I have been wanting this camera for a very long time and finally got it as a Christmas gift. I love how it is a touch screen. It has so many setting on it that I am still learning new things about it almost every time i use it. I am the kind that does not like to ready manuals. I like to figure out and discover things on my own. This camera has a face tracking feature and can also let you know right away if it detects that one of your subjects may have blinked in the picture you just took, so you can take it again right away. It also has a unique feature where you can touch something moving on your screen and it follows it, as long as it stays within your viewing screen. It also has a feature that lets you write messages on the screen with your finger. This feature is nice BUT at the same time, when you use it, it looks like a kindergardener is who wrote the message. It does not come out to be very neat looking. I wish it had a key board you could actually type your message on it that way. There is literally only one button on this camera and it is the one to take the picture, which you really don't even hardly ever have to use. You can double tap the screen and take the picture that way (on most setting). This camera has many, many other awesome features. You should read up about every thing it offers and see if this is a camera for you. It is a bit pricey but well worth it.
