Canon 6195B001 Final Thoughts

"So I ordered it anyway."

What a really unique camera. This camera also has the best in camera JPEG processing I've ever seen. My old SX700 that was serviceable for years finally gave up and failed. Meh, life goes on, immediately ordered more batteries off Amazon. I just love how easy it is to get good looking shots.

"Decent battery life."

Lastly, the complaints about battery life are totally valid. I like everything about the camera. Light, portable and equipped with a good sensor. I was pretty skeptical buying another point and shoot. Light, portable and equipped with a good sensor.

Color and white balance is generally good. During my search, I discovered that the Canon 5043B001 was about to be released. Excellent two characteristics in a GPS Point & Shoot Digital Camera. It's very easy to clean up noise in postprocessing by using noise ninja or neat image. I've researched this Canon 5043B001 A LOT and I only heard great things.

"An AMAZING DEAL!"

Plus I have various DSLRs and a beautiful Canon. Make sure you format first or it may fry on you. Auto works well for me once outdoors or in well lit rooms. They make it look like I know what I'm doing. However, while it was still working, it took great pictures and was very easy to use.

"I can carry it anywhere!"

I like everything about the camera. So glad I chose the Canon 5045B001. The only problem I had was with the LCD screen. Auto-ISO is on the conservative side, which I would like to have more control over. It’s taken its place as my go to camera, which is what I intended it for.

"Pretty cool."

I like everything about the camera. I have yet to use the tripods but I'm excited to give them a try eventually. Excellent two characteristics in a GPS Point & Shoot Digital Camera. I don't really see a good excuse for that, wildlife photos may prove nearly impossible. They make it look like I know what I'm doing.

"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.

"It packs a punch."

I'm impressed with how Nikon incorporated it seamlessly. Only downside is recovery after each shot, however rest of features make up for it. Or, you can select all-manual, if you want to set everything yourself. Maybe it is for a small POS. In some reviews this Nikon Nikon COOLPIX P900 K1 is said to be heavy.
