After spending months researching and looking on sites for a camera I could easily carry around to take pictures at conventions and short videos as well, I finally decided on this model and I love it. Have been using it for taking pictures at home and on the road since August and have had no problem getting beautiful pictures to share on my blog and other websites. The options and settings on this camera are amazing. I love that I can connect to my phone easily through wifi and even take pictures that way. Bonus! The flip out screen helps with taking selfies and video. Just overall a very good and versatile camera.
