I wanted so badly to love this camera
25 June 2012
Summary: Where do I start? The features on this camera are amazing. The burst shooting modes, the 1080p video, the 20x zoom, the manual controls, scene modes, handling, and menus, are stunning and as close to perfect as you can get - at any price point for a camera that easily fits into a pocket. This camera seemed a bargain for the features. So why two stars? Poor picture quality. I have a camera with $400-camera features and $125-camera photo quality.
Summary: Unlike most of the other reviews, my experience with this camera was not good and I returned it. I researched quite a bit and thought I was buying a good point and shoot. I really wanted something that would allow me to leave my DSLR at home except for special occasions. Maybe I got a bum lens or CCD, but the pictures just were not that good. There was no crispness, and the colors seemed washed out and even unnatural.
