Two things. 1) It works for me, plus I also read the manual and know the tricks, 2) It is a camera for stills, not action. So buy if you shoot stills and plan on learning how the camera thinks. It is not a point and shoot camera. the important thing is to know your needs and match them to the right tool.

All photographs are stills.

"A still image is a single static image, as distinguished from a kinetic image (see below). This phrase is used in photography, visual media and the computer industry to emphasize that one is not talking about movies, or in very precise or pedantic technical writing such as a standard."

No argument. But sometimes the subject of the static image won't stay still. In that case, brand X, is not the best choice
