i have found this camera very easy to use, although somewhat limeted. i bought it for shooting crew(rowing) from moving boats and wanted a camera that was easy to use and not have to think about it while flying down a river at high speeds. i like its easy to use controls, however, i think it would be well served with a few things added: a spot meter, a cable release socket, faster auto focus, but over all this is an easy to use camera, however, for more demanding work somehting along the lines of a f100 would work slightly better, David
