Summary: I've had and used this product a decent number of times since I bought it September 2012. I can't seem to get the shutter speed to work with me no matter what function I'm in (sport/pet/etc) or how still something is. Zoom works perfectly, but again, the object has to be not moving or you'll miss it by the time it snaps the picture.
Summary: Purchased this camera on Amazon. I love everything about it, the look, feel and zooming power. The photos and videos are very sharp and clear. However, I noticed when I transfer them to my computer or connect the camera to the TV, the photos lose all their image quality. Not sure why that is! But all in all, for someone who is not a professional photog, this was a cool purchase!
Summary: The camera is ok, but I received it with a malfunction of the flash. I need to do a return and they fixed and returned to me again, but I expend 20 dollars in this process by the mail, it means 10% more of the initial value of my purchase...
Summary: If you are used to a digital camera with fast processing time, then do not buy this. It is way too slow for my taste. I also do not like the focusing time it takes for this camera to take a picture. The skin softening application is not that great either. Overall, I would not recommend this camera. I was swayed by some of the good reviews, but it is not to my liking.
Summary: The Pros...it's a beautiful camera, the high res in the LCD on the back is wonderful and this camera takes great photos & videos. The 26X zoom is very smooth and once it arrives to the subject you are zooming in on, the Auto Focus is good for the amount of money one spends on this bridge camera. It's a nice package. Cons...I bought this camera for taking to car racing events, car shows and places where a good zoom for a nice movie is a MUST HAVE.
