Summary: I like this camera. However, I am finding that it goes through batteries in a heartbeat. I am getting just a handful of shots before I get a warning that the battery life is gone. I have tried both rechargeable and good quality Alkaline batteries. I have both called and emailed General Imaging, and I did get a reply after a few days. I will now send in the camera for repair.
Summary: Its a Great Camera, very easy to use. Nice interface directions. Takes fantastic video & photos. One word of advice, purchase the accessory kit, as in SD Card, Camera Case & Batteries with Charger @ time of purchase. I did not & it ended up costing more then if I would of purchased the complete package at once. This Camera will also give you a Mega Pixel Choice. If you don't want to take a photo in 14 megapix you have the option of using a lover resolution.
Summary: Great price for the camera-- I'm not too tech-savvy, so I needed a very user friendly camera...and this is it!! Remember, you have to buy the memory cards for it. If not, the camera shoots like 3 photos and then you have to download or delete those three to take any more photos...the memory card needed for it is listed under the product's description and 'what other people bought" section.
Wrong camera & not new like it has said in description
5 August 2013
Summary: I was very disappointed - its rare that I am unhappy with anything from Amazon but this camera was not new (it was described as such) & the model shipped was different than what was purchased. Amazon took care of me with a return & refund but that was extra hassle that I should not have had to deal with.
The aim light is too bright and literally blinds the audience

Summary: This camera has big buttons and good preview screen. I bought this as a gift for my Dad who has some vision problems. I was eve happy to see the video recording has a button and thought it will be easier for my Dad to use it that way. But when I asked my son to take a couple of pictures of me, noticed the aim light was way too bright and it literally blinded me for a few minutes and every time he clicked the camera, I couldnt control me blinking as the aim light was way...
Summary: Lovin the Panorama shots. I can take pictures of people and Pan-shot myself in the picture as if I was there with them. Took this camera clubbin, there is no night vision, so video was dark. It would have been awkward if we brought a bright light in a dark place where people are dancing. But then again for the price, who can complain. Also took pictures at nighttime (without extra lights), pictures came out not too good.
