"Excellent pocket size ultra zoom"4.0 starson by Rosemaryheller1
Pros: Excellent quality in most lighting conditions, fast start up, easy to navigate menus, sharp photos with high contrast, long battery life.
Cons: Some blur in dim lighting situations.
Summary: I bought this camera to replace an Olympus 765 that was showing it's age. I use a Canon XT Rebel in conjunction with a pocket camera for most purposes. I was hesitant to buy a camera that did not offer an optical viewfinder, but it seems that camera makers are eliminating that feature on smaller cameras. I am extremely happy with this camera despite the fact that it does not offer an optical viewfinder. The anti shake function seems to eliminate blur even when using the zoom at its highest level. Videos are easy to record as well. I highly recommend this gem to anyone, beginner, and enthusiast who is interested in a portable, powerful ultra zoom.
