It takes good pics but the camera itself has issues.
2 May 2014
Summary: I got this for Christmas last year (2013) and I loved it...well until about 2 mths ago that is. It started doing odd things and every time I put my SD card in I can only take 40pics before it says the memory is full. I have no idea why it says that. I upload my pics multiple times throughout the day to my computer so the SD is always empty from the previous uses. When I first got it I could have 300 pics or more on there at a time and now it won't let me go past 45 max!
Summary: I used a previous model before getting this one. This one has more zoom and higher res video, plus the wifi feature is neat. Older one, however, had a bigger screen, and more importantly, the videos could upload to my Mac. I'm still working on it but this model's AVCHD video format won't download along with the pics via my mac's iPhoto app. I'm sure there are some work arounds but that's a pain.
Summary: I like the size of this little camera but I was looking for something that would take pictures without too much hesitation between shots and this is not it. The quality of the picture is good but by the time I get the shot of my grandchild they have already moved and alot of their shots are from the back of their heads! I guess I need to spend alot more money if I want a camera that will click away when I need it to.
