VERY slow

C. Martin, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this camera after reading reviews that said it's image quality was among the best of budget digital cameras. After using the camera for several months, I would be willing to sacrifice some image quality for speed. This camera is insufferably slow. The moment I was hoping to capture is usually passed by the time the camera focuses on it's subject to the time the camera has snapped the picture. And if you're using flash forget about it.

  • Summary: On paper, this camera sounds great. It looks good, the black body is slick and it feels good to hold. It takes AA batteries and has a 5x zoom. All very nice. But none of that matters because it's terrible. Image quality is poor- too noisy at any ISO. And it's just so slow... really slow to focus, and incredibly slow between shots using the flash. I don't expect miracles, but by the time this thing cycles, your subject has already gone home.
