Summary: I bought this camera because of all the great reviews that I read on this website. I thought WOW what a great price for a camera. This was to be my birthday present this year. I picked the camera up today and it does not work. I only put the batteries and card in, chose a language, and the date. Then I got a message saying LENS OBSTRUCTED RESTART CAMERA. I tried several times to restart and got the same message. I'm taking the camera back to Wal-Mart tomorrow.
Summary: For the money you can't beat this camera but without much or any photography experience you might be hard pressed to understand the manual. The info given in the manual is minimal and basic to say the least. Also, like others I could not load any photos onto my pc by using the supplied usb cable, but just take your memory card out and insert it directly into your pc's memory reader slot .
Summary: had more features than I was expecting like the fish eye lens and smile detection. picture quality could be better. I was impressed with the quality of pics zoomed in on all the way. I've taken over 300 photos and the batteries that came with it are still showing at full charge.
Summary: Had been using a Canon Powershot 750. Thought it was great until I got this. Quick shutter speed and excellent auto light adjustment. Have not had to use the flash so far. Taken about 60 pics, all turned out great. Have not used the software that came with the camera since I use Picasa. The zoom is top-notch.
Summary: This camera is very easy to use. The pictures turned out nice and are not blurry. Lots of features. The only thing I'm disappointed with is that it does not record video in HD. Otherwise it's a nice upgrade form a regular point and shoot camera.
Summary: Photography has been my hobby for many many years and I still use the traditional cameras. When it came time to update my digital camera ( a very expensive one) I was basically lost. This camera has been such a good surprise. I admit I am still getting use all of its features. It is quality in all respects and for all the features that it does possess the price was more than a bargain.
