This is a fun camera because of the extended zoom and some cool effects. The picture quality is inconsistent. I have gotten some unbelievable photos that rival higher end cameras, and I have gotten some really grainy photos. Maybe I have to work with it more. I wish you could post sample photos on t...see moreof the reviewer's review

I love this camera. As far as I am concerned it is the best camera before stepping up into full DSLR cameras with interchangable lenses and all that. It is a great size, the battery life seems to be good, the zoom is awesome, and the picture quality is excellent. It has some fun features, like "smil...see moreof the reviewer's review

We registered for this camera on our baby registry and used the 15% of remaining items on the registry coupon to purchase it. I was wanting to get a more expensive Canon but my husband convinced me that this would be good and he was right. We've been practicing with it taking pictures of our active ...see moreof the reviewer's review

I bought this camera to take videos. I wish I read the reviews on video before i bought this. I was excited because a lot of people gave it good reviews and the price point was good, however I don't agree. Yes, this is a great camera to start off with in PHOTOGRAPHY. The video quality was great for ...see moreof the reviewer's review

This camera does take nice pictures, however I used it for a trip to yellowstone and the batteries had to be changed 3 times within 6 days. I would turn on the camera and the screen would just show white or a weird blue color and I had to turn it on and off several times to reset it. It put itself...see moreof the reviewer's review

Bought this camera for the optical zoom because we were headed to Alaska for the first time and i wanted some shots of mountains and maybe capture some wildlife. The images were fine as long as I didn't zoom all the way in. Those pix were still blurry. Plus I could only get about 10 zoomed in shots ...see moreof the reviewer's review

I had this camera for a day and I was taking pictures of my friend and her son. After using is for an hour or two, the camera would not focus when I zoomed. Eventually, the camera zoomed all the way out (on its own) and completely froze and would not turn on. I thought maybe the batteries were dead ...see moreof the reviewer's review
