"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 .

"Screen works well."

If the battery does run low, you can pop in normal alkaline. After over 10,000 pictures, my Sigma C83900 operates perfectly in every aspect. Takes great low light & fireworks pictures.

The different features are amazing and the pics came out really great. In fact, the very first photo I took was indoors of my wife.

User Ratings: 80 3

Fujifilm First Impressions

"Husband loves this Fujifilm ."

This camera does just what I have wanted, including zoom in video recorder mode. Auto-ISO is on the conservative side, which I would like to have more control over. One thing that worries me is the little flap that covers the USB connector. Auto works well for me once outdoors or in well lit rooms. If you receive an error message to turn off and then on remove the lens cap.

Overall, I'm really impressed with this little Panasonic DMC-LX1S. It will take some getting used to. However, while it was still working, it took great pictures and was very easy to use. I'm still playing around with it. I can't wait to try it out at the zoo.

"Really great camera."

I feel that it takes better pictures than the DSC-HX50. A great camera for the money and my needs! After taking a photo, it would not focus or operate, or so it seemed. This camera far exceeded my expectations. Personally, I preferred it to have a wider lens, say 28mm equivalent.
