I've had this camera for about 5 years now and use it a LOT. It takes high quality pictures - look great up to 5x7. If you go up to 8x10 you're going to lose a little quality if you end up cropping the picture- but I rarely print past 4x6. It was easy to make the shift from using...Read the full review →

When it was built (and since really) I've noticed alot of the competitors to this model are sluggish to zoom and focus. The accuracy of the viewfinder is spot on. What you...Read the full review →
Took decent pictures, even though it was a bit bulky. After about 3 years, it would randomly start taking black photos (about every other one), then more often.
