30 October 2014
Summary: I'm not a photographer, but this takes great pictures for me and I get awesome close up shots with the zoom. The "autopilot" settings are good for me. To date I've never worried about fine tuning the camera for any particular situation but am confident it could take very accurate pictures in doing...
Summary: I have had this camera for a while, it is good looking and compact. I picked this model because it has a viewfinder which enables me to see what I am shooting in any light condition, as I find the led screens impossible to see outdoors.
Summary: This camera is really great for close up and long distance. I had the same camera but the 110 model and I wanted to upgrade. I got it for a great price, used, just gotta look around. I am very happy with it. The pictures are beautiful.
Summary: I bought this camera strictly for wildlife and scenery photography. I needed a powerful zoom, and this one has that. Also, when I am vacationing, I now just bring this one camera and leave all my lenses at home. For my uses this is a great little camera.
Summary: I went from a Konica Minolta Z3 to the P80, then the P100, and this is my second P500. My brother won't let go of his P100, and neither of us is interested in the newest models. GPS data? Who wants this government to know where and when you take your pictures?
Summary: This digital camera, advertised as NEW, ordered by me a week ago (March 2013) arrived to me with photos already on it of a family opening their Christmas presents dated 2011. It is USED! I'm disgusted by such unethical business practices.
Summary: If you are going on a vacation, or a trip without proper environment for a DSLR, this is the type of camera you want to have. The zoom is absolutely amazing, nice wide angle and super telephoto, a bit noisy if you compare the pictures with a prime lens in a DSLR but you will be able to get nice...
Summary: I am very pleased with this camera, although it has many more features than I need. At the time of purchase, it was the best available ultra zoom for the price. There may now be better choices.
