"This is my 2nd Nikon E12NKCPB500R."

The battery life is outstanding, lasted her whole two week trip with moderate use. This camera far exceeded my expectations. Overall good camera and value but needs improvements in the hardware. I feel that it takes better pictures than the DSC-HX50. In fact, the very first photo I took was indoors of my wife.

"I bought this bad boy."

In spite of all the motion on my end, the pictures were sharp. Great camera and bundle from this deal. I works flawlessly with my Sony lenses. So, when Sony ILCE7M3/B came, I purchased it immediately. So having a backup battery is what I would consider a must.

"He loves it!"

One thing that worries me is the little flap that covers the USB connector. Full manual, Shutter Priority and Aperture Priority. I did buy some rechargeable batteries to use in it.

"It was worth importing."

I would like a firmware update to fix that. This is the perfect compromise camera for me. I get great photos, and it does not take long to import them to my laptop. The package is so small and light I barely notice it has a lens. I started with a NEX-6 and moved up to an Sony DSCHX80/B.
