I really love this camera. Right out of the box it takes great pictures. The controls are easy to use. I have been taking a lot of pictures of my grandchildren and the short shutter lag means that I don't miss anything. I also like the zoom feature. It has a 3x optical zoom that is accesable next to the shutter button. I have printed out several 8x10 pictures with no loss in quality. Overall I don't think you could find a better camera for near the price.
