Summary: What I ordered was exactly what I got. The P50 has a vast amount of options and the look and feel of a high-end camera. The speed of the service and the delivery of the camera with all attachments was superb.
Summary: Good to acceptable image quality on computer screen up to ISO 200. Lens distortions are evident especially around edges, at various focal lengths. Managed to produce decent 8x10 inch prints, even from cropped frames.
Summary: Confession: I've only had this camera one week, so I'll update this entry if new facts warrant. Having said that, this is a terrific camera for those qualities that I value. The essence of great photography for my skill-level means being able to take A LOT of pictures inexpensively (deleting a bunch...
Summary: I am a photographer and was looking for something smaller and lighter than my big DSLR - and the wide angle is nice along with the manual exposure controls ive had it for a couple of months and the only problem Im having is that i cant find the battery meter.
Summary: I can only rate this four star because I own a Nikon D200/D70 with all the bells and whistles. This small compact camera works great! The top feature is the wider angle 28mm lens, most point and shoots are 35mm and up, so you have that handy wider angle feature.
Summary: This camera has the three things I wanted most in a point-and-shoot: 1) Wide-angle lens (~28mm film equivalent) 2) Optical viewfinder 3) Use common AA batteries So far I've been quite happy with it, the only small cons would be startup delay and shutter lags, and the odd (for me) "micro" USB...
Summary: Camera has good features like taking pictures in musuem where objects are in showcase. It also takes a while to write on the SD card.Seems to slow you down. We went thru 3 sets of AA batteries for 120 pictures on our trip on this camera.Keep extra AA handy if taking more than 30 pictures at a time.
Summary: P50 is relatively inexpensive, so you can't ask too much. But I can say that this camera works pretty well as a travel mate. Pocket-size, wide-angle lens, AA batteries are what you really need abroad. Easy to hold with one hand. Overall image quality is very good.
