We purchased this camera to have a nice camera that is easy to walk around with and that can take video. The photos are nice and clear, but after you take a photo, you must wait about 3-4 seconds while the camera writes the info to the card. That's not good if you're shooting any kind of action (like my two year old). For stills and posed shots, this camera performs nicely. The video, however, is not good at all. The video image quality is not bad at all, but the audio is dreadful. Only the person holding the camera can be heard, not the subject of the video if the subject is more than 8 or so feet away. If you zoom in or out during the video, all you can hear is the sound of the lens motors moving the lens, which is very annoying. Also, while moving in or out, the camera ALWAYS lost focus and had to regain it once I stopped zooming the lens. If you're looking for a camera that is limited to taking high quality photos of still or slow moving objects, this is a great camera. If you're trying to capture on the move subjects or video, I suggest a different camera.
