Pros:Beautiful pictures,Great camera, nice size feels good in your hands, So many features.

Cons:Alkaline battry life is bad!! but when you switch to rechargeables problem is gone.

The Bottom Line:

Takes beatiful pictures and with rechargeable batteries you can take many more shots.


I love this camera! I was looking for a camera that first of all does the most important thing a camera can do which is take GREAT pictures. This camera does that. Also the second thing i wanted was a camera that had good noise control. This camera has very little noise at all ISO settings compared to other cameras i have had. Now some of the things i love also about this camera. The 12x zoom is nice too. WHY? Because who likes to zoom with their feet???? I got tired of having to get closer to what i wanted to take a picture of and sometimes could not get a picture of cause i was not able to get closer to the object i was trying to photograph do to a fense or some other object in the way. The optical image stabilization works great too. I have taken shots that well.....lets just say were amazed they came out clear.  The camera has one nice feature i didnt think about when i bought it that i have come to love as well. Thats the cameras built in lens cover. So nice not to have to lug one around or remember to take it off or put it back on. The menu is easy to navagate and the controls on the back are well laid out and easy to use. The screen is large and bright too. The auto function is great for people who are new to photography or just dont want to set manual settings. The manual settings are nice for people who want to have more control over their shots. This camera has one draw back that can be overcome!!! The alkaline battery life span in this camera is the worst however after you have gone threw the ones they give you with the camera who is going to buy new alkaline batteries???? When you switch to rechargeables you will find that you will get a lot more shots out of the camera. i was amazed and glad because this little camera has so much going for it. I am still learning a lot about this camera and am having fun doing it. Hope this helps and get out there and snap some shots.
