Satisfactory. I paid $300 out the door at a major electronics chain store for a floor model. It has performed nearly perfectly, with some sticking of the zoom lever after 3 years. Performs quickly enough to show the personality of animals and wildlife. It captures more available light between sunset and dusk than I expected. Craters on full moon were visible. This full-featured point-and-shoot is compact enough to grab and go. Mine is kept on a tripod by the door, with a quick release for ...

I;vde had this camera for over a year now and very pleased with it. Its always used when I am not using my D700. The results are very good, sharp and well exposed. A asset is the tilting screen which comes in very handy at times. the video mode is an asset too being High definition and the high speed mode is a joy to use, well exposed, good sound etc. The only fault I have found is the zoom is rather jerky but I believe that the same with all bridge and compact cameras so its no big deal

I love all the features and the ergonomics of this camera. However, I expected it to be an upgrade from my CanonA720, or at least as good...with the bonus of a large zoom. The quality of images is very poor and doesn't compare at all! The colors are soft and pale rather than sharp and crisp in the auto modes. And in the manual and priority modes they are dull and washed out. Very disappointed in what seemed like a 'wow' camera! Problems: The battery has a very short life, and needs to be ...

I bought this camera because it was much lighter and cheaper to carry to places where taking an slr would be somewhat intimidating. I like the video, the swivel lcd and the construction, but I dont like the difficulty in changing settings like ISO and others, and the fact that you cannot charge the battery separate from the camera.

as a beginner I can't imagine a better camera, it's a leap of semi-professional cameras. however the focus isn't fast and can't operate correctly over all the modes. it is not a tripod standard size camera although it needs one. great features with poor accessibility.

Pros: - The feature set is really remarkable. If only they all worked as advertised. - Camera is very lightweight (almost too much so) - Incredible optical zoom range. Cons: - Image quality is horrible, at least in the one I got. Very dull and unsaturated, noisy even in good light. The few best photos I got from my 200 or so images I shot with it the first day were only marginal. - Horrible autofocus performance. A point and shoot camera should easily be able to put everything in focus. ...

Pros are evident, the best P&S camera for tele-mode I’ve ever used. Zoom is really fast and silent. The picture is sharp at any optical zoom position, you can’t experience it, for example, with Canon SX 20 IS. Viewfinder is better than in Canon as well. Cons: • Macro-mode isn’t good at all, at least worst than other modes. • You can’t shoot movies at high zoon without tripod, but no video camera allows to do it anyway • Bracketing mode interface in not easy to use, you must go through the ...

The 26x zoom is indeed incredible - but I do get some blurry shots when the camera is not still. Despite that I am really enjoying the camera. Two things I do not like: 1) Slight black out when you start HD recording - the recording itself is very good at 1080p. 2) It tends to over expose so I have set up a -0.3 exposure compensation.
