Have not enjoyed this camera at all and would say it's infact worse then my malfunctioning Samsung PL57. Brought this as its replacement but for indoor use it's been very poor,dark pictures with flash on or off random shadows and blurring and grainy/noise. Have tried autos, pre set scenes, manually adjusting ISO, AF, Auto Tracking, Face Detection and anything else to no avail, read the manuals, tried the help guides its at best poor unless you hand is super stable, object completely static and you're able to try 4 times to get the photo. IMPOSSIBLE with young children being the subject.
Very poor, even if I am an amateur, I do own an Olympus E450 DSLR and I get on fine with that! Most camera's I tend to get on with right away but this.... no, intend to reutrn to store tomorrow.
