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.

It’s taken its place as my go to camera, which is what I intended it for. Likewise, don't rule out film. I bought this camera right before I went on vacation to Hawaii. I have already taken it and my P900 to three photo shoots. I have yet to use the tripods but I'm excited to give them a try eventually.

It's very easy to clean up noise in postprocessing by using noise ninja or neat image. The zoom and autofocus makes it easy. With a prime lens, zoom is one less thing you worry about. It is easy to use and takes clear pictures. I would like a firmware update to fix that.

"Love this little Adorama DMC-LX10!"

I feel that it takes better pictures than the DSC-HX50. I bought this Infrared Point & Shoot Digital Camera for a trip I'm taking abroad in February. Personally, I preferred it to have a wider lens, say 28mm equivalent. 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.
