Advantages: Brilliant screen, Amazing quality, Runs off batteries, Has HD video, Has Tracking auto focus. Price.
Disadvantages: Slightly heavy, No internal memory.
I bought this product two months ago as I decided I wanted to get into a new hobby, and photography seemed perfect for me.
Although I have never had an extensive range of camera's, the picture quality on this camera is truly mind blowing, and that's all you'd expect at 14 MP (Mega Pixels). The camera has some very handy and impressive features, such as a 24 x Optical Zoom, which allows you to zoom in a great distance without loosing too much quality like you would with other cameras.
As I'm quite new to photography, I decided to buy an affordable camera, and the price of this camera is amazing for what you receive! I bought the product for £149.99 off Amazon, even though it's on there for £119.99, so get it while it's cheap! I promise you that you will NOT regret the decision a single bit.
The camera has a 3 inch LCD screen which is great for viewing the high quality picture you have just taken, as well as having a USB port so you can conveniently transfer your picture to and from you computer and laptop!
The product comes with a shoulder strap, a lens cap, a lens cap cord, a CD-ROM, as well as an Owner's Manual which is really helpful to amateur photographers such as myself!
The camera has a built in feature known as "Tracking Auto Focus", this feature allows you to capture dynamic close-ups as this function keeps fast moving subjects in the frame and in focus, this is helpful if taking pictures of events such as an air show, a football match or horse riding.
As well as taking very high quality pictures, this camera also allows you to shoot 720p HD movie capture at 30fps, this makes for some smooth movies which can be connect to HD ready TV's for instant playback using a HDMI output.
Another great feature is the fact that this camera doesn't require any special batteries or charging every hour or so, because this camera runs off simple AA x Batteries which can be bought from almost any store.
The camera also seems to work great in any type of atmosphere or lighting situation such as at night time or in other dark areas.
The only two downsides I can see to this camera is: One, the camera is slightly heavy which can lead to your hand shaking if trying to get that perfect still picture, although this can be solved easily using the shoulder strap which comes with the product. The other problem, which to me is quite a major one, is the fact that it requires SD (San Disc cards), this is because the camera has NO internal memory. This is such a big problem because unless you buy a SD card with a high memory storage, it can lead you to having lots of SD cards scattered around the house, not knowing which one is which. SD cards can also be quite expensive on top of the price of the camera.
Summary: An amazing camera with an amazing price!
