Absolutely Brilliant Camera
I got this camera to travel around South America. I normally use an SLR but wanted a tough camera that also had an amount of manual control and was not crazy expensive. This one fitted the bill perfectly. I put it through its paces, whilst walking down a mountain with it in my back pocket I fell and ripped open the pocket it was in and my hand and the camera just had a minor scratch. I've taken it in the sea, to the desert, under the Iguazu falls and in the river Amazon and its still working perfectly.
The photo quality has surprised me for such a small camera, some of the shots it has taken are stunning. So much so family members have printed them to canvas and put them up in their homes. I do a fair bit of HDR photography and this has a HDR mode but you can also Auto Bracketing 1/3 -1EV step, Max +/-1EV, 3 frames if you want to process manually later which is a real bonus. I'll let the photos speak for themselves, here are some of the better ones:...
