I take photos of meetings and events for a political campaign and I take pictures every day in various environments. This camera is very easy to use and is fairly lightweight. I like the tripod that it came with because it is bendable and fits in my pocket. The bag has enough room for the camera and everything it comes with, plus my small notebook and a pen, so I don't have to carry an extra bag when I am working at an event. There are multiple settings to adjust to any lighting situation and are named things like nighttime or beach or indoor party, etc, so they are easy to remember. The panoramic mode is my favorite one to use because it captures an entire room of people easily. The camera lens can be taken off quickly and easily and the camera turns on quickly if I have to capture something in a hurry. Overall, I really love this camera for work because it gets the job done well, so there is minimal editing at the end of the day.
The product itself is great. Overstock.com was terrible with their ability to ship the correct item. I ordered the camera with the bundle included and I received only the camera the first time, and it was blue, not silver. When I called customer care they advised me to return the camera and they would ship out the correct item that supposed to include the camera with the extra bonus pack. When I received the second shipment, it contained only the camera again in blue. I contacted customer care again and they were supposed to ship out the bonus pack to me. When I received that order it only contained 3 of the 6 items listed. Finally, I contacted customer again and they finally just gave me back $XX so I could go buy the missing items from ********. Customer care team was very professional dealing with this problem, but their warehouse was absolutely terrible with shipping the correct items.
I had two electronics "nerds" help set up the camera and they couldn't figure it out. It should not be this difficult to understand the programming. The step-by-step is missing steps and a month later we still can't figure out how to send photos. Every use results in us finding (by accident) something new, but since it was by accident, we can't always duplicate it.
On the positive side, the 30x zoom is amazing and since I bought it in red, the camera is easy to find in my bag.
This is a really good camera for the price. It's very easy to navigate and use, and I love the front screen that makes taking selfies easy. The only problem I have with the camera is opening the latch to the battery and microSD compartment. It's really hard for me to open because it's so tight (which it should be to keep the water out). But it keeps the water out, so I'm not complaining. I bought the purple one, and it's really pretty.
