Advantages: one of the best optical zooms you will get for your money.
Disadvantages: Can be a little bulky once in a case. A button needs to be pressed for flash to pop up.
This is a good quality reasonably priced camera. If you like to travel, or if you just have big hands, then I would recommend this camera.
Most cameras these days are subject to that same craze that mobile phones had of trying to be as small as possible, regardless of how impractical that makes them to use. Therefore, if you don't want to buy a DSLR camera, but want something more substantial to hold, I recommend this.
The shape makes it easier to hold, and thus avoids the cheeky cameo from our finger. Its shape makes it bulky, especially when in a decent camera case, but this is in part due to the 4 AA batteries it takes. 1 camera store I went to swore against anything that took regular batteries, as a serious expense, but for someone who does like to travel, this is actually preferable. AA batteries are readily available in just about every country in the world, and it removes worry about the battery dying on top of a mountain. Just pop a few more in and you are ready to continue snapping.
The actual camera itself is good, with an impressive 15x zoom, and a whole host of functions beyond what most people are likely to use. However most of it is straight forward, so unless you take photography very seriously, you won't need to read the instructions.
Particularly useful is the panorama function, which allows you to capture those fantastic landscape viewsm through the use of taking three side by side photos and then "stitching" them together. It might sound like hard work but with this camera it couldn't be easier. Even after zooming in on yor photo 20 times on the pc, you may well still struggle to see where one photo ends and the next starts.
Summary: A good camera. If you want something for landscapes or a good zoom, give this serious consideration
