"Major win here."

While the 24-70 seems good, I can’t wait for a new Nikon . The lens adapter works seamlessly with no performance penalty. Auto works well for me once outdoors or in well lit rooms. I did buy some rechargeable batteries to use in it. Everything about it is solid and satisfying.

"The viewer works great."

Me and my husband have planned a trip to Bahamas. This is the perfect compromise camera for me. Lastly, the complaints about battery life are totally valid. I feel that it takes better pictures than the DSC-HX50. I did buy some rechargeable batteries to use in it.

Simple to figure out how to use, even for beginning photographers. I'm impressed with how Nikon incorporated it seamlessly. During my search, I discovered that the Nikon was about to be released.

"Very nice design."

However, while it was still working, it took great pictures and was very easy to use. The zoom truly is extraordinary! I did buy some rechargeable batteries to use in it. Only downside is recovery after each shot, however rest of features make up for it. Great deal on this camera package that includes lots of extras.

"All on Auto."

Panasonic DMC-FZ1000 Final Thoughts

"Great clarity."

5 seconds to wait for auto focus is not going to kill me. Panasonic, however, has always had colors that are exactly as our eyes see it! Personally, I preferred it to have a wider lens, say 28mm equivalent. Just ordered my soft box lights. Excellent quality photos too.

"Keep it simple!"

I will update this report once I have used it more. The zoom is incredible as well. Overall good camera and value but needs improvements in the hardware. The recommended solution is to send in the camera for cleaning. It wont replace a DSLR but it comers pretty close.

I would like a firmware update to fix that. One thing that worries me is the little flap that covers the USB connector. Everything about it is solid and satisfying. Auto works well for me once outdoors or in well lit rooms. Just ordered my soft box lights.

"The battery was awesome."

I bought this camera right before I went on vacation to Hawaii. Love that a strap, case and lens cover came with it, among other things. In fact, the very first photo I took was indoors of my wife. The different features are amazing and the pics came out really great. Me and my husband have planned a trip to Bahamas.

"Love my new Sony DSC-HX99!"

Where this Sony DSC-HX99 really shines though is the video recording oddly enough. During my search, I discovered that the Sony DSC-HX99 was about to be released. Me and my husband have planned a trip to Bahamas. It's got pretty much everything I could want in a Childrens Point & Shoot Digital Camera. I have already taken it and my P900 to three photo shoots.

"Just kidding."

I recommend this camera to those looking for an all in one camera. I'm impressed with how Sony incorporated it seamlessly. Maybe it is for a small POS. My old SX700 that was serviceable for years finally gave up and failed. It’s taken its place as my go to camera, which is what I intended it for.

"Easy point and shoot."

Mid-afternoon typically required swapping in a charged battery. I have big hands, but it still fits well into my palm--very comfortable to hold. I feel that it takes better pictures than the DSC-HX50. It took me a while to figure it out. I needed a Childrens Point & Shoot Digital Camera with a sensor larger than what is on my smartphone.

They make it look like I know what I'm doing. This camera far exceeded my expectations. It's very easy to clean up noise in postprocessing by using noise ninja or neat image.
