Overall good, but has some issues
on May 31, 2013
I purchased this product from Focus Camera (great seller, by the way), which was fulfilled by Amazon. I love all the features this camera has, and did experiment with them when the camera first arrived. I have a Canon T2i as my primary camera, but as a mom on-the-go, I wanted a small point-and-shoot to carry in my purse at all times to have handy for any and all photo moments. Overall I really like the camera. Its size is unbelievably small and compact. The picture quality is decent for a point-and-shoot. As I mentioned, has many extra "fru-fru" functions (different camera effects) but very little manual control, which was fine for me for my purposes with this camera, but if you're looking for a camera that you can change up ISO, f-stop, shutter speed, etc., this is not the camera. My two major complaints are:
1. The battery/memory card slot door is VERY flimsy. For as much as I open and close that thing, I'm not sure how it will hold up over time. Additionally, the door does not close tightly. I don't know if that's an issue with just mine, or if that's across the board on this camera. I feel like I should loop a rubber band around the camera a few times so it's securely closed.
2. At least 50% of the time when I turn the camera on, it tells me that there's no memory card in the camera when there is. Also, I will sometimes have to press the power button several times in order to get it to turn on or off.
As I said, overall it's a good camera. Not sure if the issues I'm having are exclusive to mine alone or if other owners of the camera have similar issues.
