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.

EXILIM EX-F1 Final Thoughts

"Not a fan of that."

What a really unique camera. Been looking for a easy to use, simple EXILIM 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.

Canon SX210IS Gold Final Thoughts

"Quality camera."

10,000 photos with it and it worked well for its limited capabilities. Its great for quick pictures everywhere with clear pictures. However, while it was still working, it took great pictures and was very easy to use. I would like a firmware update to fix that. The only problem I had was with the LCD screen.

Ultimate Deals First Impressions

"Um wow, totally wrong."

I have yet to use the tripods but I'm excited to give them a try eventually. Ergonomics count, especially when you get used to Ultimate Deals's excellent system--wow! Mid-afternoon typically required swapping in a charged battery. I haven't tried the macro shots yet, but will update this review when I get too. Overall good camera and value but needs improvements in the hardware.

"My girlfriend loves it."

Fast shipping and everything packaged nicely. I love the LED light and extra batteries for the camera and light. One thing that worries me is the little flap that covers the USB connector. Maybe it is for a small POS. I have yet to use the tripods but I'm excited to give them a try eventually.

"So far I like it a lot."

The burst rate is pretty good, and the image stabilization is superb. One thing that worries me is the little flap that covers the USB connector. Its really the camera to take on day trips.

The recommended solution is to send in the camera for cleaning. 5 seconds to wait for auto focus is not going to kill me. The Canon ELPH 190 Blue is small and fast. I just love how easy it is to get good looking shots. It is easy to use and takes clear pictures.

"Love my new Olympus 262829!"

If the battery does run low, you can pop in normal alkaline. Every thing was fine except I would have liked a better memory card. Meh, life goes on, immediately ordered more batteries off Amazon. Not to mention it worked great as a EXILIM Point & Shoot Digital Camera too. I feel that it takes better pictures than the DSC-HX50.

Canon 1718C001 First Impressions

"Love this little Canon 1718C001!"

A great camera for the money and my needs! This is the must have EXILIM Point & Shoot Digital Camera for me. I have already taken it and my P900 to three photo shoots. After taking a photo, it would not focus or operate, or so it seemed. One thing that worries me is the little flap that covers the USB connector.

  • Canon Powershot G9 X Mark II Digital Camera (Silver) with 32GB Card and Accessory Bundle
  • BUNDLE INCLUDES: Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II Compact Digital Camera, SanDisk Ultra 32GB SD Card, and Medium Point and Shoot Camera Accessory Bundle
  • 1-INCH CMOS SENSOR: At 1-inch, the image sensor allows you to capture a greater range of light, so bright areas of the image can be more detailed and less likely to be washed or blown out. With low-light scenes, an ISO range of 125-12800 lets you use fast shutter speeds to help keep photos sharp and virtually unaffected by camera shake
  • DIGIC 7 IMAGE PROCESSOR: Enhanced tracking and detection capabilities help lock onto your subject throughout the action, from improved face tracking to help keep your subject in focus. The Image Stabilization helps minimize blur caused by camera shakes and body movement. This results in clear, precise pictures even at slow shutter speeds. It provides noise reduction even at high ISO settings to help capture high-quality images in virtually any lighting situation
  • 28-84mm f/2.0-4.9 LENS: This camera has a 3x optical zoom lens which helps you to capture wide shots, or enable you to zoom in and get a detail revealing close-up. The fast aperture goes as low as f/2.0, meaning it's possible to see the subject and take clear photos in low light without flash. It also helps you to create beautiful background blur that makes the main subject of your images pop out like 3D

"That is a bargain."

Auto works well for me once outdoors or in well lit rooms. Love the small compact size which will be perfect for traveling. Likewise, don't rule out film. Color and white balance is generally good. Some reviewers have problems with clarity, but I certainly do not.
