I bought the camera for myself for a Christmas Present.. Wanted a better camera then my Panasonic one and one I got! Wow, this camera is truly amazing and I'm still trying to learn how to fine tune my pictures.. I took it to the Stock Show yesterday and took numerous pictures in very low light.. the pictures came out really nice! Not once did the flash go off and I was super impressed! I wish the lens that came with it had better zoom, but I will have to buy the lens for this camera with that feature... no biggy! I'm definitely very pleased!

Great choice for those wanting higher quality pictures/video
I purchased this camera yesterday and I am so excited about it that I had to immediately write a review. I was looking for something to replace my [old camera] that also took high quality video so I would have everything I needed in one camera. The HD video on this camera is so clear and the camera is extremely user-friendly. I also wanted something that would be less bulky than a traditional SLR camera and while this is obviously thicker than a regular digital camera, the size is easily manageable and the neck strap makes for easy portability for stills or video. I really like the ease of the menu which made it almost unnecessary for me to review the user guide in order to learn how to use the cameras features (I still decided to...this camera can do a lot of things and I want to know it all!). The only drawbacks I have found thus far are that the lens cap does not have a strap to connect itself to the camera, so you have to remove it completely and place into a bag; the second was that the shutter is noisier than my previous camera, but the pictures are so much better that I honestly don't mind!Overall, I highly recommend this camera for the person on the go who wants to have the best of both worlds: incredible shots with the ability to shoot HD movies in a portable camera. You won't be disappointed!
I love this camera! It's pictures are crisp, clear, and beautiful. The only downside I would say is the indoor photos are pretty blurry but mainly I take photos outside anyway. I can't wait to learn more about it's functions and take some night photos!!
