4.0 out of 5 stars Good portable P+S
By Displaced Californian on October 28, 2015
The WX-500 and it’s sibling the WX-350 take images and video that are overall very similar. I found the 350 first as an open box item for $175 and purchased it. The WX-350 lacks MAS-priority controls and an articulating screen and has only a limited number of video modes. The WX-500 has a variety of video modes and that was important to me because I bought it to do video soccer games etc. Articulating screen is nice for that as well. I have a PENTAX K-50 but it’s video is not great. This quite frankly takes better video.
I became frustrated with the WX-350 because of it’s lack of DSLR like controls and returned it and ordered this and I’m much more comfortable with having MAS-Priority modes. I don’t use my DSLR in auto mode and didn’t want to do that with a P+S either.

PROS (both)
Image quality (wow)
Video quality (wow)
Compact Size
Battery Life (much higher than most)

CONS (both)
Both models only open up to f/3.5 so not much bokeh with either.
The screen is not great. I took some fall foliage pics and on screen looked more brown than orange but on the computer the colors were accurate and popped. Did some macros as well and didn’t look good on the camera screen but were great on a computer monitor so don’t delete images until seen on your computer.

This will probably make a good backpacking camera due to it’s light weight, great image quality and long battery life. I would recommend the 350 for someone who only wants to point the camera and shoot and doesn’t care about controls. The 500 is not that much more but offers much more control of settings and is probably better for someone who already has a DSLR and is buying a second camera that is more portable.

Update: Have had it for a while now. Video is probably it's strongest point for purchasing. Images at low light and moderately high ISO (think 800+) can become quite noisy. iPhone actually has lower noise but (if you don't zoom with the iPhone) but the WX500 has lots of optical zoom. With the WX500 after about 15X zoom finding focus is nearly impossible and there is no manual focus. IMHO there's no reason to buy anything with more than 15X though. I've had a number of different P+Ss and NONE could focus well beyond 15X. LCD screen as others have said is not bright and difficult to see in bright sunlight

5.0 out of 5 stars Happy with this purchase
By LRT on August 8, 2017
I really like this camera. It has a nice zoom and wonderful picture quality. The selfie option is a big plus as well as the ease of the ability to transfer pictures from camera to phone. I used this camera on a recent cruise to Alaska and the pictures are so beautiful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best in class!
By Anne T on January 26, 2016
Love at first click! Best camera for travel, lightweight, super built in zoom, ZEISS lense , fabulous fashionable white body, easy to use, best feature you can take great selfies with the flip up feature. Used for family photos with a tripod, took with me to 3 week trip to Europe, a wedding, a shower, a 3 week trip to Egypt, my nieces bday parties, my birthday... And still have plenty of room on this card. It holds thousands of pics. Oh and the video feature is fantastic - takes gorg videos. Get this camera!
