    After one week's usage, my impressions are that this camera takes crisp clear photos with true colours. As good as or better than my Canon DSLR. Fantastic zoom capabilities.

    I am really enjoying using this camera. It streams easily to my ipad, but have had a challenge trying to get it to stream to Apple TV. The 50X lense is remarkable. Video footage is crisp and clear, and the pictures are amazing. I have not used all of the features yet, and probably will not use some of them ever as it is loaded with them, A nice touch is that it explains what each feature does on the screen. The Tilt screen is cool too. Too band it does not spin out to face you like the Nikon does to take self portraits. The tilt feature is very useful for taking pictures up high or down low. It has Two types of "Auto" that I am still experimenting with. Overall it is an excellent camera. I upgraded from a similar model that was 5 years old DSC H9,
