Astounding NIKKOR 42x optical zoom lens (24–1000mm): extend your range from powerful wide-angle to super-telephoto coverage. Four ED glass elements minimize chromatic aberration.
Back-illuminated 18 MP CMOS sensor: with each pixel receiving more light, this highly sensitive image sensor works with the EXPEED C2 processor to deliver clear shots in any light.
Advanced lens-shift VR: second-generation vibration reduction enables slower shutter speeds (up to four stops), while ‘Active mode’ even delivers clear shots from moving vehicles.
Full HD (1080p/60i) movie recording with stereo sound: a dedicated video-record button makes it easy to begin filming and you can also take still photos while filming.
Vari-angle 8.0-cm (3.2-in.) 921k-dot LCD monitor: to take shots from any angle. This high-resolution screen, as featured on professional Nikon D-SLR cameras, boasts an anti-reflective coating and offers superb colour reproduction.

Macro mode: allows you to focus on subjects really close-up (effectively from just 1 cm distance) to capture the smallest of details.

About Me Casual user, Getting started
This is a great size camera easily portable but robust. It has great picture quality, a fantastic zoom and easy to use functions. Have only just scratched the surface but has continous shooting mode and panoramic option which i have used. It is easy to edit and save photos and has a great quality digital zoom allowing even closer shots. Even has a smile detector on the self timer function!! Wex had the most competitive price making this camera excellent value for money.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
