Summary: My husband bought this camera before deploying. We liked it so much we found it on Amazon to buy one to replace my old camera. I received it quickly. However when turning it on and off and when taking a photo the lens part sounded like it was grinding. I tried taking photos with it and the photos turned out great, but the noise would not go away. I know it is just this particular camera since the other one we bought did great.
Summary: I bought this camera because it had a rechargable battery, HD video, and a clicker wheel (technical term). I took some pictures with it. The details were totally washed out, it was unresponsive in its auto-smile feature, and the video quality was garbage. Look up some of the videos on youtube. There is a high-pitched shrieking noise in 720p and a different flavor of static in each of the other two settings. Promptly returned and now looking for something better.
Excerpt: My husband bought me this camera before last Christmas, and it now takes blurry, dark pictures. What a disappointment when you want to capture the memories of your children. I cannot wait to buy a new camera. It took great pictures when I first got it. Now I have to use my phone to take pictures.
Ziemlich billige Verarbeitung und schlechte Bilder
1 May 2011
Summary: Ich hab mir die Kamera gekauft, weil mir die Funktionen gut gefallen haben, weil sie leicht zu bedienen ist und weil meine alte Fuji immer gute Bilder gemacht hat. Leider hat diese hier mich aber bei weitem nicht so überzeugt wie meine Vorherige. Verarbeitung: Leider ist diese Kamera ziemlich schlecht verarbeitet. Wie schon andere bemängelt haben ist z.b die Klappe zum Akku-Fach ziemlich wackelig wenn sie geöffnet ist.
