Autofocus off resulting in blurry photos and no help from the company!!!
6 February 2014
Summary: I was really happy to purchase this camera after researching cameras in my price range way too long... or perhaps not long enough as it turned out. Seemed to have everything I needed. However the autofocus is off by enough so that all my photos are a very soft focus to put it nicely. I contacted the company and emailed them 2 representative photos using a tripod and a timer delay to eliminate camera movement.
Summary: I have owned three versions of this same camera. I bought this one a few months ago to replace the 7mp version and was surprised when it showed up and is physically larger than the old version. Used it on a several week international trip and here's what I noticed: PRO- The zoom is very good. I can take pictures that come out very good from very far away. Has many different settings, that allow you to adjust for different settings like sunset, fireworks, flowers, etc.
Summary: so I waited 2 days for this camera to come. When I got off work came home it was sitting on my porch waiting for me. I got it inside opened it up got it all set to take my pic of my dog Diamond. So I lift my camera to take the pick I push on the shutter button ....and nothing the shutter button didn't work. So im sending it back and im getting a replacement sent to me. Hopefully the new one will work. Ill keep you posted.
Summary: This is an awesome camera for the price! You can view through the viewer in bright light, which is unusual for a camera in this price range. It has awesome zoom, takes great pictures! I love recharging the batteries as I take so many pictures it saves a fortune. You can take a LOT of pictures before you need to recharge them. It has an image stabilizer that stops the blurring on the zooming for the most part. I like the large viewing screen, too.
Summary: My review is from the POV of someone who is a complete beginner to photography. I didn't buy this camera because I enjoy photography, I bought it because I wanted something to catalog memories with a picture but also wanted to have a camera that could zoom in more than my Sony Cybershot. If you're interest are similar, this camera is definitely for you! The price is great, I bought it new (open box) so there are no defects that I'm aware of.
Summary: My daughter has a passion for photography, amongst other things. She had already used her digital starter cameras, so I purchased this one for her birthday. We have had it since March and it is still taking beautiful pictures. The zoom is amazing, even if you take a far off picture and zoom in, it captures the details perfectly. If you want a great camera, I suggest this one, it even worked in the terribly dim lighting at a school concert.
Summary: This camera is so worth it!! It doesn't do itself justice on here. They need more discription cause IT IS AMAZING!!!! AND the price is so cheap it might scare you BUT I love it!! So glad I bought it!!!
Summary: I liked mine so much that I purchased this now hard to find camera for my dad's retirement gift. It has clear crips shots, and great Optical Zoom, easy to understand control panel, and a comfortable design. I dinged it a star for being a little slow on the sports/action shots, even with prefocusing the lense and the fact that the card in in the same compartment with the batteries, and the battery compartment is placed in such a way as to be blocked by a speed mount on...
