Cost Performace

I bought this camera 6-months ago; its picture quality is simply awesome. There is an impressive number of ways to adjust the camera’s “software” to fit your different needs. Its physical appearance reveals that it is meant to last forever. I have used it in various locations with different condition like in rain forest, deserts and polar region.
