Disappointed

sweetpea, B&H Photo
14 May 2014
  • Excerpt: As a photographer sometimes it's nice not to lug all the gear around. I wanted a small point and shoot for fun. This camera read like it would be the perfect companion. It was easy to learn the controls. I am however very disappointed in the quality of the shots. I have yet to get a sharp picture. The macro setting is too cumberson and slow. Not happy with the camera for the price.
  • Pros: Good in Low Light, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, Poor Image Quality

  • Summary: I am returning this camera because it is not easy to use. The pictures I did take looked grainy. I also don't like that you have to flip open the flash. It might be me but I need an easier to use camera.

Pictures were not sharp.

  • Summary: I tried every setting available, then tried to sharpen in PS. Pictures just not sharp, I wanted to use it in auto mode. The focus seems to not be spot on.

Not Up To Cost Standards

  • Summary: For the price that was paid for it, it wss very cheap looking and didn't seem to take pictures all that well. All the accessories appeared to be in miniature, totally not what was expected.

  • Summary: Camera was big and clunky relative to performance capacity. Also prefer lithium battery over alkaline which don't last very long!

not as described

  • Summary: the camera case DOES not fit the camera inside of it. It is also a different name brand. Within one day, some plastic few off the lense.
