Good except for delay in taking pictures
on 25 January 2007
Have had our camera for a couple of years now. Originally bought it because I had a Canon film SLR and it had the same functions on it (it can be used either as an automatic or manual). So in that respect it has been easy to get to know and use. Pictures are OK, but err towards the "snappy" side even on manual mode. My biggest gripe however, is that there is a delay of up to several seconds between pressing the button and it taking the photo. In many circumstances this isn't a problem, but when you're trying to take a photo of a fidgetty toddler, you miss it every time, and half the time they aren't even in the frame by the time the camera has actually taken the image. For me, this makes the camera pretty useless but if you want to use it for less spontaneous shots, then it is OK.
