I believe that I've shot a bit more than 1,600 photos with it so far.
Do I like it? You better believe I like it!
I love the panoramic feature for more than one reason. Sometimes there is just such a great sky and scenery that this just seems fitting. The shot above was done at 120 degrees.
How about the manual controls? Well, I was in the valley and I used a 4X ND filter and set my shot up as follows. F11 at 10 seconds. My focus was the lone brown leaf in the very small water falls. I used a little Gorilla Pod and the timer to set off the camera.
I was more than pleased. This is not the best shot I could do with this camera, but I know I can do a nice 'dreamy' waterfall shot with it now given the right circumstances. This photo was not edited!
I spoke before about the macro feature, this is a great option with the flip up screen.
I don't find myself leaving this camera around home anymore.
Yes, it has draw backs. It does do the best in terrible light conditions, but then what camera really does? For a hiker and hobbyist, it is a perfect choice.
