Summary: The camera broke down and it was replaced by a refurbished product. Not satisfied with the quality of the product nor the limited one year warranty, nor the fact that I had to settle with a fixed-second-hand camera. On top of that, I had to pay to send the product for evaluation and repairs.
Clicked some amazing pictures while it lasted (for around six months)

Summary: I was happy with the performance of the camera and the zoom. The video quality was good too. For the price, it did well in all areas that it was supposed to do. Then, in just six months, it gave me the dreaded lens error which has become very common these days. I have been using cameras for a while and was quite careful while handling it, but still got this error on a very minor obstruction of the moving lens assembly.
Summary: I had this camera for about a week and I have to say I was disappointed with the overall picture quality in modest to low lighting situations. Overall I think is it a good well built camera it felt good in my hands, and was fast to load, zoom, and take pictures between shots (I purchased a good Class 10 SHDC memory card). This camera did well for outdoor pictures and pictures with good lighting, however it does lack quality when working at high ISO speeds.
Failed the amusement park/running after 7 children test.

Summary: I wanted to love this camera. I also wanted to spend some time looking over the manual, take some test shots and make some comparisons. As I suspected, however, the latter (and now sadly the former) never happened. Shutter speed, even on burst mode, is terrible. Almost every shot that had any movement was blurry. Low lighting shots the same. The amount of time between pressing the shoot button and the flash/taking picture event was LONG.
Summary: This phone has no USB charging capability, and uses a proprietary USB cable. If you are looking for something compact/lightweight you can carry around and not lose parts, you'd be better off with your phone camera I suppose. With this camera you'll no doubt eventually lose the cable and/or charger. Very disappointed in this design choice.
good basic camera for those who want to point & shoot

Summary: I bought this for a family member who knows nothing about cameras or photography and who has no interest in learning more than just push the button. :) So, when shopping for a camera for her, my criteria was - how good will it do on full auto. It needed to focus quickly and accurately and I wanted it to have reasonably nice image quality. I bought this and tested it out for a few days.
Summary: This camera had fantastic reviews and the price was definitely right! I was very excited to get it. I needed to replace my Kodak z1012, which is only 10mp. This one, at 16 mp, didn't take as good quality pictures. The good things about it were it's small size and lots of features. The bad things were the software (which had very little editing features) and the pictures themselves just weren't sharp.
Quality outdoors is beautiful , low light indoor shooting is a bit fuzzy
28 March 2012
Summary: The camera takes some clear and crisp pictures when outside.However , in auto mode , I see a lot of fuzziness , kinda hazy pictures when am shooting indoors.If I use the flash indoors , it is a bit OK but still unsatisfactory . I understand that cameras generally are not very good in low light/indoor conditions but my 4 year old canon takes much brighter and sharper images indoors and in low light. Anybody using it has some advice on some setting for low light?
