I Love it! It's easy to point and shoot and get quality pics. I believe if I learn all the functions I could take some really great pictures! I think it takes a different size memory card than most cameras and I'll probably go through a lot of batteries or have to buy rechargeable batteries eventually. It takes great pictures of fireworks and at night in general. All in all I think it's great, and will probably enjoy it even more after I read the manual and get all the correct settings down.
