Screen

Screen:
"First, the touch screen responsiveness is wildly inconsistent."
_
"Other than that i've been reading that the touch screen is slow to respond but it's not for me it works perfectly fine."
_
"The only problem is that it looks fuzzy on the screen itself but the final product looks perfect on the computer and printed."
_
"There is a VERY SMALL learning curve when it comes to getting used to the interface as almost everything is done through the touch screen interface, which pretty much sums up one of the key features of this camera which some have complained about... this is a touch screen camera."
_
"It may not look as cool as the coolpix, especially with the touch screen (which doesn't work that well either, by the way) but the pictures are much better."
_
"It is very inconsistent, and having to use the screen to zoom is a pain in the butt."
_
"I like this one for ease of use and the huge screen but it comes up with circular artifacts in the pictures all the time."
_
"If you use flash or touch the screen a lot, it probably is good for 60 or 70 shots."
_
"The only problem is that it looks fuzzy on the screen itself but the final product looks perfect on the computer and printed."
_
"the touch screen i would say is pretty good."
_
"The touch screen navigation is inferior and glicthes often - the touch screen on my Verizon voyager is so much more accurate and responsive."

_
"Quality and the sound of videos are not remarkable."
_
"After getting my hands on one and playing with it for about 10 minutes, I did verify that it can zoom while recording video, and although I have not yet been able to test its image quality, I will not be buying one of these."
_
"However, when I downloaded and watch the video on my computer, it was truly disappointing."
_
"Takes awesome pictures and pretty good video."
_
"Video worked great."
_
"I love the touch screen and I love that it takes 30 minute videos WITH sound!"
_
"I have one good thing to say: the time-lapse movie option is cool."
_

Zoom

Zoom:
"My only complaint so far, and I have had this camera for 3 months, is the location of the zoom."
_
"I don't want to look at the screen to see where the zoom buttons are, and even if you find them, they are often unresponsive."
_
"I suspect that much of the trouble could be fixed with a firmware upgrade (I had the original firmware), but even then, what is wrong with having real buttons for zoom?"
_
"It is very inconsistent, and having to use the screen to zoom is a pain in the butt."
_
"For example, it is already enough for me to make my purchase decision, and it answers a key question that I have not been able to find the answer to after weeks of research, which is Can it zoom while recording video?"
_
"Its predecessor, the DSC-T300, felt like it was built with much higher quality than the S60, and it had very responsive zoom, unfortunately it had poor image quality."
_
"So far the pictures I have taken, are absolutely beautiful and when zoomed in, are CRYSTAL CLEAR."
_
"I'm not sure what other reviewers are reviewing but this is a decent camera with a good VR and Zoom."
_
"Zoom was impressive, including the digital zoom."
_
"I would love to have a tangible zoom button."
