Very nice camera that takes great pictures

jumacloud, Amazon
11 October 2014
  • Summary: Very nice camera that takes great pictures. I am still working on learning all of the features, so I cannot comment very much on the technical side of things. My only two complaints are that I wish there was an option to force the camera to use the flash and the placement of the movie recording button is horrible. Sometimes I want to use the flash even when it is technically bright enough not to.

Great camera, but annoying video software issues

J. Vanitegem, Amazon

  • Summary: Delivery was very quick, couldn't be better. So far the camera is doing very well (first couple days). I love the zoom, especially sitting in the nose bleed bleachers trying to capture a moment on the other side of the field. Pictures in low light conditions also turned out very nicely, so no issues there. I do have issue with the video feature though. It does 1920x1080@60p which is excellent, but typically only needed for high speed action like scooter tricks or so.

  • Summary: Excellent would strongly recommend. Instruction manual is bit scanty though and not easy, to say the least, to work out how to use some of the features

Good pics, but don't like the flimsy flash

Julie A. Hippler, Amazon

  • Summary: I like the picture quality, but am not crazy about the flimsy flash that pops up. I fully expect it to break, and don't like that I have to remember to press the flash button if I need flash. I like auto-flash, which I have had on every camera I have ever owned since the 90s.

Good value. The camera case is worthless

  • Summary: Good value. The camera case is worthless. The camera barely fits in it. But the 64 gb card and extra battery make it a good deal

A couple small issues so far

Saygrrr, Amazon
24 July 2014
  • Summary: So far I've jus taken a few trial shots and everything with the camera looks great so far! The only issues I'm having so far is that the screen protectors are low quality, I'll be buying better very quickly. The protector is already scratched up just trying to remove the air bubbles, which will not completely come out because of poor quality. (SEE EDIT)Also the Wasabi batteries do not fit in the Wasabi charger? I'll have my husband take a look when he gets home.

Great camera for the price!

Dan Leithauser, Amazon

  • Summary: Just 18 months ago, 30X (truly small and) compact point and shoots were not even available. Now in 2014 this category has a number of contenders. With respect to reviewers saying "DLSR quality" for this category (it always seems to be a headline in some reviews--no matter what model), it is not true, but don't let that deter you--picture quality can be high.

User Review

  • Excerpt: I really appreciate the 30x optical zoom in such a small form factor. Usage is for family photos and recording kids performances. I like the additional manual controls. Only dislike is having to engage the flash, but that's a minor thing.
