This camera is exactly what I need it to be at the perfect price point.
Due to disability I can't hold a camera as still as I could so the stability assistance is magnificent. I also enjoy macro photography but can't lean down or be as mobile as I used to be so the amazing zoom function allows me to feel as though I'm as close to things as I used to be able to be. The image I've shared was taken from over 15 feet away with just the optical zoom.
The quality is fantastic, of course. Much better than anything I've had in the past.
It's easy to use with a little bit of reading.
This is one of the best purchases I've made in a while and this camera goes with me everywhere, strapped around my neck.
