Needs a separate view finder!!

Marcia Specht, Amazon

  • Summary: I used this camera in Trinidad and my photos of birds were magnificent. BUT, I had a great deal of difficulty in keeping the bird in the frame when using the zoom lens. This camera would be perfect if it only had a separate view finder!

Works well in some situations

  • Summary: This camera works well for most situations other than fast moving targets. I purchased this to take pictures of my son's basketball and volleyball games. There aren't many manual setting available and even at the highest ISO or automatic (sports) settings, you will have a hard time getting a picture...

  • Summary: You get what you pay for, and at this price something has to give. It's a nice little camera, but the sensor quality is a weak spot. Poor low-light performance, poor image stabilization even in bright sunlight at min zoom.

It's a Kettle!

  • Summary: The previous reviews by others give all necessary feed-back I believe but I suggest that one considers this type of camera broady. Do the designers even know what ergonomic means? Certainly I agree with the focusing comment and although it has happened to me yet, I do think the battery lid 'jiggles'...

Not for me, this one

Adam Veale, Amazon
18 March 2014
  • Summary: Bare in mind here I am a real novice, but... I have mixed feelings about this camera. It came pretty highly recommended going by online reviews and the opinion of the guy in my local camera shop, and I love its look and feel (although it does feel a little on the cheap side when it comes to build...

A downgrade from its predecessor

Hilary, Amazon
23 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought this camera to replace my Olympus SP800UZ which got damaged after being used hundreds of times. This camera is similar but there are some differences. The camera starts up quicker, which is a plus. Hopefully I won't lose so many 'moments' while the camera starts up.

  • Summary: Battery consists of 4 AA batteries and battery life is very short. Camera does not have Trimming facility so you have got to get your shot right at at first go.

  • Summary: A well-reviewed and recommended camera but although I have yet to take any serious pics, I am disappointed with the fragile quality of the battery compartment lid., and also the manual lift up flash!! The battery life is also giving some early concern by running down in a day.
