This camera is reasonably priced and i have definetly gotten my moneys worth since i purchased it a couple of months ago. The resoloution is quite good and the camera functions well in general. For amature photographers this camera is an excellent option. It is not too complicated to use, has plenty of features and good battery life. Somebody looking to take profetional quality photographs may want to look for a more advanced camera. In general this camera is great for the average photographer and i do not regret purchasing it. Of my three digital cameras that i own (two of them being the fuji finepix 4700 and ricoh RDC 7) this one is definetly my favourite.
