Love it....... BUT.....
Dec 28, 2012

For the most part I love this camera. It's simple to use in full auto mode, has enough features to satisfy anybody who wishes to do all their own settings. The zoom length is a major plugs. I know there are some with up to 50x zoom, but, really??? And this one will go to 60x with clear image, so it's totally more than anyone could use.

Got a great price on it at my local Best Buy. Total of $400 out the door. I see it on Amazon right now for $366 w/free shipping and no tax!!

Video is terrific, stills are very good+. For all but the pro photographer the image quality is well beyond acceptable.

Nits are, no RAW, must remove lens cap before turning camera on, no hot shoe. (not major problems, but, wish these issues weren't there.)

GPS is a HUGE plus that some cameras in this class do not have. I love it!!
