Summary: I have had this camera for about 3 weeks and am seriously considering returning it. I am so dissappointed with it. I should mention, it is complicated, and you do have to read the manual! That being said, and this time of year, I have not read it completely. I can only hope that when I do, some serious changes will take place. However, as far as picking up this camera and going, and being able to just shoot numerous pictures, it is AWFUL!!!
Summary: I bought this camera for a trip to South Amnerica and wanted something portable. My daughter had a function at school prior to my trip so I tested it there. As I have read the lens cap is cheap and won't stay on. I took indoor pictures at the school and they were all horrible.I took the camera and tried outdoor wildlife pictures. The camera was hard to handle and the pictures were fair at best. I would not recommend this camera.
Summary: I kept this camara for almost 30 days and just could not really love it. The pictures were just ok. The zoom shot blurry usually. Some of the shooting modes were not as good as the auto, The batteries were terrible. Would only last through one day of shooting with family around. Alot of the pictures were blurry.Too much of a delay in the shutter speed. Missed alot of shots. Sent it back and bought a LL110 nikon. Pictures as good as an slr, which I own.
Summary: Received it today, returning it today. The zoom is cool. The images are very poor. My antique Casio QV3000 3.4MP takes extremely better pix. You can forget about indoor images, they are horrible. I typically use a Canon DSLR but it is unfair to compare the images to a DSLR so I compared to my very old Casio. The Casio wins hands down. Just my opinion but I am very disappointed.
Summary: Camera arrived ok in good time; fortunately, my knowledge of French allowed me to read the start-up guide. If I'd been a monolingual anglophone, I would have been in the proverbial merde. Oh yes, and the charger had a continental 2-pin plug on it. It would have been nice to receive UK spec equipment.
