Summary: While I am no means an avid photographer, I do take numerous photos in varying light conditions at many different distances. From mere inches to far off shots, this camera has some great quality and focus. The only issue I have had is while using the zoom at near max, the camera does not like to auto-focus. I have had to zoom back out some to let it re-focus and them zoom back in to sort of kick it back into gear.
Summary: I use the camera for close ups of birds, animals and flowers. It takes great close up photos and the video is really nice. I like the fact that you can use the view finder rather than the LCD screen to save battery power (it really does make a difference on the life of the batteries).Once I got use to it being heavier and larger than my small camera It's very easy to handle and to use. Set up was easy.
Summary: It seems that most of the bad reviews stem from people that are expecting too much from this camera. If you think you are going to get a job at National Geographic with this unit you are going to be disappointed. This camera is not a DSLR and will not take professional quality photos. It is however a very nice point and shoot consumer level camera with a nice super zoom lens that allows for a little creativity in manual and priority modes.
Summary: I just got back from vacation and loved this camera, took great pictures. The only feature that drove me crazy is that you have to take the lens cap off first before turning on the camera other wise a message comes up on the screen.Turn off camera remove lens cap and then turn camera on. The camera Is great and easy to use and for the price.. wow Recommend highly..
Summary: Estoy satisfecho con este articulo,ya que siempre desee tener una camara como esta con un precio acorde a mi poder adquisitivo.Aunque no soy un profesional de la fotografia,me gusta hacer fotografias a distancia usando zoom de largo alcance ,debido a esto decidi comprar tambien el tripode.Pienso que para el precio de 159.00 podemos seguir haciendo fotos de gran calidad ....
Summary: This product is good for the price. It takes good pictures but the zoom is hit and miss. As long as you make sure the lens is in focus, you will have a good end product. No, it is not a DSLR camera and does not take professional grade pictures. However, for the average person it is a great camera for the price. I like the blink detector and face recognition feature. The pictures come out clear, even if my two year old son is running around.
Summary: Camera is light weight and takes excellent photos. The cost for such a camera would normally run somewhere between $400- $500. We purchased this camera to take photos of wildlife and family outings. So far we have used to film my son who plays varsity basketball. I reccomend this to anyone. It's easy to use, light weight and durable.
