I actually just lost my camera :( and after reading up on other cameras out there, I will be buying the exact same one. The pictures are very clear, the color is nice, battery life is really good, extremely portable, and the videos are pretty good. I read a professional review somewhere that said that if you take a lot of pictures indoors that this camera was not for you. Well, I am no professional but I have taken a LOT of indoor pictures & they all turned out great. In fact, my husband is in Afghanistan for the next year so I have literally taken 100s of pictures of my son over the past 5 months & I have absolutely LOVED the picture quality indoor & out.
My one complaint is that picture-to-picture time is a little slow (meaning that you take one picture & it takes a minute to let you shoot another). I also enjoyed the mode where the camera kept shooting as long as you held down the button (so when you flip through the pictures it's like watching a slow-mo video - this allows you to get every single shot), but picture quality was not as good in that mode. I've looked into other cameras in this price range & slightly higher but MANY reviews say that the picture quality is lacking. Even with my few complaints about this camera, picture quality is great & that is why I will be buying it again.
I am obviously not a professional, or even close to it, just an average person looking for an easy to use camera with good picture quality. But if you are a professional or someone who really dabbles in photography, you should probably be getting a more expensive camera anyway. For an average joe, and for what you pay, this is an excellent camera!
