I've had this camera for three days but I've owned a lot of cameras so I will give you my initial impressions. (Note: Updates after one month of ownership are attached at the end)This is a great camera overall. I will talk about the features. You will probably find other reviews that will give you more details of photo and video quality but in a word the picture quality is excellent. I have a Canon T3i with a Tamron 18-270 lens. That was my favorite camera before the WB850. The T3i is more fun a ... nd easier to use but it has one big drawback. You can't put it in your pocket. It's big and it's heavy and travelling with it can be a pain. So I sought another pocket camera. I have been using a Canon TX1 as my pocket camera when I didn't want to carry the T3i which was becoming more frequent. The TX1 is also a great camera but it is 7MP and only shoots 720 video. I wanted a pocket camera that shot full HD. To be honest, I think the megapixel spec is overblown and overemphasized,... More >

I am not a photographer, but I like to travel and play with my camera taking creative photos. This camera has not disappointed.On the positive side it takes very clear pictures, and is easy to use in the smart mode. I have had the camera for a week now and have used it at my son's college graduation and a trip to Disneyland. The zoom was amazing at graduation. I was able to get sharp photos from a long distance some if which were in low light.It also excels in low light. Both at the graduati ... on and Disneyland I was amazed at the pictures I took that required no flash. I really prefer natural light to flash enhanced pictures. I took many indoor pictures and never used or needed the flash. When I did need the flash I appreciate that it is popped up manually. Once it is popped up you can set it on automatic. I have read several reviews of other cameras where people were frustrated that the flash placement was inconvenient and it often did not work because... More >

In addition to a lot of videos about this camera on Youtube, I am simply amazed at what this camera does right out of the box, so easy to use and this Amazon bundle package is a pretty good deal-The picture quality is outstanding and the "zoom" phenominal!And yes, when connected to WiFi- there are a number of ways you can email or send your photos or videos to friends, your PC, Facebook etc and even your Smartphone.I have installed the free App from the Android Market "Microsoft Sky Drive" on my ... Smartphone (Samsung Epic 4G) and set up the free account and this allows you to sync not only your photos, (from the camera) but documents as well to your Smartphone and PC simultaneosly.....wow!(and it is so user friendly!)The only cons I could possibly think of with this camera-1. Dropping it....(would be devastating....buy a padded case to protect it)and2. It is a little pricey, but you get what you pay for....and this... More >
