Summary: Pictures come out okay. Just used it at an indoor birthday party April 11, 2015. Took decent picture. Although I gave it 3 stars I would recommend for beginners only. I hate the lag time between taking photos it feels like it takes forever. I tried different setting taking pictures with this camera. Hoping this works for my daughters sweet 16 party. Although, there will also be 2 professional photographers there as well.
Summary: I am a novice photographer. I like the easy point and shoot cameras but wanted more features and a longer zoom. This camera is so easy to use. I had it at the beach and was able to zoom in on the kids who went way out in the water. The quality of the pictures is good too. I'm so glad I got this one.
Summary: Great camera for the money. I had an older Fuji camera and am very pleased with this one. The auto stabilization feature does an amazing job. The optical zoom is very good. My older camera was mostly electronic zoon (just blew up a smaller portion of the image with a great loss in resolution), but this one is a full quality image from wide to tight. I took a photo of a bird on my outdoor antenna (30 feet high and 35-40 feet away) while hand holding the camera.
Summary: We are impressed with this camera as a point and shoot. It is quick to shoot and the results are decent. It is especially useful to our situation for getting a photo of kids on a stage at a school event where you'd normally not get a decent shot at all. The combination of decent low light performance and long optical zoom means if you have a steady hand you can get that stage shot that zooms in on your child from a dark auditorium seat with pretty good results.
Summary: So far I am very impressed with the quality of this camera. It is built very solid ....takes excellent photo's and video's, and does not require a degree in photography to operate......I am very happy with this purchase..... D.
Summary: This is a very good bridge camera. It takes very clear, precise photos. The telephoto is amazing, and the cost is very reasonable. It lacks certain things that other higher priced cameras have, like a moveable LCD screen and the ability to shoot raw footage, but it is still a helluva camera.
Summary: I brought this camera for my (now) weekly hikes in and around Colorado. And I have to say that so far I'm pleased with my purchase. I'm not even an amateur photographer, and have just started to play around with the camera settings. It did a great job with the "scene-recognition auto" mode, which basically chooses the type of picture (portrait, landscape etc) based on the scene.
Summary: Camera works great so far and takes great, quality photos. The macro feature was the most important feature for the decision to acquire this model versus others. The closeup photos are also of great quality and very good detail. Would recommend this for anyone seeking to do the same.
