Advantages: Light weight, lots of functions, easy to use.
Disadvantages: hmmm, the only thing i can think is no internal memory. so make sure you have a memory card
I bought this camera to take photos for a course I was doing, and also because I love photography, and this camera was exactly what I wanted.
I have had it for almost a year, and I am still finding out new things that it can do, however this could be because I didn't read the manual before I set off snapping away.
All of the functions that it can do are useful and help to create beautiful high quality photos. I have printed out many of the photos I have taken on this camera, and the quality is outstanding.
The camera had a manual focus and autofocus function, which is helpful for if you want to take quick snaps or take time getting the perfect photo.
Once the battery is fully charged it lasts a very long time. and takes a lot of images.
Both lenses (the 18-55 and the pancake) have their own uses. the 18-55 is useful for everyday photography where you don't know what you'll be taking photos of, near or far. and the pancake is very useful for portraits andimages where a zoom isn't needed.
I would reccommend this camera to keen photographers who don't want to carry around a large heavy DSLR, but would like the same functions. and also buy come extra lens covers to protect them from dust and scratches while they're in a camera bag.
Oh, did i mention it can take 3D panaramic images, so if you have a 3D tv the photos look even better!
Summary: must have for a keen photographer
