Just thrilled with this camera! I'm impressed!
on April 8, 2014
After trying and returning 7 cameras I settled on this one. All in the same price range. Panasonic, Sony, Canon, another Nikon, and finally this sweet machine.
I haven't put it through it's paces yet, but I'm delighted with the zoom, the quality of the pictures. Ease of use, and so many options I have not begun to try then all.
The screen is awesome and has an anti glare coating.
The lens is perfect and of high quality.
The size and feel is great. It feels solid and well built. With the white color it just looks elegant, as well as performing elegantly. Smooth zoom, great low light, and superb anti shake performance.
I will not be using the Wi Fi feature, so I can't comment on that.
It has a tripod mount. Many of today's point and shoot leave this feature out. It also has a macro setting (dedicated button, instead of the camera deciding for you automatically) which lacks in many point and shoot cameras these days, and was one of the deciding factors as to why I chose this camera.
I have been a huge photography hobbyist, the better part of 50+ years, and I'm extremely choosy about the camera I buy. I research for months, and try a lot of cameras before making a decision. I'm very informed at the time of purchase. I was semi professional. I'm not just a casual user. Choosing this camera was a very informed decision.
The detail in the photos I've taken so far is incredible.
I will update this review as I learn more.
