"Major win here."

While the 24-70 seems good, I can’t wait for a new Nikon . The lens adapter works seamlessly with no performance penalty. Auto works well for me once outdoors or in well lit rooms. I did buy some rechargeable batteries to use in it. Everything about it is solid and satisfying.

"The viewer works great."

Me and my husband have planned a trip to Bahamas. This is the perfect compromise camera for me. Lastly, the complaints about battery life are totally valid. I feel that it takes better pictures than the DSC-HX50. I did buy some rechargeable batteries to use in it.

"It's range is awesome."

Simple to figure out how to use, even for beginning photographers. I'm impressed with how Nikon incorporated it seamlessly. During my search, I discovered that the Nikon was about to be released. It's got pretty much everything I could want in a Childrens Point & Shoot Digital Camera. I did buy some rechargeable batteries to use in it.

Nikon Final Thoughts

"Very nice design."

However, while it was still working, it took great pictures and was very easy to use. The zoom truly is extraordinary! I did buy some rechargeable batteries to use in it. Only downside is recovery after each shot, however rest of features make up for it. Great deal on this camera package that includes lots of extras.

EXILIM EX-F1 First Impressions

"This mode is important."

Overall, I'm really impressed with this little EXILIM EX-F1. Some people even claim that the EXILIM EX-F1 rivals medium format quality. In some reviews this EXILIM EX-F1 is said to be heavy. Just ordered my soft box lights. I’m now wading through the manual before heading out to shoot photos.

"Not a fan of that."

What a really unique camera. Been looking for a easy to use, simple Childrens Point & Shoot Digital Camera. So I went to a camera store and tried out both of them. In some reviews this EXILIM EX-F1 is said to be heavy. The recommended solution is to send in the camera for cleaning.

Extreme Electronics oltg6redbund First Impressions

"Well, this Extreme Electronics oltg6redbund is IT."

5 seconds to wait for auto focus is not going to kill me. Where this Extreme Electronics oltg6redbund really shines though is the video recording oddly enough. Not to mention it worked great as a Childrens Point & Shoot Digital Camera too. After taking a photo, it would not focus or operate, or so it seemed. This camera was such a great gift for my daughter’s big sister gift.

Extreme Electronics oltg6redbund Final Thoughts

"Fantastic camera."

Likewise, don't rule out film. If you receive an error message to turn off and then on remove the lens cap. Personally, I preferred it to have a wider lens, say 28mm equivalent. I have big hands, but it still fits well into my palm--very comfortable to hold. After taking a photo, it would not focus or operate, or so it seemed.

"The zoom is terrific."

The zoom and autofocus makes it easy. The different features are amazing and the pics came out really great. One thing that worries me is the little flap that covers the USB connector. The burst rate is pretty good, and the image stabilization is superb. I've researched this Panasonic FX580 Black A LOT and I only heard great things.

10,000 photos with it and it worked well for its limited capabilities. After taking a photo, it would not focus or operate, or so it seemed. So glad I chose the Canon 0106C001. In fact, the very first photo I took was indoors of my wife. In fact, the very first photo I took was indoors of my wife.

The image I've shared was taken from over 15 feet away with just the optical zoom. I started with a NEX-6 and moved up to an Beach Camera E3PNDCFZ80K. It is easy to use and takes clear pictures. I needed a Childrens Point & Shoot Digital Camera with a sensor larger than what is on my smartphone. It will take some getting used to.

"Has a big LCD display."

I have big hands, but it still fits well into my palm--very comfortable to hold. The stability at long zoom was fantastic. It will take some getting used to. It's very easy to clean up noise in postprocessing by using noise ninja or neat image. It’s taken its place as my go to camera, which is what I intended it for.
