"It captures with a professional style any photo, but it has serious problems with Motion Performances and specially with ISO-taken pictures."

"We were able to go through the features on the camera without a problem and are pleasantly impressed with the clearity of captured images."
_
"I could not make out an adequate image on the lcd and could not get good pictures."

_
"I took it to an outdoor baseball game, it took great pics in ALL light even at dusk."
_
"The quality of the pics wasnt impressive at all....but downloading them to the computer was worse....it wasnt as friendly as with the previous cameras I used to have, Canon and Fuji."
_
"- Nice in-camera feature set: Automatic digital red-eye removal, photo stitch, crop, etc (these work well enough for novices, but you'll probably want to use a computer based program if you are going to set it up)- Relatively comprehensive and well laid out manual control mode (white balance adjustments are missing, but does have things like independent exposure controls and adjustable exposure bracketing).- Relatively compact but not so small that it feels fidgety- Built-in orientation sensorCons:- Screen has a relatively low resolution (would give it 4.51 because of that)- The High-ISO mode (selectable) was either too grainy or smoothed out for my liking in my test shots."
