    This camera is great because of the wide range of options it has. The zoom ability of this camera is truly amazing. It is able to even capture the hair on a person's face. The cropping ability of this camera is very unique as well. It is very easy to crop pictures to multiple sizes.

    This camera is great but it does have some down sides to it. It is very sensitive to camera shake and commonly captures blurry images. The shutter delay time is longer than most like but is easy to adapt to. It does not often capture over exposed images but can capture quite a few underexposed images.

    Because this camera has so many features, you can easily lose your way through the menus options. Making commonly used options more easily assessable is one improvement this camera could have.

    All in all, this is a great camera for beginner photographer to use.
