You will really enjoy the X-5

  • Summary: This is a great bridge camera - whether used on auto or in full manual mode. The zoom is unbelievable. I can get a full body shot of a water skier on the opposite shore of Donner Lake. I recommend a tripod for exploring the full extent of the zoom, though.

  • Summary: Ok I love the camera, this is my first bridge camera ever, I wanted it for a introduction photography class so it has a lot of features that you can play with, it has the moving screen, also you can look through the viewer if you prefer, nice size and weight.

cool looking camera that works pretty great

  • Summary: I like this camera. I carry it to work on a construction site to take pictures of work conditions and equipment and I also use it for more artistic work. The viewfinder is pretty good for one thing as it has a good diopter adjust and it is easy to use.

Great landscape pics but not for action shots

Cathy, Amazon
15 June 2014
  • Summary: I use this camera as a back up to 2 others that I have. I wanted a camera that would take good scenery shots. I did not get it intending to use it for action shots and that is a good thing because there is significant shutter lag in between shots.

  • Summary: I was very surprised by the image quality of this camera. My intent with the camera was to have something light and portable when I didn't want to lug around my DSLR and its lenses. If fulfills that requirement nicely.

  • Summary: If you've moved back to slrs of the digital kind, you will probably think this is one slugglsh and low light hating camera. If you have stayed mostly with the altoid container-sized point and shoots, you will probably find this to be quite an amazing sub $200 camera.

Under Exposure?

3 November 2013
  • Summary: At this point I don't know if I even qualify as a hobbyist but I did want a dependable camera in the bridge category for special events and vacation photography and with due acknowledgement of the ego factor, at least look like I might have some photographic skills without taking on the full...
