Disappointing - 3.5 out of 5
on 22 November 2012
When you can purchase the Wi-Fi version of this camera (with cash back) for £119.95 at Jessops, its disappointing that an outlet like Amazon charge £129.95 for the NON Wi-Fi version - Wi-Fi connectivity being the only thing that truly elevates this camera above its many peers in the compact digital range!
That aside, it's a standard digital camera, with - warning! - in my findings, a significant increase in noise as you go to ISO800 and over, and slight noise in lower settings.
On reflection, I should have told my family member to shop around, before they bought me this as a gift. But, not ungratefully, it is an improvement on my previous Fuji, which required 24hours notice that I intended to take a photograph!! (or so it seemed, sometimes) This IS faster, but the Panasonic range would have been my choice, or even the Canon cigarette boxes...excuse me, I meant Ixus! ;)
There are better cameras out there for this price, or very close to it. It's well worth shopping around the photography websites, to see what they think, rather than the "trusted" reviews that come out with the advertising blurbs.
