Best small digital camera that I've used!
26 April 2011
Summary: This is the best point and click camera I've ever used. We bought one because my in-laws have one and it takes such great pictures. We have a little girl and the shutter speed is great for catching pictures of her.
Summary: Got my fx-500 and couldn't be happier. Has more options than you can throw a stick at (which is always fun) and takes very high quality photos. This was a pretty good deal as well, as is the standard with overstock. Very happy, and shipping time was A+!
Summary: As a real estate agent, few things are harder than capturing the spaciousness of a room in pictures. The 25mm wide angle lens lets me capture so much more of a room than I can on a regular camera. Highly recommended for real estate agents!
Pros: Bright LCD, Comfortable Controls, Easy Setup, Easy To Use, Great Picture Quality, Wide angle lens
Summary: I bought this in spite of the negative reviews. I think the criticism might apply for when it cost $400, but for [$] it is a bargain. I wish the default zoom was 35mm, so I didn't have to zoom in slightly each time I take a normal picture, but other wise, no complaints.
Pros: 5x zoom and wide angle, Comfortable Controls, Easy Setup, Easy To Use
Summary: Like the camera very much reason for the below average is because I had to send it in for service, right out of the box, because it would not accept any memory cards. Trying to get it to accept the memory cards I really got to know the camera. It takes excellent pictures and being able use the touch screen to modify the camera is a great plus. The large LCD screen is great and the resolution is very good.
Pros: Good shot to shot flash recycle, decent start up,comfortable feel, easy navigation, quick battery charging,. A sweet camera in the feature department, EXCEPT..............
Cons: Picture quality is poor. I had trouble trying to get more than one or two pictures that were good. The white balance seems to be erratic. There were spots that would show up from time to time in the pictures.Indoor shooting was troublesome.
Summary: I'm a landscape photographer who wanted a new camera to upgrade my Canon A540, and I require superb image quality, wide angle capability, and a decent price. I also wanted a camera with manual controls, but that's getting harder and harder to find without paying big bucks. And a lot of camera companies now seem to think that if the camera's lens goes down to 28mm, then they don't need to make an optional wide angle lens.
