I am just getting started with photography and I love this camera. I also love the fact I can record HD movies with it also. The bundle I got this with from Walmart.com was great for the money. If you are looking to get into photography, this is a great camera to start with!
After trying the newest Canon model with 50X zoom, I decided the 35X is a better choice. The 50X seems to be \"over-zoomed\", causing delays in focus and a bit of peripheral graininess to pictures at maximum settings.
