Review by: Mekon
Lacation: Colorado Springs,Colorado
Type of Sport: Point and shoot cameras
Review Date: 04-16-2007
Cost Performace

Posses excellent lens with great focus with heavy bulky zoom i.e. 400mm lens and easy to balance; user friendly than most cameras. With the current price I don't think that you can match this piece with other product's features. It has light weight and good zooming ability to 12x and 5-Megapixel. Very good image quality by sharp focal lengths.
