Summary: I wanted an economic small camera for my upcoming holidays. The camera is fine but for its 16megapixels I really expected much better results. The photos have visible pixels after zooming x3 or x4 which I don't find acceptable. For the price and my purpose it's fine, but still compared to my old iPhone 4S 8 megapixel camera this camera doesn't stand a chance...

Summary: I bought this as a compact camera to take to me on a 13 city tour of the UK and norther Europe. I didn't really understand how to best use it until Paris, which was my last stop. I found that I had to overcompensate for exposure to achieve the best photos. If it's overcast or in-doors you won't get very printable shots out of it. The best, most crisp, and zoom-in worthy shots were when there was LOTS of sun.
Summary: My wife loves the camera and I gave it to her. Winner, ME She is not a techie and has not asked me a single question about how to use it and is very happy with the results. Not a single complaint, Winner, Me!
Summary: I like these cameras and have more than one, as I must take 200 pictures a day in my job as a Dog Vacay host. (They are sent to the sent to dogs' families at least once a day if not more often). I have 2 so if the battery needs charging, I don't miss any cuteness. The one design flaw on this camera, in my opinion, was that the door to the battery/memory compartment is plastic, and flimsy, and the pressure from the sim card or battery can cause it to bow, sometimes...
Summary: I am not very experienced with digital cameras and have always just used the camera on my current phone. So, take that into account when reading this review. I found it very difficult to sift through the plethora of instructions for this camera (downloaded from the Internet). I also found it difficult to determine the correct settings for shooting a pic. There is a "Help" feature on the phone, which helped somewhat.
Summary: It works fine - when it works. When it doesn't work, neither the seller, nor the mfgr. would take any responsibility for getting it right. Only Amazon was kind enough to give me a discount on my next purchase.
Excerpt: I picked one up on sale for about $110 US. So far, a good little pocket camera with a reliable JPEG engine and nice saturated colors, usually an accurate auto WB, and the right amount of sharpening. I like to keep it in P mode and set a few things to taste, especially the WB, which is usually pretty smart, but can be fooled by flourescent lighting. The Fireworks mode is very good, and I had fun using it for july 4th., as it is able to capture about 4 sec. exposure.
Summary: My Nikon Coolpix broke after my dog decided to use it as a chew toy, so I received this one as a Christmas gift. This camera is definitely thicker than most other point and shoot digital cameras, so it makes it look a bit dated and feels bulky -- it's definitely not something I'd toss in my bag to take pictures during a girls night out. It also feels cheaper, which is the first thing I noticed when I opened it.
