PhineasT, Amazon

  • Summary: Sloooow focus Slooooow shutter release. Sooooo sloooooow Make sure all subjects are standing still, kinda like Brady in the 1850s All photos come flat and low contrast. White balance is a joke - ALWAYS need major correction in post. Careful, folks. Just the worst camera I have ever tried to use.

Big disappointment

Littlduck15 "littlduck", Amazon

  • 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.

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.

Very good camera while it last!!

David Jones, Amazon

  • 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.

Viele Features, aber schlechte Bilder...

Phil1969, Amazon
5 May 2015
  • Summary: Sehr enttäuschende Kamera. Die Bilder sind extrem verrauscht, selbst bei niedriger Auflösung macht eine einfache Handykamera schärfere Bilder. Meine uralte Dimage Z10 macht bei 3 Megapixel besser Bilder. Die Bilder der X5 sind weder scharf noch kontrastreich.

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.

  • 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.

No me convence.

  • Summary: Quería una cámara para mejorar una panasonic lumis dmc-fx37 de 10Mp y zoom óptico 5x. Evidentemente tiene mas Mp (16) y un zoom óptico mucho mayor, 26X. Tiene pantalla abatible, lo que permite sacar fotos a la altura de los niños, sin tener que agacharte, lo cual es muy cómodo.
