superb camera. stabilising system best I've ever seen. camera small and light weight well balanced hence it is easy to shoot with the camera handheld. On the negative side, the settings are controlled via touch screen display. The latter is however not very sensitive and at times not easy to control specially in bright light. An alternative Menu and select buttons would have made operation easier. All in all an excellent and amazing camera. Top value for money.
