I love using this camera. It is small, yet does everything the big guys do without the weight. I enjoyed using it on a biking trip, and look forward to using it next week in NY. It takes some amazing shots, I love the creative setting. Everyone has commented on the photos I've posted using that setting. I don't feel that I'm missing out on anything using this camera. I get to take action shots, and then pick the ones I like or use the one the camera picks. Great buy!
