"I love the new Beach Camera E4SNDSCRX100M3B."

The image I've shared was taken from over 15 feet away with just the optical zoom. Love the small compact size which will be perfect for traveling. But overall It is worth to buy and I totally recommend you to buy this bundle. The zoom and autofocus makes it easy. Personally, I preferred it to have a wider lens, say 28mm equivalent.

Beach Camera E1SNDSCRX100M3B First Impressions

"I like the camera, but."

Light, portable and equipped with a good sensor. I was pretty skeptical buying another point and shoot. I feel that it takes better pictures than the DSC-HX50. Beach Camera, however, has always had colors that are exactly as our eyes see it! However, while it was still working, it took great pictures and was very easy to use.

Its really the camera to take on day trips. Reduced kit by one star since enclosed camera bag is too small for camera. If you want to take bird pictures. They make it look like I know what I'm doing. I was pretty skeptical buying another point and shoot.

Beach Camera E1PNDCFZ80K Final Thoughts

"Major win here."

Love that a strap, case and lens cover came with it, among other things. Overall good camera and value but needs improvements in the hardware. I was pretty skeptical buying another point and shoot. I needed a Beach Camera Point & Shoot Digital Camera with a sensor larger than what is on my smartphone. Auto-ISO is on the conservative side, which I would like to have more control over.
