Other Comments: Just bought this camera for a trip to Rome and couldn't be happier. It takes a bit of practice to find the best photo mode for the situation but I couldn't be more pleased with the results. For a beginner like myself, the quality for the price is fantastic. I took 670 photos and the battery wasn't even half way depleted.
