|The big zoom that fits in your pocket. Get ready. The STYLUS-9000 will blow you away. Its pocket-friendly body hides an amazing 10x wide-angle optical zoom, so you can take impressive shots in a flash. Not to mention advanced technology features like Dual Image Stabilization. The STYLUS-9000 is the camera that does it all.|
This camera and the accessories included are great! Soon after purchasing this camera, my wife and I went on a trip to Boston and got MANY excellent pictures!
I have had this camera for about six weeks and it works well, is easy to use and the image stabilization is OK, but not perfect for tele shots. I purchased a 2 gig memory chip for $15 and this allows me to take decent video. The battery will however run down on a video more than a few minutes and it must be recharged to allow the camera to run again. I don't have any interest in purchasing a special backup battery for this camera.
Wow, awesome camera.1/7/2011
The is by far the best, of 5, pocket cameras I have ever owned. The 10x optical lens is wonderful. The image stabilizer is so far flawless. Picture quality is perfect. It overcomes the wait between pictures by allowing you to take 3 fast frames with one shutter click. The in-camera panorama actually works. The battery life far exceeds the older versions. Slightly larger than the 5x lens camears, but that's to be expected. And it's a fantastic value.
so far, so good9/2/2010
no complaints. haven't played around with it much to test its full capabality, but from the basics, works great. great value. costs less than lesser models at other sites.
Great Camera, Great Price, A Little Heavy8/23/2010
This camera is exactly what I wanted. It has every feature I want including the 10X optical zoom. I needed a high quality camera that fits in my pocket. It is a little bulky and on the heavy side, but carrying it in my pocket still works. Although there are smaller lighter cameras for the same price, I did not find any that can do everything this one does.
