Great zoom and clarity. Everything else sucks.

  • Summary: The 24x zoom is amazing for a camera this size and I've taken some amazingly sharp photos. But just so SLOW! The UI is slow, turning the exposure down takes more than 10 seconds! Focusing (which usually fails) takes forever.

Don't waste your money on this

  • Summary: Disappointed, very disappointed. I bought this camera after MUCH research considering price, pixels, zoom and other things. I needed another camera because my older camera which was a Kodak easy share, which I loved in every way, was missing two things.

Don't bother

  • Summary: Feels good, well made, but never could take a good picture with it. No matter what I did they looked pixilated and fuzzy. I gave up and gave it away!

NOT a wi-fi camera! Repeat NO wifi !!!

  • Summary: I specifically searched Amazon for Wi-Fi cameras. The description below is a little misleading. We go this camera and there is NO wi-fi. You have to buy a wi-fi SD card to use it for wifi, Which you can do with any other camera. This is NOT a wi-fi camera! Repeat NO wifi !!!

Quite a disappointment

  • Summary: I'm a daily camera user, and I got this on special to replace a Canon camera with similar specs because the Canon's flash no longer works. Unfortunately, 3 months later, I'm back to using the Canon more often than this camera. Now, the SZ-12 does do decently outside, both in daytime and at night.

Dirt on sensor

Earl T., Newegg
1 December 2012
  • Summary: Returning for replacement. Hope the next one is better.
  • Pros: Simple to operate, like the menu options - very few buttons to use for changing options.
  • Cons: Huge chunk of dirt on the sensor, obvious when camera is set to longest zoom
