I purposely waited before reviewing this camera. The camera has nice functionality and ease of use. I have not had lens cap issues as others have mentioned in their reviews. I did however find some focusing issues. If this camera has it, I have not found a manual focus. Only the automatic but you can trick the focus with a halfway press of the shutter button.
The zoom motor is quite fast. That makes it difficult to get the precise zoom level easily but it is possible.
The big issue I have is there is no Battery Life Indicator until just before it decides not to take any more pictures. There is no way of testing battery life until the batteries are almost done. So a full set of spare charged batteries in my pocket is a must. On the plus side of this the camera is not as much of a battery hog as any of my older cameras. This camera is lighter than them as well. I am not displeased with my purchase but it seems to me a couple more minor additions and this could be the best all around camera for any novice photographer.
With the addition of a SDHC 32 GB card it holds plenty of HD video. However if you remember this is a still shot camera you will not be disappointed by the video quality. Not true HD but much better than a lot of still shot cameras.
Despite what I found I can safely recommend this camera for the price. I am sufficiently happy with it.
PROS: Camera is great for all needs. Easy to use and software friendly.
Light and sturdy with a grip makes taking pictures more ergonomic.
Plenty of functions to choose from for that perfect picture.
SLR Camera feel and quality
CONS: won my Camera for $170 with free shipping....Went to a Walmart a few days after receiving it and saw the same Camera for only $210...Best to shop around when buying anything but better when you research New VS Used prices as well...(Including current and previous sale prices)
Give this Camera a solid B+
