The zoom is unbelievable, great settings, very simple to use. My sister has a professional camera that has very complex settings, so if you're looking for something nice and simple that can take very good pictures, this camera is the one!see moreof the reviewer's review

Most people are cell phone user and would not find this a detraction. I am old school photographer and value the VF wh...see moreof the reviewer's review
