I got a chance to use this camera a few weeks back. Not only is it a great camera for beginners but for professionals too. You can just leave it on the auto mode and still capture great images. This camera comes with a flip out screen, which is really handy when you are trying to take shots at difficult angles.
The camera is very light and some people did say it feels too plastic, but I didn't see a problem with it. It also takes full HD videos, which is a bonua when you are travelling, as you don't need to take both a camera and camcorder away with you.
If you are looking to buy a digital slr, I would either recommend this camera, or the canon 550D.
