Being a complete novice, I plummed for this camera after a bit of research and advice from friends.
It's nice and light and the quality of the pictures, in my untrained eye seem really good.
Loads of settings for different situations. The menus are easy to use and the zoom is really good.
I only reason for 4 stars, rather than five is that it uses 4 AA batteries.
Not a big thing to be honest and hasn't really hampered me.
