5.0 out of 5 stars
Best camera I have owned....., 2 Sep 2011
I bought this camera just before a trip to Turkey. I had previously owned a Sony which I think may have had a fault from purchase as if I took 5 identical pictures, 2 or 3 would be blurry. I contemplated a SLR but wanted to have something that slipped into the pocket and could be taken anywhere and not have to fear leaving on a table or suchlike. I was a little apprehensive that the photo's may not be the quality I sought but weighed up size, cost and spec and went for this one.
And how happy I am with it. In fact, the best camera I have owned. It has put to shame the photo's from the rest of the family ones taken on hols and what is great is that the quality is so good that I could take random ones, zoom in afterwards and get a perfect picture.
I was particularly impressed with the zoom on it. Didn't expect much from such a compact camera but the natural zoom was fantastic and then the digital zoom was very impressive. Even when zoomed right out, the picture would look grainy until you hit the button and it all went perfect.
This camera is perfect for those who just want to take a picture, the camera works everything out. But by the flick of a switch, it goes into manual and you can choose your settings. I know very little about ISO, aperture, shutter speeds etc so its pointless me trying to work out what they should be. So I let the camera do the work.
The video is excellent. Full HD quality, okay does take up a lot of memory but the playback is brilliant and the sound was very very good.
Would recommend a big memory card. I went for 16gb which was only £20 or so and I took 350 highest quality pictures and about 15 mins of highest quality video and it took up 6gb.
All in all, a fantastic product!!!!
