I rarely shoot with anything except DSLRs. However, I had and opportunity to demo this camera for a few days at CES. I was impressed. Love the creative filters. Very easy to operate. I was also surprised on the longevity of the battery with the new ECO system. I'm note easily impressed with point and shoot cameras, but I really had a lot of fun with this one. And that's the key, this camera is FUN. Lots of delightful new concepts.
