Sony Final Thoughts

"I do have one problem."

Maybe it is for a small POS. Where this Sony really shines though is the video recording oddly enough. I get great photos, and it does not take long to import them to my laptop. I am so impressed with this Sony ! No other 8k Point & Shoot Digital Camera of this size is fast and have the quality of this Sony .

"Nikon wake up!"

I was honestly surprised that I could find anything like this on Amazon. I was pretty skeptical buying another point and shoot. The battery life is outstanding, lasted her whole two week trip with moderate use. Reduced kit by one star since enclosed camera bag is too small for camera. Nikon, however, has always had colors that are exactly as our eyes see it!

I love the LED light and extra batteries for the camera and light. Excellent two characteristics in a 8k Point & Shoot Digital Camera. Its really the camera to take on day trips. Been looking for a easy to use, simple 8k Point & Shoot Digital Camera. Or, you can select all-manual, if you want to set everything yourself.

"Just kidding."

During my search, I discovered that the Fujifilm 4547410339017 was about to be released. This is great because my mother likes the viewfinder and I like the LCD. If the battery does run low, you can pop in normal alkaline. I did buy some rechargeable batteries to use in it. After taking a photo, it would not focus or operate, or so it seemed.

A duck flying by very quickly skimming the water over Lake Washington. If you receive an error message to turn off and then on remove the lens cap.

"It's solid."

I bought this camera right before I went on vacation to Hawaii. It took me a while to figure it out. I have yet to use the tripods but I'm excited to give them a try eventually. The initial charge using the Canon PS-1718C001-D to charge the battery took about 2 hours. In fact, the very first photo I took was indoors of my wife.
