I had had a Fuji before and loved it and wanted an upgrade. This camera is easy to use and takes great pictures. The problems are that it needs a view finder. While taking pictures in the desert I could not see what I was “shooting”. Also, the instructions came in DVD format. That is kind of hard to use when you are traveling and don’t have computer access.
Sample photos and examples, image galleries and user pictures, movie / video clips and footage
There are two images in the collection, a head-&-shoulders portrait and a landscape.
