I am so in love with this camera!! The 50x zoom is GREAT for long distance shots. The photos always come out clear and perfect. I would recommend this camera to new photoagraphers as well as experienced photographers!
It took me months to decide on which camera I was going to buy. I kept going between a DSLR like the Rebel or a point and shoot. It wasn't until I found this one, that I finally felt I found everything I wanted in one camera. It is easy enough to open the box and take stunning pictures, but it has a tonne of more advanced options as well. I particularly like the incredible zoom power it has (this was one of the turning points for me) and the video it takes is quite nice too. It also has a fantastic swivel screen that can let you see from many different angles (think crowded auditorium/concert with many heads in the way...simply hold it in the air and you can swivel the screen so you can still get the shot and not a random pic of the sky or back of someone's head). Great overall camera and good bang for your buck!
