  1. a compact camera that wont even disappoint professionals

    Posted by Ghayas on 24th Feb 2014

    with the digic 5 processor it provides full creativity as you will find in DSLRs, while sensor is great as provides true colors with minimum noise even at higher ISO values.
    great value for money, and good alternate of DSLR for starters with budget constraints.
