This is a perfect camera for the person who just wants to take some pictures of fun times. The pictures turn out with great quality nearly all the time. It has many differnt options for capturing the look you want in your photos. The screen is nice and big so you do not have to squint to see your images. Sometimes pictures taking in a very close zoom turn out fuzzy and there are a couple of Best shot features that I was unable to figure out. It is a very stylish and beautiful looking camera, something you can be proud to use. With 5 mega pixels you can take many shots and still have that opportunity of blowing up that fabulous shot you may take. It was very easy to load these images onto my computer to store and edit. Overall for a person who is not a formal photographer this is a perfect camera for. you.
