Pros full HD with zoom in a compact body alone worth its price...
GPS work quick and well if you download GPS assist data...
HDR for outdoor, twilight mode for night/indoor, extra steady on long zoom mode and Panorama are just down right additive...
Cons battery run down really quick if you made HD video, poor indoor AWB, few internal setting to play with...
Summary everyone talk about soft picture for this camera, but just remember you got that 10X wide angle zoom in a light compact body here... if you want really sharp photo, get that panasonic LX3 with 2.5X zoom...
brought this camera right before our trip to Alaska to complement my excellent Panasonic LX3, shoot over 12GB of HD video and photos in 9 days under the amazingly good weather...
Pros Features; ease of use; picture quality is perfect; wide angle lens; zoom lens; HD Video
Cons Absolutely nothing
Summary The amount of features are incredible and the best part about them are the fact that the results come out as they were designed to. Settings such as one that will take a shot in twilight while not using a tripod, panoramic that actually works, and HDR shooting all are amazing features.
"Great Camera"on by unsukim
Pros The Pros is just a great Camera all around.
Cons Their is nothing wrong at all with this cam
Summary Bottom line is get the settings right and this Cam takes better than my D-5000
Pros Wide angle lense
Image stabilization even at 10X zoom
Intelligent sweep panoramic shots
Cons It is a little more bulky then any typical point and shoot, but still light in weight.
Your fingers might block the Mic while recording video.
Summary My favorite features are the panoramic and twilight modes.
They both work well and very simple to use.
Some have complained about using the Panoramic shots saying they had trouble.
I really dont see how it would be tough to use.
The video quality is very nice as well, but be careful because of the Mic placement.
Pros Love the features: video, sweep panorama, gps, etc.
Cons Sweep panorama takes some practive but is really cool.
Summary I have 2 DSLRs but I always take this camera along for a couple of reasons: it gives me the gps coordinates of where I'm shooting and I can take a panorama of the entire scene. The panorama takes some practice and does somewhat distort the image but is really cool to have. I love this camera!
