"Great travel camera but read the instructions first it appears slow but you first have to press down a bit to get the image in view and then click away -- so if u are taking action photos it may be a bit slow but there are multitude of settings u can use for sports action..- I took tons of photos inside cathedrals, art museums and perfect Truly the outdoor photos were excellent!"
