I have bought this brand for different cameras over the years and they work and last great. I will never pay $$ for a name brand proprietary battery again after using these.
I really like this camera. I took it on vacation and it took some great photos in daylight and night, as well as from a moving boat and a moving bus. I had upgraded from a Lumix DMC-FZ35, so it was pretty easy to learn how to use, but had some new features which made it even more useful. I love the articulating LCD! This is my go to travel camera now - sufficient zoom and wide angle for most of the shots I take as an amateur, and the battery life is great. I took over 1500 photos in two weeks so really put it thru the test. My only complaint is the SilkyPix software- still haven't figured it out and I can't open the RAW pictures in my version of Photoshop, but it may just be an upgrade is needed. This is a good compromise camera for those not ready for a full DSLR, but want more than a pocket camera.
I received this camera as a birthday gift to replace my T1i. It came with the 18-135 lens. This past summer we took a trip to Yellowstone NP with it and I only brought the one lens. The camera was fantastic. I shoot over 1000 pictures and over an hour of video with it with no problems. The video of Old Faithful came out a sharp as if I used a good video camera. The colors were spot on. On the stills, the camera captured all the color of the various steam pots, geysers, and pools in Yellowstone. The shots of the animals was without compare and again the color of the sky, trees, water, and anything else was perfect. I took a video of our 6 year old granddaughter being sworn in as a Junior Ranger. This was inside without any additional lighting and it came out crisp and clean. The audio was great also. I love the features, ease of use, and the performance of the camera. This camera will serve my needs for years to come.
Over the years, I have watched camcorders evolve from a huge expensive awkward machine into this sleek model. It can be operated using one hand if you need it. When recording something in a crowd, lift the camcorder up high, move the screen so you can see what you are recording, and go. You don't have to be 9 feet tall to get a good picture. I love this machine!
