Excerpt: Pictures hard to compose..Slow on point and shoot..Aston K. never used this cheaply made camera...pictures not as clear and focused as my daughter's lower pixel camera ...hard to configure setting on the fly..stopped working after a little over a year of us...
"Photos clear then blurry, too bright then too dark"
11 November 2010
Pros: On the odd occasion it takes some nice photos. Easy to navigate. Pretty nice look of the camera. Okay shutter lag most of the time, then others it takes a minute or two.
Cons: Terrible photo quality most of the time Limited features Flash is okay if you put it on auto... Weird zoom, it doesn't have a mode dial (also bad thing trait) which positions the zoom on the front
Summary: We had a baby in February and bought this camera the month before she was due. I've missed so many moments because this camera is horrible. The flash goes on when it wants to and there is no rhyme or reason to when it cooperates. Then one day we had a lemonade stand for our 6 year old and the camera just didn't work...for 4 months! We were just about to send it back to the manufacturer and it decided to work again.
Summary: I liked the camera when it worked! Itwould not power up in just three weeks.I emailed best buy in California;but received no response once the auction was over.I went to Bestbuy in salem NH and they told me it was a circuit board problem;and it's not worth the cost to fix.SoI'm looking at a DEAD HORSE;and it stinks! Wild Bill.
