Price range is wrong, the cheapest I've seen this camera is about $400.00

i have been using it since January 2013. I love this camera as the smart option taking picture is really helpful. I seldom use the advance option which is taking time to set when you have to capture a moment/scene that will pass. i found out it's a bit difficult to get a good picture when it is in full zoom (21X) as our hands are not steady/stable. the software/applications are great too. we can connect to the internet via 3G or wifi which makes uploading pictures to the social media so easy and instantly. i am no longer using my Nikon which is bulky and heavy.

Just picked one up yesterday and started playing around with it. I'm pleasantly surprised at the quality of the pictures so far and the ease of use as well. I have seven or eight digital cameras (I lose track of the exact count) including two top of the line Nikon DSLR's and this is probably the easiest and most intuitive camera I've used. Will it ever replace either of my Nikons? No. But it's a hell of a lot smaller and easier to throw in a jacket pocket when I don't want to mess with something larger...and it has the added benefit of being always connected so I can share anything I take immediately (which I admittedly don't do often but is nice when you want it - with a camera much better than you get on the typical phone).

For an expensive toy it gets very high marks from me!

Daniel Kopial it does have flash. There is a button on the side that pops up the flash

Screen resolution is 1280x720 ... same screen as the Galaxy S3 has.
