Bad: leggero lo sportellino usb
Comment: Splendida! qualità immagini, sopratutto nel tele, stabilizzatore ottimo, rifiniture, estetica della fotocamera, prezzo vantaggiosissimo.
Good: Good long optical zoom, easy to hold and operate, nice and compact, some editing functions such as the useful in-camera cropping, plenty of picture viewing modes, incorporated complete help with button specific help as well, some effects options in one mode, incorporated automatic panorama mode as well as manual panorama (which makes it easier), PC panorama mode (which I haven't had a play with yet), manual and auto white balancing, shot timer option, portable
Bad: no manual focus or manual exposure, sometimes get silhouetting effect unintentionally but that may be fixable by tweaking the settings, not as slim as some cameras if that's what you want (doesn't bother me), sometimes skies look lighter than they are on a sunny day, no foldering system that I can find though automatic date foldering
Comment: Overall I like it, especially the long zoom (the longest I've found in a compact) and portability. I also sometimes use the long zoom as a sort of telescope to work out what things are that are too far away for me to see otherwise
I previously owned a DSLR and although it had more manual options such as manual focus, I found that the poor portability, i.e. weight and size, became a problem in most situations. Also the zoom was only 5x whilst making a very heavy lens and I found that too short for a lot of situations.
However, I find that the automatic panorama functions struggles when photographing large open areas such as the sea as it cannot find any objects to use as a guide and the manual panorama option does not work very well when hand-holding the camera (i.e. no tripod) and some situations aren't shown correctly, such as blue sky.
Comment: It is impressive .I've already tried it by myself ..really this camera is great ....
