  5. I’ve never had a camera this nice before but what a camera this one is and I see GPS you can get which is optional. Awesome! I want one and if I could afford it right now, I’d get it.

  6. This is the camera for me! Ohhh the light features alone make me so happy! I have been researching cameras for several months now as it is a major purchase for me. As I research I am saving my money little by little. I know (Gasp) I do not have a large amount of disposable income. So I been researching as this camera purchase will likely be my camera for life. I want to get the best one. This camera has everything I need. I truly like that it weighs WITH batteries 1.23 lbs. The color makes no mind to me it is what the camera can do that is important. I love the timer too!
