Not the sharpest images
on August 9, 2013
First, it has been months since I bought this camera and I spent some time learning the features before I reviewed it.
The camera is easy to use, all of the functions are easily accessible with only a few button presses, many at the press of a single button.
The camera can use re-chargeable or disposable AA batteries and has the best battery life I have ever seen with a digital camera, period. I used the batteries that came with the camera for over weeks of daily use without changing them. I had some inexpensive $1 batteries on hand from the Dollar Tree and replaced the original batteries with those and it is still going strong.
The design fits nicely in your hand and all of the buttons are within easy reach.
The camera is loaded with features.
The autofocus is poor unless the lighting is great.Using this camera with a tripod and lightbox with daylight bulbs indoors, the images often turn out grainy and blurry, I have to use extra lights to get sharp images. I actually have a cheap $50 Kodak camera that takes better photos indoors, though, outdoors in natural light, the images are stunning.
The video is extremely poor, it looks like the video from a cheap cell phone camera, unless you are in bright light, such as outside on a sunny day.
