VERY GOOD OVERALL YOU CAN SPEND MORE BUT I DON'T THINK YOU WILL GET A BETTER PICTURE,AND 400 ZOOM IS PLENTY SINCE YOU CAN'T USE IT ALL ANYWAY.HAS ALL THE FEATURES YOU COULD WANT.

PRICE WAS RIGHT $100 S LESS THAN OTHER MODELS,SEEMS TO BE VERY WELL MADE,VIDEO IS EXCELENT

STILL PICTURES ONLY GOOD FOR COMPUTER DISPLAY OR SMALL PRINTS,400 ZOOM AS WITH OTHER CAMERAS IS NOT REALLY USABLE
