A camera beyond intelligent
Excellent lens, auto/manual focus control with smart assistance, HD video, ISO 12800, still shots while recording video, silk-smooth and steady panoramas up to 360°, intelligent flash, ultra-wide angle (24 mm), tiltable LCD screen, face detection AND recognition into a database, improved night photography, control over contrast, sepia and other classic-film simulations, and more.
So advanced that it gets complex and requires a lot of study and experimentation.
A little slow processing multiple shots.
Zoom controlled manually but jerky especially when hand-held.
Would love time-lapse capability.
As an amateur but increasingly serious photographer I'm ecstatic over this marvel. I can't compare it to other makes, but I can't see how a camera could be smarter. It has features I couldn't imagine ANY camera could offer at ANY price, EVER. And the lens isn't pro level, but close to it. Unless you're happy with its auto modes -and you could very well be- mastering it takes time and effort before you can get great shots under poor lighting or other difficult conditions: so ease of use=4/5.
