"Outstanding camera in the $200 range!"5.0 starson by ofspngfreak
Pros: 1) Extremely user friendly, 2) very organized menu where you can quickly find everything you need, 3) every feature is explained in the camera and the camera guide CD, 4) you don't have to be a pro photographer to feel like one using this, 5) lots of sett
Cons: 1) Red is way too bright as the editor of this review has mentioned. But it's nothing that Photoshop or some program can't fix I think. 2) Tiny buttons, but it's not as bad as the review makes it out to be. One will get use to it, but I can see very
Summary: I've shopped for a week straight in town for a good camera I could grow with for awhile until I was ready to move into a DSLR in 2-3 years and to document photos of automotive repair work I'm doing on my pickup. I wanted something that would take excellent close ups of the damage and rust shown on the metal of the truck but later on be able to enjoy taking photos of the outdoors and landscape and my pets. I fell in love with the WX9 when I first played with it at the store. But I wanted to keep searching around and online. I was very hesitant to buy this because this is my very first camera and it is a major purchase for me right now. I had the opportunity to play around with many, many cameras but this one felt like "home". I was iffy on the whole red saturation thing, but everything else outweighed that problem (and a photo specialist said I'd be able to take care of it through Photoshop). Once I finalized my purchase, I realized that I made the right choice. This camera is near perfect and SO easy to learn and use. From all the cameras I have played around with (thoroughly) and read reviews on, this one was the best. This is definitely worth it to me. If you're simply looking for a "professional look" on photos but want something simple enough to point and shoot, this is it. Really.
