    I bought this camera for my daughter-in law. She is a newbie to photography. She really likes it, the camera is working very well & it's perfect for what she's using it for. She shoots her son playing soccer.

    The big zoom and high resolution make from excellent shots. It is versatile and adaptable. Multiple shootings modes for that perfect shot. Tripod ready.

    Great camera for the price. Good starter camera, not sure how much use I will get out of it. Not a big camera buff.
