This is by far the best digital camera we have owned! We have had it for several years and never had any problems or error readings. It never takes a bad picture. In fact, it takes better pictures with available light than with flash in many instances. Macro and close up shots are crisp and clean. We take a lot of garden shots and the blossom colors are just spectacular on these photos. I like that it holds tons of photos so it is great for take-along on vacation or all day outings. It also uses standard AA batteries with long life in the camera, so I never have to go looking for special expensive batteries for this camera either. Downloads are quick and easy to a laptop as are video clips for easy editing. The camera body itself is rugged, will take a knockabout or drop without damage and is simply a great all around, all purpose camera.
