Great overall with a small gripe

Not that this is important, but it didn't allow me to give it a five, in auto mode, the flash sometimes will not fire, even in what I see as very low light, but does come out ok without it, just a little white balance issue sometimes but I seldom use the flash. I don't know what all the talk about image quality is (must be issues with their particular cameras) but I have printed to 8X10 and everything is tack sharp. Sure you can see some artifacts at 100%crop on a computer, but this is not a 4k dollar DSLR. The movie capability is awesome, and the zoom is great, with clarity throughout. Definitely a keeper.

After reading the write-up, especially on stabilization, and using it for about two months in various conditions I was disappointed in sharpness and clarity in comparison with similar types.

Great camera

I took my new SH-1 on an African Safari. Image quality and zoom were outstanding. The Wi-Fi download worked fine. Only glitch I had was camera taking unintended photos when touch screen bumped my chest while on neck strap.

Could have been great!

Excellent build quality. Great battery life. Easy wifi connection. A fast camera with nice shot to shot times. Very good image stabilization. Everything I wanted with one exception.

Where does it fail? IMAGE QUALITY. It's terrible. Way too much jpeg or noise compression artifact. Images look like they are smeared. I'm sorry, but other cameras with this size sensor produce MUCH better IQ.

If they would fix the image quality issue, maybe through a firmware update if possible, I'd buy it again in a heartbeat!.
