Great zoom, marginal focus/color

Amazon Customer "bondah", Amazon
14 September 2014
  • Summary: Great for close ups (flowers/insects), but very hard to get to focus compared to an older Kodak camera I have in the same price bracket. The color also seems to be more washed out in many cases. I wouldn't buy this camera full price, but a used one is a decent addition.

Very good features for the price

Roger Harris, Amazon

  • Summary: Very good features for the price, very poor UI to operate. My wife is always getting lost with the features and gets stuck and has a hard time getting the camera back to normal operation (the reset function doesn't really do that) you have to turn the camera off and back on.

camera

Anthea R. Close, Amazon
31 May 2014
  • Summary: I sent this back as it was left at my door in an opened package. I saw the delivery person driving away and so he left the box like that. When I opened the box containing the camera there were finger marks all over the camera screen. I felt uncomfortable keeping the camera and so returned it.

Great zoom, OK pictures, long reset

Jerimiah, Amazon
27 January 2014
  • Summary: I've had the camera two months and it is a good deal for the money but it has a major fault. It takes a very long time to reset for the next shot. (reset, refresh, cycle?) The pictures are fine but not as good as my Canon powershot. The zoom is really incredible for such a small camera.

More blurry pictures

Mom First, Amazon
29 July 2013
  • Summary: I am not a camera expert. I really want a camera that takes great quality pictures with minimal adjustment. The zoom on this camera is great which is what ultimately prompted me to buy this camera. The pictures it can take in low light without a flash are impressive....when they turn out.

Not too impressed by the pictures this takes

mike wilson, Amazon

  • Summary: I have a DSLR, but wanted a super zoom that I could throw in my pocket to take random candids with. I landed on this after a fair amount of review reading, but I really haven't been impressed with the quality of the pictures from this.

It's how you use it.

  • Summary: I'm not a professional but I: a. avoid smartphone cameras b. try to get cameras with P A S M whenever I can So was a bit worried since the SZ14 has no Aperture, Shutter and Manual control Why did I get it?

  • Summary: Nice compact size and I love the finger grip on the front on the right hand side. I have taken about 40 pic's with it indoors and outdoors. The pic's are very,very good and being a passenger in my roomates truck taking pic's going down the road,it stops the movement very well.

  • Summary: I bought this camers, and haved started to use it. BUT cannot find a manual that can help with all the buttons etc..I am wondering if I just didn't get one in the box, but trying to work it out without instructions is a little daunting & disappoining for a Blonde Senior..
