Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Good Features all out door pictures came out fine. I used the soft touch for some of the portrates
Bad points:
Had a problem taking a distance photograph of my daughter graduation it came out dark. This could be due to the fact I was not used to the camera but when I bought it I thought it was just a point and shoot.
