In most ways it's a very simple camera to use relatively few modes and quick access to the most of the settings it won't confuse users straight forward operation. In the box you get:
4 x AA alkaline batteries
Lens cap and a cord to attach it
USB cable and strap
It's nice to have the batteries included but you will get much more shots from good quality rechargeable cells we have a lot around so use them and keep the included ones as a spare set.
Main appeal of this was the big 28x zoom lens this gives a field of view over 600mm equivalent for a larger camera, I was concerned about shaky images but this model does have lens based vibration reduction which helps quite a lot keeping shots steady and the wider end is really wide more than most compacts I've used (I think it's about 22mm). Close up shots are also possible as it can get as close as 1cm mid way though the range. Images are quite good for the price I'm quite pleased with the results both photos and video you couldn't get this range out of a phone or tablet camera. There are times I miss not having a viewfinder as this would help to hold it steadier the focus can be a little slow in dim lighting it's quite good in daylight, still it's a really nice camera that doesn't cost a lot but the large zoom range makes it a very flexible choice. Just remember to get a good set of batteries we get over 500 shots per charge it's about half that with cheap disposable cells.
Bridge cameras have been game changing in the photographic world, and have given photo consumers a third way to enjoy the hobby.
Before bridge cameras your choice was either a very simple, 'point and shoot' camera or an expensive SLR or rangefinder camera.
For most people the 'point and shoot' was a great introduction, but the jump from that to a full blown system SLR for equally expensive rangefinder camera was a bit too much. Both in terms of cost and also in terms of additional facilities they were never likely to actually use.
The bridge camera sits nicely between these two options. This camera, like most bridge cameras, does not have a removable lens that can be interchanged for a variety of longer or shorter lenses. Instead, the fixed lens does the job of a wide angle to zoom lens all by itself by virtue of some clever optical machinery.
This model, one of the least expensive cameras of this type, is made by a well known manufacturer, Nikon. They have been making cameras for a long time and, back in 1971 when I started Art School, I used a Nikon SLR camera for my photography module.
So, with at least 45 years of my lifetime to perfect a camera, have they got out right?
Well, yes, for the most part I think they have.
The camera is delightfully small and lightweight. It is easy to operate, with the on/off switch on the top alongside the shutter release button and the 'zoom to wide' lever.
On the back panel there is a good, large bright viewing screen, the movie start/stop record button, scene selector, gallery button, trash button, menu button and an OK button.Read more ›
I tried it out for the first time at a Charity Event and the pictures were very good. It's easy to use, the strap means easy to carry and switches from one function to another easily and quickly.
