Save your money for a better camera

smedby, CNET
19 November 2012
  • Summary: Save your money and buy something better. It's ok for outdoor pictures and if you don't need to zoom. Zoom does very poorly; the pictures almost always come out blurry. As soon as it's getting close to dusk, and at night, it takes forever for the batteries to re-charge between pictures. Lots of waisted time. Make sure you always carry extra batteries as well.
  • Pros: Point and shoot, Small and fits great in a pocket. , Easy to use.
  • Cons: Short battery life, Blurry pictures, Recharges the batteries all the time

  • Summary: My wife picked this camera out and she's not very happy with it. The auto focus doesn't work very well and the pictures are usually grainy. It's also pretty slow processing and storing the pictures. All in all not bad for the PM'd price I paid but you can definitely do better.
  • Pros: Small size, Easy to use., Wife likes the color..lol!
  • Cons: Auto focus doesn't work very well., Grainy pictures, Slow processing.

Starters Camera

  • Summary: This camera is ok for a starter’s camera or for the kids to play around with. It takes good pictures, you just need to know how to play with the setting and to set the aperture correctly, try not to use the zoom often it doesn’t come out to clear if the lighting isn’t good. If you use low powered batteries the camera will take a few seconds to recharge the flash, I recommend buying high powered lithium batteries from Energizer or Duracell don’t go for any other company...
