"So far, so good."

The zoom is incredible as well. Looking forward to seeing how the weight savings impact my hikes and travel. I can't wait to try it out at the zoo. This is great because my mother likes the viewfinder and I like the LCD. That is the reason I bought this Panasonic DC-FZ80K.

Nikon E23NKZ7BODY First Impressions

"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!

Nikon E23NKZ7BODY Final Thoughts

"The Nikon E23NKZ7BODY does 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.

"Still five stars!"

After taking a photo, it would not focus or operate, or so it seemed. With a prime lens, zoom is one less thing you worry about. So glad I chose the AOM P900KIT. I have already taken it and my P900 to three photo shoots. This is the perfect compromise camera for me.

"Awesome pics!"

Meh, life goes on, immediately ordered more batteries off Amazon. Not to mention it worked great as a 8k Point & Shoot Digital Camera too. 5 seconds to wait for auto focus is not going to kill me. Better photos than her XR phone. I needed a 8k Point & Shoot Digital Camera with a sensor larger than what is on my smartphone.

Not to mention it worked great as a 8k Point & Shoot Digital Camera too. Only downside is recovery after each shot, however rest of features make up for it. It is easy to use and takes clear pictures. Light, portable and equipped with a good sensor. So I went to a camera store and tried out both of them.

Panasonic DMC-FX55P-K Final Thoughts

"All on Auto."

After over 10,000 pictures, my Panasonic DMC-FX55P-K operates perfectly in every aspect. It size is great for pockets and small purses. One thing that worries me is the little flap that covers the USB connector. This camera was such a great gift for my daughter’s big sister gift. Simple to figure out how to use, even for beginning photographers.

Great deal on this camera package that includes lots of extras. Mid-afternoon typically required swapping in a charged battery. It's very easy to clean up noise in postprocessing by using noise ninja or neat image. Meh, life goes on, immediately ordered more batteries off Amazon.
