poor battery life
6 March 2014
Summary: great pictures, easy to use but battery life is terrible. Another issue is that both the memory card and the battery are behind the same little door and that means it will not last long. Battery is confusing to install and could easily be forced in backwards.
Summary: I was pretty upset that I paid for expedited shipping and it didn't arrive to me in time, but other than that, but other than that the camera was in working condition. A bit more scratched than I'd hoped.
Summary: When I bought this camera, I read reviews and researched quite a bit before buying. I should have listened to the people who said this camera was not all that great! For all the hype that the description gives, it's really not all that great. I was replacing a Canon point and shoot that had an aperture malfunction and I guess once you go Canon, you never go back! This one just doesn't live up to my Canon.
Summary: I won't call myself a photography expert but this little camera is great. The controls are easy to use and for those who like more customisation the menus seem easy to understand even without reading the instruction manual. The pictures are clean and clear and are of fantastic quality. This camera is just right for the price.
Summary: Don't believe the folks that have said that this camera has a metal BODY. It has a metal FRONT and everything else is plastic. The camera is nice but the all plastic bottom is too loose and opens too easily and should be addressed. In fact, it's a defect to where I should return the camera but I won't because it's not worth sending the whole camera back. All in all, it's a nice camera, takes decent pictures but the build quality leaves a lot to be desired!
Summary: This camera takes beautiful pictures when it's a sunny day. That is, if you're willing to wait for the shutter delay. It hesitates and sometimes doesn't even capture the picture. If it's dark out or you're indoors, then forget it. You'll get a bunch of blurry pictures and squiggly lines. If you do manage to take a decent picture, you'll be disappointed when you load it onto your computer. Many of my pictures comes out very soft and washed out.
