5 Star Review   By ShutterHappy on Adorama - Jun 24, 2013   

I used a 35mm SLR for years taking mostly nature and fire photos. I was looking for something better than a "point and shoot" digital. All the reviews I read of this camera were good, and I have to agree after trying it out. The SMART modes are great for routine shots or for those who like a point and shoot. The Program mode gives plenty of control over shooting features for the more advanced photographer. This camera has an excellent zoom, great scene modes, and the special effects make some pretty cool pictures. My only complaints are the speed of saving photos or processing, and the burst mode - it's a little slow. Photos at 16MP take up to 4 sec and 10MP take up to 2 sec to save to the card. This is not a problem for most of my shooting though. As long as VGA resolution is good enough for you the Motion Capture at 5 fps captures great action photos. The Continuous mode is too slow for me (approx 1.5 sec/picture at 10MP) For the novice, set it on SMART and snap away, it selects the correct Scene mode for you. For the more advanced, download the manual and spend some time playing with the settings and modes. Once you learn the features, you can do a lot. The 3D (if you can view them) and the Panorama modes are truly awesome!

Great Camera, Great Price!
5 Star Review   By RegRaea on Adorama - Jun 21, 2013   

I wanted a bridge camera that had a wide variety of features for a reasonable price. I definitely got far more than I expected or paid for with this camera. There are so many features and it's fun to try them all out. My only complaint is that the camera can be slightly slow, but overall, it's absolutely wonderful. I would definitely recommend this camera if you're looking for a wonderfully priced bridge camera.
