Good for simple picture taking
on March 23, 2015
I bought this camera so I could have something to take pictures with abroad, since I didnt want to carry my phone around. Overall, the camera does what it needs to do: take pictures. I have had a Nikon Coolpix in the past and a Canon Powershot, and overall I think the other ones I had were better than this one. The main issue I have with this camera is that it is 'slow.' It is slow to take pictures, slow to get ready to take another picture and slow to view the pictures. If you are someone who wants to take action shots, I would definitely not suggest this camera. Even with the sport mode on, it is pretty slow. The quality of the pictures is good, but I am not sure they are any better than my iPhone 6 photos.
I bought this camera used, so maybe I have a faulty one that takes slow pictures. If that is not the case, I would suggest this camera for someone who wants a simple point-and-shoot and maybe does not want to use a phone to take pictures. Other than that, I would not necessarily recommend it.
