Dusty dusty dusty

Maggie P., Amazon
3 December 2013
  • Summary: I really liked this camera at first. Easy point and shoot, could often get decent pictures of my squirmy 3 month old, held its charge, etc... But after a month a spot of dust got inside the lens. No big deal, right? Just move the camera off-center and no one will notice.

Gets the job done

Jezreel N., Newegg
27 September 2012
  • Summary: I take hundreds of pictures in an indoor environment with good lighting and Eye-Fi to wirelessly send the pictures directly to a server. Overall, this camera gets the job done without spending too much fiddling with it.
  • Pros: Works as advertised. Takes good pictures.
  • Cons: It does not come with a wall charger. You have to plug a USB cable directly to the camera. If you get spare batteries, this is a hassle to use the camera as a charger.

Disappointing .....may improve now

  • Summary: I've been disappointed with this purchase, but a friend has just pointed out that it was operating with 640x480 pixels instead of 2448 x 3264 pixels! Why would the factory settings be like this?

  • Summary: Bought this on the basis of reviews and functionality. Received today, and first impressions were very positive. It is a lovely little camera to hold and looks great. After putting in the battery and memory card and setting the clock I took 5 photos.
