This camera does it all

 

I bought the 952 right before I left for a trip to Portugal. I have an old camcorder but i needed to get the feel for this one. The pictures were great and I found that the digital picture format came in very handy everywhere I went. The sound pickup...

lightweight, compact, incredible sound

a bit pricey, need to update my PC to run the software provided.
