Used this for a family shoot today with great results. So easy to point and click but the results are truly excellent. The pictures are sharp and the colors truly vivid. The controls once you have got used to them are pretty intuitive though mostly I use the auto settings. Scrolling back through your shots is easy
Positives are its ease of use and brilliant outdoor results. On the negative side you have to be wary of the supplied lenses on close ups. That is do not get to close to subject and watch out for shadows indoors because the flash does not push out enough light. You nee an attachment flash which can be slotted to the front of the camera, which flashes an extra light off the ceiling to get the model shots. One tip I have is to get the results printed by a professional company. Here in the UK I use Snappy Snaps rather than a home printer for your best shots, in particular enlargements produce truly excellent results.
Cannot really fault this camera though I am a bit of a newbie.
