Pros Quality Construction, Great Design, Lightweight
Recommended it? Yes

Great Camera! I purchased to take photos and HD videos instead of carrying around my bulky SLR and HD camcorder if I felt like travelling light. The Video is spectacular from such a small package, it does have vertical smear (purple) as it's a CCD sensor, and sometimes has trouble focusing in high... Read full review »

I have had this camera since Christmas and I love it!  I can't figure out how people are getting bad pictures with this -- maybe they are not still enough or are taking photos in conditions that most cameras would not perform well.  For me, this camera has been a dream and takes sharp...

One of the things that I recently started using more often is the image selection in the settings. This saves a bit of time when going to edit and print your pictures. Read full review »

We use this as our everyday camera to capture the kids growing up, and have been happy with the pictures we've gotten from it. It's lightweight and compact, making it perfect to carry in the purse for impromptu photo sessions at the park.

We bought this camera, because our old sony finally died after 2 kids and 7 years.  The only bad thing I can think about this camera is that when your recording a movie, you cannot zoom.  Other than that it's the perfect camera for our on the road family.  It has HD recording on your...

I do like this camera a lot and I have gotten some great pictures, but I have also missed out on some great pictures because it took so long for this camera to actually take the picture.

Excellent features for the price, but very soft looking pictures when viewed at full size. If you don't view your pictures in full size then they look absolutely fine and you won't notice a thing, but once you blow them up to original you will. My old Canon SD750 took much sharper looking pictures... Read full review »
