Ease of Use: Good
- Okay for a point and shoot, but it's no DSLR.- May 8, 2017
I purchased this as a supplement to carry with my Nikon DSLR. There are times when I have a zoom lens only with me and wanted the freedom to shoot close up or zoom. While my main camera does most of the work, this lighter weight camera is good to carry along. It can deliver sharp images from a distance, however I found the auto focus to be a bit weak. Even close up auto focusing seems a little weak. The screen size and ability to view at different angles is good, but you must be accustomed to using the screen only when composing a shot. Personally it is much easier for me to look into a viewfinder. Overall not a bad camera, but for the price, I can't recommend it as an only camera.No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
- Wonderful camera for getting into photography- April 16, 2017
I have been searching for a new camera for a few years now when one of my friends recommended this one to me. I was a bit skeptical at first since different sites had mixed reviews but I buckled down and bought it. When it arrived I wasted no time in using it. The photo quality is amazing! I love the crisp shots the zoom takes and how vibrant the colors look. Lighting is much of an issue since I enjoy the auto setting. It takes decent night shots (even got some beautiful pictures of the moon). Overall Its a great camera and I'd recommend it.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Value!- November 9, 2016
I was shopping for a camera that was more than an ultra compact point & shoot, but not quite a DLSR. Picture quality a must. The ability to use the Snapbridge function for immediate social media posting was a seller! As this is being used for business purposes. While the initial set up for Snapbridge with my iPhone 6 was tedious; it is so worth it! I called the tech support line twice to assist with the program as the firmware on the camera needed to be updated first. But now it works like a dream! Love this camera and would recommend it!Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
