Disappointed

Overstock
8 January 2009
  • Summary: Skip this camera. Bought this as a gift - for someone who simply wants point and shoot, with no regrets if its accidentally dropped / broken. Seems the flash needs to be manually turned on -- which is a convolution of menu items. Menu options are not saved when the shot is taken. Ohh well, so much for capturing the Kodak Moment. Battery Hog - While using it for the first time, we have replaced the batteries twice - we use Duracell.

  • Summary: While the quality of the camera is not state of the art, it is pretty decent for the price. My 12 year old daughter is thrilled with it.

  • Summary: Even at the top level of fidelity, called FINE, the pictures have a lot of blurry areas because of image compression. End result is that the pictures with this 5M camera look worse that a similar picture with my 2M Canon. If they really have the 5M pixels on the sensor, they should improve the software to take use of this. The only saving grace on the camera is the waterproof case. It is nice to take it rafting without having to worry about getting it wet.

  • Summary: I bought this to test for an upcoming trip to Hawai'i (want an underwater digicam for snorkeling). I was initially impressed by the housing but the camera was awfully light. A quick inspection showed why. The SD port cover is a rubber "plug" (similar to the covers for USB ports, etc on most digital cameras). No big deal, but I could see it coming off with rough use.

  • Excerpt: ...l punto di forza di questa fotocamera è il prezzo. Quando l'ho comprata, nel novembre del 2007, era l'unica che ho trovato sotto i 100 euro. Un'alternativa un po' più cara é la sua sorella maggiore, la Vivitar Vivicam 6200 che costa sui 150 euro. Avrei vo ...
