Too Soft to use

Walmart
13 June 2010
  • Summary: As a professional photographer, the appeal was extremely strong of having a lens that zoomed from very wide angle to a very telephoto lens. A twelve mega pixels image implies a very sharp image. Our business deals in part with pets.

Horrible

SF Investor, Amazon
26 May 2010
  • Summary: I bought this in 2009 and it took me (don't laugh) four years to figure out that it's a dud. I only realized this after we got an EOS 6d and what a difference! Blurry, off-color shots no matter what settings you use, unless you are in very specific shooting circumstances (outdoor, low glare).

Bad Seller

Rae, Amazon
25 May 2010
  • Summary: This item was not new, despite the description. The box the camera came in was opened. The batteries were used and floating all over the box during shipment. I returned the camera because I expect much better for $700.

My fz35 better

Wendy W., Newegg
21 May 2010
  • Summary: I returned after 1 week. I wanted to love it but it was all broken promises. Would not automatically perform with out constant tweaking. Took over 100 pictures at a party and 95% were grainy, over saturated, or to soft with ghosting and SX20 doesn't support adding filters.
  • Pros: high zoom, uses AA batteries, flip out screen
  • Cons: very heavy, focus to soft, over saturated, most pictures don't turn out well, does NOT support using filters or add-ons, no flash pop up button, focus slow

Not up to the job

Anonymous, Newegg
14 December 2009
  • Summary: My company purchased this camera to replace a Nikon point and shoot that was stolen. The Nikon was less than half the resolution, yet produced more detail in the photos. The auto focus has 3 ranges that do not seem to overlap, there are areas that will not focus.
  • Pros: The IS works well. The Zoom Range is great. Long battery life when using rechargeables. Very solid feel.
  • Cons: The Auto focus is useless in auto mode. All photos are soft focus. This is simply not a 300+ dollar camera. It proves that mega pixels are not the entire story. The camera must work as a system and this one has a major weak spot, the auto focus.

  • Excerpt: В целом нравится, но за эти деньги мог бы быть и лучше.
  • Pros: Подходят обычные батарейки ; Отличное видео. ; Хороший зум.
  • Cons: Стабилизатор какой-то странный...Иногда работает иногда нет. ; Нет индикатора батареи. Она кончается внезапно! ; Шумный на столько что это переходит все границы. Им хорошо снимать только днем и не движущиеся объекты. Макро просто ужас. Как он фокусируеться? Это загадка. В общем после года использ...

nach 6 Stunden zurück...

  • Summary: Ich bin nun wirklich kein Experte, daher hatte ich mich auch dazu entschieden mich an ein Testheft der Stiftung Warentest zu halten. Da der damalige Sieger, die SX10, nicht mehr lieferbar war, habe ich mich für das Folgemodell entschieden.
