Big disappointment

Littlduck15 "littlduck", Amazon
11 September 2014
  • Summary: Big disappointment! I really liked this camera when I got it. It is super easy to set and use, the pictures are great. However, while shooting on a very mild summer day in the middle Eastern USA, the camera locked up after about shots and that was the end of it. The book had said that it might overheat in hot humid jungle type climates, but I was no where near there. The manual said to let it cool off and all would be okay, so I did.

cheap junk

  • Summary: This camera felt rather flimsey and the battery door was a pain to use. But, for the price I thought it might be okay, I was wrong. It froze up after about 20 shots so I sent it back the second day and replaced it with a fuji. I have 3 DSLRs and one is a really nice Pentax, I thought this would be pretty good for a walk about camera. Not so. Amazon was great about my returning it though, I'd give them 5 stars, but the camera 0 if I could.

Very good camera while it last!!

  • Summary: I was really impressed by this camera, however, 3 months it had to be re-calibrated because the focus went out. Now 17 months down the line, 5 months out of warranty consigned to the scrap unless I am prepared to pay £168 repairs for similar focusing problem. I only paid £165 for it. Clearly a good reason to have extended warrantly, but why? Surely this product should last more than 17 months. Very poor and disappointed.

Kamera kam defekt an

Rüdiger Mattutis, Amazon
2 January 2014
  • Summary: 31.12. Lieferung schnell und frustfrei wie immer. Ausgepackt, Batterien rein, auch der Batteriedeckel kein Problem. Ist etwas fummelig, geht aber. Erste Bilder gemacht, dann das aus. Die Kamera hängt sich auf !!! Erst durch entfernen der Akkus und neu einlegen wieder startklar. Dann nach 3/4 Bildern wieder !!! Läßt sich nnicht mehr auslösen oder eine Funktion tätigen. Erst durch entfernen der Akkus wieder startklar. Das ganze 5-6 mal.

  • Excerpt: Только купил. Включаю. Меню Английский. Выбираю Русский, подтверждаю ОК. Пользуюсь, затем выключаю. Опять включаю и опять английский. При включении камеры выбрасывает всегда в меню. Нафик её.
  • Pros: Чуть лучше мыльницы.
  • Cons: проблемма с меню.
