The camera only has a Japanese menu on the screen

  • Summary: I bought the camera with the perception that the manual and instructions were in Japanese. This was not a problem because I found a manual on line in English. When I received the camera and turned it on everything was in Japanese.

Just not for me

  • Summary: This might be a nice camera for someone that is a photographer and really knows about cameras, it was too complicated for me. I actually have a huge camera with telephoto lens, cannon D something and I found that easier to use than this camera.

  • Excerpt: My wife wanted a new camera before we went on an overseas trip late last year.  She knew exactly what she wanted.  It had to be compact, white, have a grip and a reasonably long telephoto.  Image quality was not a consideration!  This camera gets pretty good reviews.

  • Summary: This went back! I used it on a trip to the beach and the viewing screen was impossible to see outside. So I had to aim in the general direction of whatever my subject was, but could see nothing. I will say that the photo quality was very good, thus 2 stars, not one.

disapointing

Hmmmm - Japanes

Too Many Toys, Amazon

  • Summary: I guess I should have asked. All the menus are in Japanese, some have English words in them in addition to the Japanese, most don't. All the buttons are labelled in English. I wonder who this is targeted towards. Awesome pictures, but very difficult to use as I can't read Japanese.
