This is a very cool "prosumer" camera, with an amazing zoom! The special effects filters I would normally ignore, but found them to be quite fun once I got playing with them. Stereo sound recording is kind of cool, haven't tested it much, don't do much video, but it's a very nice thing to have. Quite full featured, works well in lowlight. Completly outranks the previous Konica Minolta DiMAGE A2 which got wet and died. Kinda glad it did, this is much better quality. I WISH it had an external flash shoe, or connection! like the Konica.
To be fair, I expect a lot from a camera. This is an awesome little package that can take a nice photo but after reviewing my Christmas snap shots, I find that most of the candid moments are missed or fuzzy. The camera itself is very attractive and sleek and has good features. I like that it is so small but that also means it is a little difficult to hang onto! There aren't any rubberized pieces to help "grip" the camera. The delay from pressing the shutter release button to the actual release of the shutter is a major reason I am returning this camera.
Overstock quickly shipped this camera to me after an order verification which is totally understandable! This camera did not come with a lens, however, I am using it with old lenses I've collected in the past such as m42's and M mount lenses. There are plenty of adapters that you can purchase to use on this amazing camera! The menu does take some getting used to but eventually becomes second nature and focusing is a total breeze! If you're looking for a pro-sumer digital camera and want something a little above the rest, get this now! Thank you, Overstock!
