5 out of 5 eggsBest bridge on the market

Pros: This is the best bridge camera that you can buy today. Good lens, fantastic zoom, fast sensor, it feels very good in my hand, very good IS, nice new features that are missing from the competitors. It can take very good pictures at high ISO for a small sensor camera.

Cons: - There is no JPG compression to select. It has an Auto feature and sometimes it can affect the quality.
- Sometime is slow in the menus and startup time.
- Viewfinder sensor is to sensible.
- No ring for additional filters of lenses like macro or telextenders.

Other Thoughts: I hope in a future firmware (if, it will be) the speed in the menus can be increased and at least to lower the compression on JPG's.

But still, this is the best camera out there.

5 out of 5 eggsReally Happy with this camera!

Pros: Lots of modes to select from and while I have yet to understand some of the more complex modes, I have mastered the remainder and they all take great shots. Prior had my Kodak 10x zoom and thought I would miss this camera. I do not - the Sony is great value at price point.

Cons: The lens cover pops off when I power up and forget to remove this first. I have learned to treat this as a feature. The lens cap is so lightly lock in place, I fire it up and let it pop the cap and take this in stride. I see no risk or strain on the lens or motor.

Other Thoughts: Really like the 30x zoom. The burst mode is fantastic and still playing with timing of hitting the burst button to ensure I capture just the right point of action. I'd note I was reluctant to install the software bundled with the unit but I *really* like it - its quite nice and I use it as much as Picassa right now. The GPS feature is quite nice as well!
