Best camera for vacation

by Dave on 8/27/2012

I wanted a compact camera with ability of a dslr. I found that this camera has that capability. I was able to enjoy my vacation without the bulk of a dslr.

So far happy with the camera

on 12/2/2012

While I have not taken a lot of pictures they seem very good. I was a little concern with some of the reviews regarding the Wi Fi feature of this camera but it is easy to set up and works great. So far happy with this purchase.
