Handy and takes great pictures!


Tried this camera out before giving to my Dad. Love the features, it has just the right combination of attributes. I just didn't realize it was quite so small. Great if you want to keep it in your pocket.

I like!!!


All in All, this camera is really nice and I like the strong build. I hope it keeps it's shape..not to ding easy. Video is a bit grainy but sounds are wonderful. Has stereo speakers. Great zoom and foucus fine..a bit slow and a bit slow to zoom in and out. A tad bit laggy ( lag ). I can get over those things as long as the pictures are good...and they are! I PRINTED FIVE WITHOUT USING ANY EDITING...REAL NICE AND I AM IMPRESSED..SO FAR! JUST GOT IT YESTERDAY!
