Rated 3 out of 5 by from nice size, but hard to use in bright light I bought this camera use outdoors. While the camera was easy to carry, it was difficult to use in bright light. The viewing screen does not work in bright light, so one can't see what one is photographing. Also,the buttons are very small and black, so in low light it's hard to know what button (if any)that one is pushing. I did find that transferring photos to the computer was OK.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from "Big Zoom, hard to see screen in sunlight" "Bought this 2 weeks ago, and have taken about 1500 images, and about 20 vids. The optical zoom is great. Trying to hold the camera steady is challenging, especially when you get into the digital zoom. I chos this over the RX100 mark 1 for its zoom (24-70 vs 24-over 700) as a travel camera and for when I didn't want to lug around three or four lenses. For that, it's great. The small sensor size means a reduction in image quality (compared to a dslr), but the Zeiss lenses seem to make a better image than my other point and shoots (Nikon SX5200 and others in that range). The manual functions are fantastic for such a small camera, as are the scene functions. The screen is why I only gave it a 4 star rating - it's really tough to see in bright sunlight, regardless of how you position the screen. All in all, though, an excellent camera if you don't have the budget for the HX90, or the RX1000. You get a lot for your money, without breaking the bank"

Does this camera have a lens cap or is the lens automatically covered when the unit off?
