5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: great camera, fast, responsive. only a dslr would be better, but this is more practical for a family camera 12 mega-pixel, ultra zoom, and hd video. i have two kids and this camera is usually fast enough to catch them in the act, not several seconds later

Cons: none at all

Other Thoughts: great camera, no regrets, it is definitely the next best thing to a dslr
