  • Great easy to use camera
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Ktraup - September 9, 2018

    Bought this camera for our vacation, Pigion Forge, TN. Very easy to use, basically turn on and click away. The zoom is incredible, best I have ever had in a camera for this price so far. Takes great pics, easy view feature. I loaded it with a 32 gig memory card, so no chance of running out of memory like some cameras I had in the past. J could take hundreds of picks and not have to decide which memories I had to delete on the fly to take a new shot. I know there are a lot of better cameras out there for those who are more experienced photographers, but for the price and features, this camera is great if you are just trying to capture memories like I was.

  • It’s okay and here’s why
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Lexa - October 3, 2020

    I wanted a camera for my photography hobby. I am a beginner so it’s just a fun hobby for me. I decided to get this camera but I did not like it and returned it. The picture quality I found to be not so clear and it didn’t look so good. It was missing detail and it looked a little fuzzy. This is automatic so you can’t manually change settings. Instead I got the Nikon b500 and I like the picture quality way better, it’s clear, not fuzzy, sharp and detailed. However, this camera is not bad but it didn’t meet my standards. If you overlook those and think you can fix the quality then I recommend you do get it.

    Really like it. It's very light and compact which I wanted because I do not want to carry around a bulky and heavy camera. The camera does everything automatically or you can go into the easy to use menu for special features to enhance your photos. The user manual is easy to read and understand. It also comes with 42 times zoom and with a wide angle lens. In my opinion it's a lot of camera for the price. It does not come with a camera card though. I love the battery charger. You remove the battery and easily insert it into the charger and then plug it into the electrical socket. When you are travelling abroad it will easily fit into a plug adapter system as well. It comes with a wrist band, battery and charger.
