Awesome picture quality! Great camera for the money.
4 July 2013
Summary: It is a great digital camera because of picture quality, very high speed and very handy. It is not too small and perfect size to operate. I would like to have a zooming function even it is 3 times. No zooming is still fine. This is beyond comparison with standard digital cameras with more features.
Summary: I'm in the design field so anything smartly designed is appealing. Love that this camera does only a few things but does it well. The lens is amazing and the more you play with the camera, the more you appreciate the ergonomics and menu system. Normally I'm an automatic point and shoot guy but it is easy to get your head around the controls after a short learning period and you can intuitively adjust settings.
Excerpt: The GRD4 is what some say a small upgrade for the GRD3. This in fact is not the case. The GRD4 is way ahead of the 3. The screen is wonderful in any light. The hybrid AF system really speeds up the focusing and improves accuracy even in low light. The images appear to have more contrast and sharper. The new filters are really nice and can be accessed by the jog lever. All in all it's a great camera and a worthwhile upgrade. Problems: Just one.
Summary: This is my favorite point and shoot. Details are well covered in many camera forums. I bought it because it has manual controls and good ergonomics for dialing in your exposure and focus manually. So it's sort of a choice for pros as a backup camera. I limitation is the 6mm sensor. You certainly don't get the image quality of a larger 24mm or 35mm sensor camera. But for a sub-$1000 point and shoot its fine.
