The best multi purpose camera

I have used above average Nikon and Canon DSLR cameras and I bought this for holiday travel when I dont want to carry heavy and expensive gear around. I am quite impressed by the quality of still pictures and videos produced by this camera. The lens is amazing in its ability to capture true color.

Still pictures even in low light situations turn out quite sharp. Although the interval between two still pictures at the highest resolution can test my patience now and then, it is worth the wait.

H.D. Videos taken by this camera rival those taken with DSLRs, most of which dont have image stabilization. Slight hand shakes were absorbed by the stabilization mechanism and the scenes had a "fluid" feeling ! During my last holiday I shot 2 hours of video with lots of zooming and about 100 still pictures in one day with one charge of the battery. Impressive.
