Initial Reaction

I have just purchased this camera as a beginner photographer and my initial reaction to this product is very much positive.

I did some research before purchasing this camera and came to the conclusion that it was a tough competitor when it came to price and features. I must say that one of my worried before purchasing this camera was that there was no glass viewfinder and instead only a viewfinder from the screen. I originally thought that would have posed a problem in direct sun but after testing it out, I was still able to see the screen fine at noon with the sun directly over me.

The zooming capabilities I found with this camera were excellent, prior to purchasing this (my first DSLR like bridge camera) I didn't to need the zoom too much so I didn't go with a more recent model of this camera the SX530 which has a little better zoom and a few additional features like WIFI and slightly improved video capabilities.

I'll return with a full review after I test it out furthermore.

(Below are samples from my first trial, it would be nice to have these added to the sample tab for the camera.)
