  • Overall Great Camera!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by PhotoTakinMomma - December 13, 2019

    With 2 young kids, i was looking for something I could capture all the memories and milestones with. The 4K recording is awesome and the pictures are phenomenal! The only reason i removed 1 star is because there is a delay between pics. I have read the manual and even consulted CS and its just one downside of the camera. There is a continuous shot mode, but if you are looking to capture high quality pics, there is a delay. With young kids, you may one have a brief second between a great shot and a terrible one, so for me the delay is a downside. Overall I would recommend the camera as its a pretty great camera within its pricing category.

  • Great camera!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Kim2020 - October 31, 2020

    This is a good camera, if you know how to use it. Don’t expect to purchase this camera and whip it out of the box to take an amazing photo, you will need to adjust the settings depending on the type of photo. For example, higher shutter speed (ISO) to take a photo of a moving object such as a waterfall. I researched this camera hard before purchasing and learned quickly that all the negative reviews were from people who did not know how to work a cameras settings, or had dropped it hard enough it stopped functioning. I give this camera four stars because I’m still learning to use it myself but am very pleased with it. Also, TAKE A PHOTO OF THE MOON FULLY ZOOMED IN!!!

  • It’s like a Mini Canon 5D with wifi
    Reviewed by AgentSaner - January 2, 2020

    I was looking for a small handheld camera to take on adventures, with out having to lug around my canon 5D mark iii, as it’s way to heavy. This camera reminded me of a mini 5D with WiFi, the quality is by far better than I imagined. See my test shot of the moon standing in my living room last night, taken on auto mod. then I zoomed in & wow the photo speaks for itself. The WiFi set up with my iPhone 11 pro was very easy to set up & I love the easy access to transfer photos from the camera to the phone. I highly recommend regardless if you have any experience or not this camera will have you shooting photos like a pro.
