I do a lot of photo shooting for various reasons...Birthdays, Weddings of friends/Family, holidays etc etc
This, for the price, has to be one of the most feature packed and excellent cameras ive ever had.
The picture quality is excellent.
It uses Alkaline disposable batteries, which are easy to replace
The 720p recording is very very good and clear
It has an excellent pic viewer on the back
There are many modes you can shoot in with varying results
uses SDHC high quality cards so you can get loads of pix/films on
We used it on holiday recently in Dhubai and all the pix/films came out amazing! we also used it in a friends wedding and the pictures were vibrant and beautiful.
Dont hesitate, buy this camera!!
