Good: Easy to use, Auto function is amazing, Fairly small, so can fit in pocket , The video recorder has a zoom, Amazing video recording quality, Amazing build quality, Supported a 16GB memory card
Bad: The flash is weak for night shots, but this is purely my opinion, The video zoom is kind of loud, and you can hear it when you do video recording, which is a put off
Comment: Only had this camera for a few days but initial reactions are that it is great! The quality of the pictures are amazing, so clear even on full zoom, and the HD video is brilliant - the fact that you can zoom while you are shooting a video is something I have never seen before on a camera. There are some really funky modes that take great fun photos like fisheye effect, and I love the colour accent which keeps one colour and makes everything else black and white.
There are also loads of manual modes for the more serious photographer - I don't know how to use these yet, but hopefully with a bit of practice I will improve my photography skills!
The flash does pop up when the camera is turned on but unlike one of the other reviewers I don't find it an issue. You can push the flash down if you don't want to use it, but you can still hold the camera quite comfortably if it is up.
I'm going on safari later this year and can't wait to use the 14x zoom to get really up close and personal with the animals.
I'd definitely recommend it.
*** If you will buy this camera I suggest (Off More 40%) at: amazon.co.uk/dp/B00375N4O4/?tag=reviews.cnet.co.uk-21
Good: Zoom on the camera is amazing and the picture quality is professional
Bad: Only one problem is the positioning with the flash on the top of the camera
Comment: This is one of the best cameras i have ever bought, at first i thought it wouldn't be that good because of all the bad reviews about it but what bad things the review websights say about this camera is not true this camera is the best i have ever had.
