5 out of 5 eggsDisney World

Pros: Took this to Disney World, it took incredible pictures. The Zoom is unbelievable. the compact design is great, fit right in my small fanny pack. Used the WIFI feature and uploaded all my pictures to my sisters I-PAD. The WIFI is worth it if you want to share with family members. This camera is also a great toy in that there is so many features, it is fun to learn about them and then try them out!!

Cons: Nothing yet, the pictures are unreal.

Other Thoughts: This is a very powerful camera, do yourself a favor and each week learn 1 new feature, it can be really fun.
