The more I use this program, the less I like it. I'm sure it's OK for really simple stuff (so is Windows MovieMaker, which is free) but Adobe really fell down on many, many basic things here. The point is this: if you're going to include a feature, make sure it works..right...all the time. In other words, don't promise what you can't deliver.

It was intended to be used mostly for video (due to the power zoom) but the still images are so clear and sharp, even at full zoom, that it will probably be a mainstay of my still shooting as well. The in-lens I.S. is great--evens out any bumps in panning, even at full 175mm zoom. All my shots and video have been hand held; no blur or shake whatsoever.
I'm giving it only 4 stars due to the placement of the power zoom lever. I hold my hand under the lens to support it and stabilize the camera--a common position to shoot with, and one seen in many photographs of photographers; the placement of the lever forces a different and rather… Read more
