Stealth Cam ASTCSTCDS4K1C Final Thoughts

"Not necessary with this."

Great deal on this camera package that includes lots of extras. Mid-afternoon typically required swapping in a charged battery. It's very easy to clean up noise in postprocessing by using noise ninja or neat image. Meh, life goes on, immediately ordered more batteries off Amazon. Not to mention it worked great as a Infrared Point & Shoot Digital Camera too.

Stealth Cam STC-DS4K Final Thoughts

"I JUST LOVE THIS CAMERA."

I bought this camera right before I went on vacation to Hawaii. Maybe it is for a small POS. But overall It is worth to buy and I totally recommend you to buy this bundle. I’m now wading through the manual before heading out to shoot photos. 10,000 photos with it and it worked well for its limited capabilities.

Love that a strap, case and lens cover came with it, among other things. Overall, I'm really impressed with this little Deal-Expo CNSX620DBB16GB.

Deal-Expo CNSX620DBB16GB Final Thoughts

"Extremely small."

I don't really see a good excuse for that, wildlife photos may prove nearly impossible. Auto-ISO is on the conservative side, which I would like to have more control over. Its great for quick pictures everywhere with clear pictures. She squeals in excitement every time I open Snapchat and let her take pictures with me. Some people even claim that the Deal-Expo CNSX620DBB16GB rivals medium format quality.

I have already taken it and my P900 to three photo shoots. I have big hands, but it still fits well into my palm--very comfortable to hold. The zoom is incredible as well.

"Just kidding."

I love the LED light and extra batteries for the camera and light. 10,000 photos with it and it worked well for its limited capabilities. Where this Olympus really shines though is the video recording oddly enough. I would like a firmware update to fix that. Light, portable and equipped with a good sensor.
