The hard part is initially focusing on the bird with just the LCD screen and no view finder. Even with the moveable LCD panel I find it helps to spot movement by the subject and then I am able to further zoom in (under normal daylight conditions).
I really appreciate the wide angle lens. This is very helpful for taking photos to capture an entire room in your house for example.
I have also taken a few videos and the quality seems outstanding to me.
This camera does not have built-in GPS. I had a prior camera with built in GPS and do not miss that feature (battery drainer).
It starts up very fast and so far I do not mind that you have to pop up/open the flash manually. Most photos do not need a flash and its easy enough most times to get two photos in to see if its better with the flash or not. Its just a bit of a learning curve for those of us that come from digital cameras that decide for themselves if they need the flash (automatic).
The camera uses AA batteries. I rotate between two sets of Duracell HR6 rechargeable AA's and keep a set of Alkaline's in the bag for backup.
I store the camera in a Case Logic case (DCB-304) and purchased a sling strap that screws onto the tripod mount (Case Logic DCS-101). I find half the time I don't use the strap at all because the camera has such a great grip. The primary memory card I am using is a SanDisk 32GB (Class 10, 45 MB/s).
Simply put...I love the camera. The pictures I get from it are just as nice (even better sometimes) than I get from my more expensive cameras. I take this camera with me everywhere now. Even at full zoom you often get pictures that turn out well. They lose a little sharpness sometimes, but still decent shots.
This camera is a great camera for a beginner and especially nice for someone who wants an easy camera to use with a reliable auto mode.
I love the simplicity of the menu and how easy and quick it is to switch between settings. Besides the high-quality pictures I'm getting from it, my favorite thing about this camera is just how user-friendly and easy to use it is. There are lots of photo setting options to play around with from the menu or simply use auto mode or easy auto mode.
The Available Shooting Modes are: Easy Auto Mode, Scene Mode, Special Effects, Smart Portrait and Auto Mode.
The Available Scene modes are: Portrait, Landscape, Sports, Night Portrait, Party/Indoor, Beach, Snow, Sunset, Dusk/Dawn, Night Landscape, Close-up, Food, Museum, Fireworks Show, Black and White copy, Backlighting, Easy Panorama and Pet Portrait.
The Available Special Effects are: Soft, Nostalgic Sepia, High Contrast, High Key, Low Key, Selective Color, Pop, Super Vivid, Cross Process, Toy Camera1 and Toy Camera2
You can also apply special effects and filter effects after taking a picture when in the review picture mode and it will save the original version of the picture along with the newly changed version. A fun one to use with this feature when taking people or pet shots is the fish eye effect.
Video clarity and coloring is really nice.
I purchased the plum camera and it's very pretty so that is a bonus too.
*Update* I bought this camera in May refurbished. A couple months later it started occasionally malfunctioning. It would lock up and refuse to take pictures or the zoom would keep going full zoom when you were trying to adjust it and would not come back from being full zoom. I would have to take the batteries out and put them back in to get it to work properly again. I contacted the seller but they said it was outside of the 45 day policy so they wouldn't do anything about it and to contact the manufacturer. I am not adjusting my rating because the camera when it worked was awesome. I just made the expensive mistake of buying it refurbished from them.
I would recommend buying an after-market shoulder strap vs. the default one that comes with it, along with a good cheap cleaning cloth for the lens (and spray), which will go far in terms of this purchase. A case isn't necessary vs. throwing it in a bag with some kind of cushioning, mine has survived like this for over a year with only some cosmetic damage to the viewing screen.
Pros include the viewing screen, which can be easily pivoted for shots from your waist, above-the-head, etc. The zoom lens is very useful for both framing and getting in on the action, we have gotten great stills and videos from the zoo, for example, as well as good shots at family events like Christenings and birthdays.
Cons -- no viewfinder, which you do tend to miss if taking a lot of shots of flying or moving objects, especially high-zoom. Also, pros and high-end amateurs will need something more than this camera, but it will be for specific reasons not worth elaborating here (and if you don't know these reasons, you won't miss them).
For the money, it is a great bargain, and coupled with an after-market shoulder strap that allows more freedom and less neck-strain, a great camera for the money vs. what you will pay for cameras with less zoom but more features. For it's audience, the mid-range camera-using public, I highly recommend it. Film students and pros, keep moving, but you probably aren't reading this review anyways vs. another model.
