Recently took the camera to Africa and really appreciated the Optical zoom lens. Had to set the ISO higher to avoid blurry images.

I wanted a nicer camera so I could take pictures of my pets. I have no photography experience so I didn't want to start out with a super expensive camera. Perfect if you just want to test the waters and not spend a huge amount right away. I find the quality to be great. I would recommend for anyone ...see moreof the reviewer's review

If you were to take a picture of an object up close my iphone 99% of the time would take better quality pictures. Either spend the money and get a good camera or ju...see moreof the reviewer's review
