Consumer review by: David (



I''m very happy with this purchase. It was a great choice for me; an amateur who wants a great camera/camcorder.

Solid feel; easy to use in the full auto setting; ability to go to manual contol for special shots

It takes a while to get used to the scroll bar. I would have prefered being able to ign the scroll function to the custome dial
