When my old Sony Mavica no longer would read the discs, I started looking for a new camera. I wanted something that had the same features as the old one and had video capability. I must say this camera is all that and more, it is packed with great features. The HD video was awesome and the mic does not pick up that annoying camera hum while filming. Pictures are clear/sharp and the many setting options (including panorama) will keep you busy for days. The macro zoom takes awesome close ups. I love the fact that you can manually adjust everything (like an SLR), but has auto settings like smile detection, tracking focus and scene settings. Overall, I have been extremely pleased with this camera. The only thing I would say is that the manual does not explain all the features that the camera has, however, you can download the full manual on the website. It does not have a hot shoe for flash attachment, but the built in flash works well. It does have a tripod mounting hole on the bottom and uses (4) AA batteries, so you do not have to wait to charge up before using the camera. This is a great choice for the price!

Rated 2 out of 5 by MoreThanBogus Expected MUCH better
1. The Autofocus won't stay focused during movies and when taking still shots it should be already focused before the button is pressed - not refocus every time.
2. The battery life is too short and there is no connection for an external battery pack.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JEROSS Slow camera
I am a camera nut..love taking pictures at all events. My husband bought this camera for me as a surprise. I am so disappointed in this gift. Each shot has slow reaction. Push button and the camera closes for several seconds to get next shot. Reaction time is compounded by the blurry photos focus time is so long. I like a AA battery camera. This one eats batteries and you must carry batteries with you to a birthday party just to take a hour photo shoot.... Features add complications that cause more problems than they are worth...Zoom does work quickly going in and out... Photos are good quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jcknoell Good camera
I like the camera but find that it lacks some of the versatility of the H50 such as being able to set the focus length, and a sports setting. Auto focus seems to take a long time and not always focused on subject matter.
I do like the greater telephoto ability. Generally a good camera but lacking some of the versatility of the H50.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Out2Lunch Alkaline batteries? Really?
The camera takes o.k pictures and is pretty straight forward to use, but the fact that it doesn't use a rechargeable battery pack caused me to return it. disappointing

Rated 5 out of 5 by DonAtLive I started in manual mode and tested flash response
I will be looking at this camera as number one because it reminded me of the time when I actually thought about the photograph I was planning to take. More pictures is just that more review adjustment and excitement instead of more quality and fulfilment. I will be looking at using this 35x with a tripod if the motion of the hand can be overcome how much more so the wind etc. I had taken photos with thought and preparation before so now it is back to basics and fun.

Rated 4 out of 5 by spanky Very nice camera
I bought this for my son for his high school graduation present and am very impressed by the quality of pictures. The only problem I have with it is the finish on the outside of the camera itself is ugly and the camera is somewhat clunky and awkward feeling.
