I bought this camera at Walgreens in Black Earth, WI. My main thought was for a camera with a higher Mega Pixel count for higher resolution photos when I want to take digital images to maybe later sell prints of and have generally high quality imagery. It was to tandem with my Toshiba PDR-3300 Camera.
As size, weight, and value go… It is small and lightweight for those who want something that fits into your pocket and includes a wrist strap which would be good for someone with smaller hands. Mine do not fit into the strap. The value is average… I paid about $30-$50 for it figuring higher MP count and extra digital zoon where main factors for it’s price.
Sadly I’ve come to find that this camera also has no manual settings other than the image size; mode setting ( day, night, etc); Anti-Shake; and a setup guide for the date, time, ISO, and LCD Brightness. While taking photos became immediately obvious that the camera’s lack of settings made getting a controllable/repeatable product was impossible. If your in a sunny day with the camera facing away from the sun and no trees over or around what your shooting – your okay and will get a very nice photo; All other times you will find your images much lighter or darker than wanted.
The images as you increase image size will turn most detailed areas into a more pixilated blur and after 7M will turn automatically into the widescreen format. Focus is solely the discretion of the camera itself with no manual options. This camera will also skew subjects moving at a faster rate of speed beyond a walk.
This is a great point-and-shoot camera for younger photographers, those who are taking family/vacation images, and the general public who are not doing more than taking and saving the image on their computer. This is NOT a camera for those more involved in photography, wishing to create product images, or images for work including modeling or Landscape. The battery life and quick photo upload without need of "fluff-ware" is of the few advantages I personally have found for this item.
I am a professional and I use a Nikon D200. I saw my wife had purchased this camera so I asked her to let me use it. I was going to see the Bobcats with a bus load of guys. I took this camera small video camera. I shot some fantastic stills
on the way there and at the game as well. When I got home I decided to make a video for my friends an WOE what a response I got. Its not like a single lens reflex as you shoot automatic so you get what you get.Picks up light well in with low light night shots. And close up with or without flash is amazing.I almost spent $300.00 for more gadgets on the cameras,, but if you know how to take a nice pic use this one and save a lot of money. Now they may raise the price on them since I wrote this review. Get one,, have fun,relax, a camera is just a machine you can be an artist with this one.I take it to work and everywhere,I may use it at a wedding when t just want a simple shot of a cake or some person at the wedding
Nice and cute camera. Affordable price and easy to use. It fits in your small purse and very handy to take anywhere you go (camping, beaches, picnic with your family to capture the moments). One thing, need more light if you take video. Capture image it's fine because you can use flash in your camera. Really good quality if use this 8.1 megapixel camera outdoor( video or still capture). Best buy! I decided to bought this digital camera for my little sister so easy for her to use and capture her activities in school. Thanks.
