Summary: I used this for more than a year and finally got rid of it. The photo quality was very disappointing and was finally forced to carry my old Canon digital elph for pics. The movie quality was very good and I loved the MP4 (lots of video very small files) format but just could not stand the pictures.
Summary: I have owned this camera for over a year hate the quality of the pictures. I'm not an expert when it comes to cameras I'm not a novice either, and have larger better cameras but after a while the larger ones get heavy. So when I saw this camera I thought it would be perfect.
Summary: Seems like a decent product, but I went through two returns with Tech for Less - an Amazon merchant. They were very courteous throughout the transaction and provided fast service, but I had to return two factory-refurbished cameras in a row for defects. One was pretty bad.
Summary: I think this camera would have been great, because it had several great features and took very good pictures, however we had to return it because it was malfunctioning and randomly deleting photos. We will probably purchase a Canon instead.
Summary: I bought this and returned it the next day. Every photo I took (whether indoor, outdoor with sunlight, flash, no flash) was very grainy and just bad quality. I can't imagine how grainy the photos would have been if I had tried to print them!
Summary: my hands are maybe too big for this camera. My left forefinger is always touch or cover to lens. If I try to avoid that I covered microphone (it's not good when I take a movie). I gave up to hold secure and decided to return it.
Summary: I just used this for the 1st time today so no input about durability. I will likely not keep this camera, b/c I think for it's basic functionality you could get one that is cheaper and likely better. Drawbacks: There is no viewer, you only have the digital screen to use to see your shot.
Summary: This is a very attractive camera, with lots of cool features and very good screen. However, the core function of a camera, for me, is to take pictures, and in this respect the Z20fd failed. I am not a `novice' user, but nor am I an expert. I don't even have the best eyesight in the world.
