Me and my partner are going on Safari in Kenya iin July and wanted a camera that has a great zoom function. We tested all over zoom cameras in the range and this camera seemed everything for what we needed. We did think of getting a a DSLR camera but they where more than we wanted to spend and adding a zoom lense would of made the price even more expensive. We picked this up from Amazon for £388, roughly £100 cheaper than the sony shop!

We have been testing the camera in are local park and near the local lake. We are very pleased with the image results and also the 1080p video capabilities. Looking foward to taking this camera on Holiday with us and getting some great shots in the Masi Mari.

Problems:

When at Full Zoom, sometimes quite hard to keep the picture steady.
