Excerpt: Nope, it only allows 4 AA batteries, so to utilize it well, I’d suggest you buy 4 rechargable AA batteries and an AA battery charger (Energizer works pretty well for me). So if you just get yourself a good battery pack, buy a big SD memory (8GB+) and you shall have power and memory to last you a few good hours while you get your photography hat on and take pictures and videos until your heart is satisfied… unless the batteries finish first.
Summary: I've been using my dad's high end canon camera to learn the ropes of photography, and then for Christmas I got this one for my own. I was thrilled. I love this camera, with the quality of shots and the great zoom. The two things that I hate about this camera are as follows: 1: You MUST NEVER LOSE the cable that comes with the camera for connecting it to the computer. There is no oer way to download your pictures.
Summary: I was very pleased when I got this camera. It was very light weight, fit the hand well, and took good pictures. However, after about 3 weeks when I would turn it on it would say "turn camera off and turn on again". I noticed the zoom lens would not move on it. Something seemed to be locked up. After reading about others with the same problem I had no choice but to return it...which I might add that Amazon made it VERY EASY to do.
Summary: I bought this camera to replace my trusty Finepix S8000fd, which is sadly no longer produced - I loved that camera but it suddenly developed a fault which meant that pictures were either full of streaks (like interference on a tv screen), or the colours were confined to shades of purple, or it produced a mangled image. The cost of repair is likely to be more than buying the S2980, so I chose a new camera.
Summary: Arrived on time but has been troublesome it over heats in the hot weather I tried changing batteries but still same, after 2 weeks it seemed to settle down I have not experienced any more failures since. As for the camera's functions its a very good product although it does get confused easily at times in bright sunlight, my pictures turn out fuzzy even when on a tripod?.
Summary: That camera is well build and looks tough (except the flashlight, wich look a little weak). Comes with a cover for the objective lens and has good performance. I was specting a little more shooting speed but I completely recomend that camera for general purposes, because does better pictures than normal comptact cameras. Obviously, no miracles for almost 80 £, but does its job perfectly.
Summary: I am not sure that I am very happy with this camera. The image quality is quite poor, dull and unexciting. I am returning this product to buy something that's a little more expensive but promises better quality.
Summary: It has an outstanding performance compared to others, and you won?t get anything like this for such a price. Good design that would make you feel confident while holding it, it comes with powerful zoom, outstanding viewfinder, auto scene recognition, quality, pre-installed technologies etc.
Summary: It have an outstanding performance compared to it is rivals, you won?t get anything like this for such a price. The best part is the dslr like design that would make you feel confident while holding it, and for amateurs and beginners they can start experimenting with the shutter speed and aperture control and could have a better understanding of camera.
