  • Lightweight, excellent image stabilisation, inexpensive, powerful zoom
Cons
  • Difficult to focus in low light. Very difficult for 'in flight' shots (slow to focus and track moving object)
If you want to try your hand at wildlife photography but can't afford the DSLR and large lens combinations you see everyone else using then I recommend you try this camera. I didn't want to carry several kilos of kit around and wanted to take all sorts of shots from landscape, family groups macro and bird photography. Someone told me about this camera so I bought it and I have been delighted and amazed at its capabilities. I have posted some links to shots in the gallery I've taken on this camera. Because of the relatively low cost I now know people with expensive DSLR and lenses that carry one of these in their bag as well!
Here are a some of my photos using this camera.
