Think about these things before purchasing
on June 24, 2013
I used credit from squaretrade to get this when my other camera died. This is a nice little camera, with two flaws. If you want to take widscreen (15:9) pictures, it will only take them at 12 megapixels and not 16. You have to take fullscreen photos at 16mp. The other thing, is the touchscreen. The touchscreen replaces stuff that really needs like a dial to quickly set like the picture mode and so on, instead of fumbling around with the touchscreen all the while what you were trying to take a picture of is gone or changed.
They could have made the interface much better but, it works, and I suppose you can get used to it. As for the 3D, I took a 3D picture, plugged it up to my TV, which detected the 3D, but there was not a 3D effect at any kind. I have a vizio passive 3D TV. Anyway, it could not have been that good of 3D regardless with only one lens, must be some kind of fake 3D effect.
I will be keeping this camera regardless of the shortcomings, because it feels nice, has a large screen, photo effects, and it takes good pictures.
