So far, so good! I make YT family videos, and I needed something less heavy than my expensive cameras. All I need to be able to find is a wind reducer (has nothing to do with this particular camera, just for one like this in general) but I like the pop up flash and view finder. The LCD screen is great. Wish it could turn in like my more expensive one for protection, but I will buy a protector for some kind of help with that. I have little kids, so it's hard. Bought the protection though, LOL. Love this upgrade from the $265 lower end model thus far. Not real heavy and bulky, and it gets the job done! Pics and vids come out great! I will update when I use it more! PS- holds a nice long charge, which I NEED!
