I do truly like this camera. pictures come out nice, very easy to use. very portable and LOVE that it's waterproof-I float on my raft and snap pics of the kids in the pool, I submerge it completely without worry or trouble. The instruction manual was a bit too basic (should have explained what the functions are for, not just how to get to them). and, adding a peek hole style view finder would have been wise because relying on the LCD screens can be a real challenge in the sun-light due to the glare. There are times I can not see the screens at all or know what I am looking at at all due to the sun glare (to the point I am unsure if the camera is even on). A peek hole view finder would solve that as well as cut down on battery use (the screens can suck alot of power). but, even still, I like the camera. I had thought both screens could be used at one (making it possible for the person I am photographing to see what I see as well) but that isn't the case, it's one or the other, a button on top allows you to toggle between which screen.
I have other SLR's but is easier than a SLR. I bought this as a present to my self for a more simlpler camera to use when I am out , It has Everything My SLR has but way easier to use no lenseto change with the 26 optical zoom which is futher than my other camera's . With the Large LCD screen and the option for picture taking on top the camera including the smart function any one can take a great pic. In a nutshell I was Very Pleased with My New Toy and can't wait till spring and Summer to go and and get some Great shots.
After hours of researching which camera to buy for my husband for Christmas, I settled for this item over others due to the price and all that came with the camera. I was going to send it back after discussing with my husband about what type of cameras he did and did not like. Needless to say, he said he did not like Canon cameras. I was bummed for I had already received the item by this time. I was able to get ahold of the seller who was kind enough to let me send the camera back. However, when I told my husband to take the box to ship off, he refused saying that he wanted to keep whatever Christmas gift I bought him. Well long story short, he is in love with this camera and all that came with it. He is so happy with how the pictures are turning out that he wants to keep it. Thank you so much seller for this item. He is like a kid in a toy store every time he picks up the camera and tries out each lens. All I have seen since he has opened his gifts has been nothing but smiles and many heartfelt “Thank You’s” from him.
