Criteria Comments Rating
  • Image quality good dynamic range capabilities and great aperture at max focal lenght great!
  • Video quality 1080p its a standard now, it takes decent videos with possibility to zoom in it with the lens good
  • Battery life the only big cons: 1000mAh let me took 200shots at first use, I've ordered a 1400mAh from ebay, I'll see how better is so-so
  • Design and form factor just awesome! great!
  • Durability everything is metal and really nice to touch great!
  • Speed (start-up time, lag) quite good, considering also my SDHC is an old class 4 good
  • Ease of use for a newbie: EXR auto mode does everything for you. then you can start digging in all the nice settings good
Detailed review
I read a lot of reviews for this camera all positives but also criticizing some aspects such as the price, personally i was lucky to grab it for 100€ less than the european average, which was great. I've been using for a week and I'm pretty satisfied with it. What I really like is the image quality, size and weight which are awesome you can fit in a pocket, and materials and design. I would definetly suggest to buy it and maybe consider the possibility of spending additional 10$ for a 1400mAh battery.
