Camera will blow you away, best camera i've ever owned!
on January 14, 2015
This camera is a MUST HAVE.
Im not a photographer or any kind, simply wanted something to take with me to events in NYC/Vacation/Special occasions, etc.
Purchased this camera because im going to Europe with some friends in June to Amsterdam and to attend Defqon.1 Weekend Festival. Being as attending this festival is one of my biggest dreams, and traveling from the US to Europe is no cheap feat, this will be a once in a lifetime thing. The only camera i've ever owned before this was some simply Nikon point-and-shoot with ZERO optical zoom and only digital zoom.
Im still waiting on my 64GB SDXC card to come in the mail from PNY. Of the pictures I did take using the internal memory, I was absolutely blown away. I've never had a device that can take pictures like this ever, they're stunning.
The amount of features this camera packs for $200 is staggering as well. As someone who knows very little about photography, i've been messing with this camera for hours the past couple days learning how to use the features correctly and fully. If you're getting this to simply use JUST the Auto mode and shoot pictures, you'd be happy, but do yourself a favor and take the time to learn what this camera can truly do. Take FULL advantage of the long list of awesome features this camera has, and im sure you'll be catching moments you never thought you could before.
If you're looking for something to take great photos of your family, events, etc without breaking the bank and without getting super, super technical, buy this. You won't regret it. If you're a professional photographer and are looking for something modular or with a list of features as long as the bible, you're looking at the wrong camera. While you can definitely take professional looking photos with this, the features list is no where near what a DSLR could do.
The pictures I uploaded are taken WITH this camera. Don't know if Amazon's site nerfs the quality upon upload, but these are pictures that I took with it. Im am very happy with this camera, definitely an awesome buy i'd do again no problem if I had to.
