Pros: Good zoom, great image stabilization,
Cons: Slowish focusing

Great point-and-shoot camera. I've had it for a year and a half and have taken some great pictures with patience and practice. If you're looking for a inexpensive camera for documentation purposes, this will excel in that regard. If you practice you can get great pictures though. I'd recommend this camera to anyone who's looking into a point-and-shoot.

Biggest down side is that the focus can be very slow, especially in very low light. If you use it in manual mode, it focuses quite fast though. The annoying thing about that is that you have to change the settings manually (no duh). While this can get annoying, I've gotten quick at changing the settings when needed after using the camera for a year and a half.
