Terrible camera...just like the other review I had high hopes with this camera and am now super disapointed. The image is really grainy and no matter what ISO you try it still looks very very bad. I played with it for a while last night and could not get it to take a single shot that was good or at least better than my 4 year old very basic samsung digital camera. It glares in every kind of lighting I tested and the videos....oh the videos....I have my doubts it is really HD! They almost looked like they had a grainy/old style video filter added purposely to it! I bought this camera because we have a baby on the way and I thought it would be nice to have some good solid pictures and HD videos but I am returning it today for sure. Stay away from this camera...dont be fulled by the brand and good price it carries!

We just bought this camera yesterday after reading all the hype about it for the past 3 weeks. We waited for this particular camera to be released since it sounded awesome. Well, I'm returning it today. First thing you'll notice is the images on the screen are really grainy. Indoor shots weren't coming out very nice either. I took four shots back to back, and only one came out nice. Images come out blurred, grainy, and sometimes washed out. Not every picture was bad, but it took multiple shots to get one right. We futzed around with the settings, and not much helped. Macros is also pretty awful. I couldn't get any decent close ups without the image coming out blurred. For a point and shoot, this camera takes too much messing around with. There's alot of wildlife where we live, and that's part of the reason we want a GOOD camera. I'm pretty sure that mama bear isn't going to hold still while I take multiple shots hoping for one good picture.
This isn't an entirely horrible camera, but there's better one's out there that cost less. The s8100 and s9100 are the previous models, and seem to work much better. It's unfortunate, because I really thought this camera would be "the one", but I'm not going to spend over $200 for a camera I only kinda like. Maybe other people will have better luck with theirs, but this was my experience. I would highly suggest testing this camera before buying it. Also, make sure you buy it from somewhere that will make it easy if you decide to return it. No point in waiting 3 days for it to show up from an online seller, and then you have to ship it back. Boo.
