I too, like the first rating for this product did not receive a tripod when it was in the description and photos when I bought it. I threatened to write a review as bad as that one if I did not receive what I bought. The service rep got on it and spoke with his manager and helped me out. I am expecting a tripod in the mail now. That said, all you really want from this kit is the camera, batteries, and an SD card. Everything else is a bonus and the price was good when I got it (Sale for ***). Sony a6000's with e-mount lens only occasionally comes up for the price so I thought this was the time. You can read and watch SEVERAL reviews online for this camera so by now you should know what you are getting. I was not impressed with the camera bag and will continue using what we already have been using but it could be useful for someone who doesn't have a bag. I'm likely to part with mine. I do like that this kit came with 2 batteries since they are notorious for needing more than one for shoots. Bummer it didn't come with a charger so you can only charge when the battery is in the camera. Another plus is an SD card reader that plugs into your USB port...that is slick. Looking forward to using this camera for personal / family / business purposes. Happy to find it at the price!
There are way better camera's out there. The big selling point to this camera is it can get wet and that's it. I got this camera for free through a work promotion. I wasn't expecting much from it so I took a chance on it. It says you can take it under water but I doubt I'll risk it. I looked at the reviews online before I got it and the reviews were mixed. Most people by this time use their phone to do photos and videos which are just as good. Pros: 1. Windows 7 discovered it quickly and no software needed to install. You could see the camera right away in Explorer. 2. 20 megapixels is good quality. The AVI videos are 640 x 480 screen size. Not 20 megapixels high quality but aren't too bad. 3. The Selfy option is nice. 4. The Video camera is more useful than the still photos. Cons: 1. Opening the slot to load the batteries and MicroSD card is difficult. I suppose it's because the camera has to be waterproof and air tight? 2. Connecting the camera cable to your pc requires you to open the battery slot. Turning it on while the slot is open is tricky. This is a poor design. Better to remove the Micro SD card and insert that into your laptop IF you pc has that option. 3. No stabilization mode so if you shake you hand when taking a still photo the picture will be very blurry. 4. Requires a MICRO SD card (NOT INCLUDED ) 5. Uses 2 TRIPLE AAA batteries (included) and they get used up quickly. Approximately 30 minutes if left on. 6. A little hard to figure out what button does what, but after you fumble through the options, you'll figure out how to use it. The navigation is clumsy. 7. There's a port on the left side of the camera with no explanation at all in the manual. What's it for? Flower icon is for closeups, the other option is for regualr photos. My camera was set in the middle and I learned this the hard way. KNOW THIS! THIS IS IMPORTANT! 8. The Auto settings are not always right, this is NOT a point a shoot camera. Leaving everything on auto does not give you the best photo results. 9. The flash is WAY TOO POWERFUL! It turns everything white if your too close. DO YOUR HOMEWORK Shop & compare FIRST before you buy anything! KNOW exactly what your needs are and what you want. If your hands shake, they DO make cameras that won't be blurry if you move your hand, this is NOT that kind.
We were very impressed with the unpackahing of this little camera! It had more in the box than we had anticipated and everything was easy to assemble for use. We bought this camera for my 13 year old who is an inspiring photographer I'm she absolutely loves it and the durability is a plus! Will definitely recommend this product!
