Nice Camera


Camera works as advertised. Digital controls take a bit of getting used to but then that makes for a much less cluttered set of manual controls. Nice sized LCD screen for view and review. Good feature set. I have not used all of the features but what I have used I am pleased with. FOr the price you get good features and pictures.

I love how small and sleek this camera is and it takes great sharp photos. My only complaint is with the instruction/user manual. There is not enough information on the camera's features in this manual. Some important instructions have been left out. The camera is great for my needs, but someone who takes a lot of pictures may want something with more features and a more detailed manual.
