amazon.com for less than $200, and for durability, quality, ease of use, it gets a 9 out of 10. I'd definitly reccomend this to friends and family.
Pros Ease of use 720p HD video, adequate lens for 90% of family picture taking
Cons HDMI cable not included, viewfinder is always nice to have.
Summary Good buy
Cons I have yet to find any cons.
Summary If you're looking for a camera to take professional-type pictures then go buy one of those cameras. I keep seeing people complaining about this camera but you get what you pay for. This is NOT an expensive camera but it is a great camera for the price! This is a wonderful buy for the family picture taker! I love it!!
