Not only is this camera compact but it takes some of the best pictures i've ever seen. I am a web developer and the importance of taking great pictures that are good quality is a plus. I bought the camera about six months ago and so far I use just about every week. I've never had a problem with the camera not working the way it should and the pictures are clear with the best resolution ever. The camera is very easy to use and came with a warranty just in case I had a problem with it. There is enough space on the camera to hold a lot of images and I love the fact that I can easily load pictures onto my computer. My pictures look professional and I never have to put them through a photo editor. The camera is very durable and the batteries that I use with it seem to last a very long time. I recommend this camera to professionals or anyone that would enjoy using a camera that takes high quality pictures.
