Touch screen is a mixed blessing.

Pros:Front display is handy when taking self portrates.  Nice timer count down in timer mode.

Cons:Impossible to take a self picture and not touch the touch screen. 

I've only had the camera a few days now. A bit disappointing that it won't take SD memory which is laying around everywhere. Instead requires micro SD so had to order special card.  

Have found the touch screen to be a mixed blessing. Nice when you're behind the camera but if you're trying to hold the camera and take self pictures your fingers will certainly "touch" the screen and screw up the settings.  It's almost impossible to hold the camera and take a picture of yourself without touching the screen.

It has an "auto" and a "smart auto" setting. I found the auto almost always takes better pictures than smart auto.  That's counter intuitive.

Battery drains very quickly. The manual says about 90 min. but we found if you're taking pictures and looking at them it dies much quicker than that.
