Does well enough
19 June 2014
Summary: This was purchased as a gift for a family member, but I've gotten to fuss around with a bit aswell. The pictures are very nice, the video slightly less so. For the price I paid it's quite nice.
Summary: This camera is my 4th point and shoot over the past few years and my second Sony. Firstly, the camera design and feel is all good with fairly easy controls and very lightweight yet solid. Compared to other cameras this took pics much faster (less delay) with highest resolution settings. It seems to constantly be auto adjusting the focus when On, which may be helping it respond faster which was great for catching moments. Resolution at zoom was pretty good as well.
Summary: Had higher performance expectations. Glad my Coolpix 6000 still works. Battery life varies. Colors can be bright at times, but some stills have white-out. Video is great, but don't like file saving names. Video shots are NOT saved in sequential order with still shots. Play Memories software can be quirky at times. Will stay with Nikon Brand.
Summary: Takes terrific pictures, no matter what the weather conditions are like or how much light is on the subject. But the battery does not hold out for a long day's photography and it will fail you just as you find the shot of a lifetime!
Summary: Works just like the reviews said it would. Has a built-in guide, takes good pictures, simple to understand. Wish it had a viewfinder, but cameras in this price range do not have them. Other than that, it is fine.
Summary: Bought for a vacation at the beach and took great pics, but not at first. Too Orange and surreal. Use the Easy mode. In this mode not great in low light but we did not do much at night anyway. Kids loved it. Takes great video too. Feels good in the hand. Decent build quality. No plastic. Only had it for two months will update later. Happy with purchase. Would buy again. Got the package deal with case and sim. Great deal for $100.
Summary: Camera arrived few weeks ago but has not been tested enough to rate fairly. The order came quick and I like how it is easy to follow and figure out. Need to use more to really give true rating. Happy so far.
Summary: I've been wanting a camera that does in-camera panoramas so I decided to get this one. I've been testing it for several weeks now and I am very pleased with the pano shots I have gotten. It takes a little practice and trial and error, but even in low light it produces gorgeous shots. I'm not as happy with the quality of the zoomed shots however, they are very grainey and out of focus, which is why it didn't get 5 stars.
Summary: Finally, a new camera to replace my old point and shoot that has been defective. For more than a year, my old Sony digital camera has failed to work. But with cellphones taking nearly as good pictures, I was too slow to buy a new standalone digital camera. I knew I wanted something beyond the built-in camera in my cellphone (my phone, a Sony Xperia, takes fairly good pictures).
