This is a decent/average camera. If all you want to do is have it for family events and things like that, it's perfect. Nice quality and very easy to work. For professional photography, it's a little too basic. It doesn't have all the features you would want. I like this, but the focus is sometimes wonky. Also, I've had this camera for about two years and after some time, the dial with the arrows is now loose. I have to force it into the right position to navigate around. Overall, it is a decent camera and the pictures are very high quality.
