    40 X zoom is great, easy to set up and controls are all on the right side of the back. Pop up flash is not sufficient in extremely low light.

    This is a fantastic zoom point &shoot camera. The directions give you extensive choices on the settings but just using auto gives you great shots even 2 miles away!

    This camera has all the bells and whistles, but if you just want a camera for everyday use it is great for that too. Crisp clear photos, super zoom capabilities, light-weight and just feels right.

    I bought this camera for our 15 day cruise on the Panama Canal. I wanted a great zoom that is easy to use and focus. Even during a few rough times at sea this camera focused and stabilized scenery from far away, Glad I made this choice in a camera!

    Extremely excellent point and shoot for the price. Takes quality shots, the zoom is amazing, the 4k video is such a plus I'm very happy with this I wanted to start my photography journey with this point and shoot then move up to Dslr, Icle or mirrorless but also wanted a quality in my pocket quick point and shoot I got that and more with this camera I'm very pleased. As a beginner I'm already taking some great shots with this point and shoot.

    This camera has most if not all of the program features that DSLR cameras have, but uses a fixed lens. The zoom goes to 40 times which is awesome. The quality of photographs it is capable of is as good as any of the base to upper mid level Nikons or Canons. The articulating screen is a big plus also!

    At first I resisted but now this camera has been worth the money. The pictures are sharp. The zoom is great. It is a little heavy for a small digital camera but it is worth the weight.

    Love the pictures this camera takes. It has 20.3 mega pixels and a great zoom. The only problem I have is where to hold it. If you hold it on the right side, which is what I am used to because of my previous camera, you need to be careful where you place your fingers or you are hitting other buttons which takes the camera out of shooting mode into other functions.

    I've had Canon point and shoot cameras before, and this operates just like the others. However, I really like the optical zoom and the image stabilizer - great features that enhance the value of the camera. Also, the tilt screen in the back is nice to have so far as well. I still have to try out the wifi connectivity to my phone, but assuming that's easy to us, this camera will be a great find for years to come

    Great choice for my vacation trip to Israel, 2 weeks out and had this camera on my hip all the time.Great pictures taken on this whole trip, it was excellent having 40X zoom. ! Thing was tough also fell and dropped it while the lens was open, after cleaning it up, things functioned 100%. Left it at the auto focus most of the trip, before buying this I compared it to a half a dozen different cameras it stood out from the others with quality pictures. Really solid feeling camera. It has a lot of focus options considering how compact it is.
