Cost Performace

It gives excellent color rendition with no noticeable distortion in scenic and people photos. It has compact size and probabilities for activities like bike riding, hiking etc. Not only that, but has a great price. Fairly intuitive menu for most used functions like WB resolution, macro etc.
