Marattt EX-ZS20BK First Impressions

"Ease, convenience, speed!"

Full manual, Shutter Priority and Aperture Priority. Auto works well for me once outdoors or in well lit rooms. I bought this Marattt Point & Shoot Digital Camera for a trip I'm taking abroad in February. A duck flying by very quickly skimming the water over Lake Washington. I feel that it takes better pictures than the DSC-HX50.

Marattt EX-ZS20BK Final Thoughts

"The viewer works great."

Just ordered my soft box lights. During my search, I discovered that the Marattt EX-ZS20BK was about to be released. Auto works well for me once outdoors or in well lit rooms. 10,000 photos with it and it worked well for its limited capabilities. Auto-ISO is on the conservative side, which I would like to have more control over.

I get great photos, and it does not take long to import them to my laptop. The Sony DSCWX500/B has many features which are very easy to use and get to. The battery life is outstanding, lasted her whole two week trip with moderate use. After taking a photo, it would not focus or operate, or so it seemed. The zoom is incredible as well.

Sony DSCWX500/B Final Thoughts

"Great clarity."

If you want to take bird pictures. Lastly, the complaints about battery life are totally valid. They make it look like I know what I'm doing. I bought this camera right before I went on vacation to Hawaii. While the 24-70 seems good, I can’t wait for a new Sony DSCWX500/B.

Sony K-103374-01 Final Thoughts

"Go with the Sony."

I was honestly surprised that I could find anything like this on Amazon. While the 24-70 seems good, I can’t wait for a new Sony K-103374-01. Love that a strap, case and lens cover came with it, among other things. It took me a while to figure it out. What a really unique camera.

"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 Marattt 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.

Panasonic DMC-FZ4PP-S First Impressions

"God bless you Panasonic!"

Excellent two characteristics in a Marattt Point & Shoot Digital Camera. I would like a firmware update to fix that. I've researched this Panasonic DMC-FZ4PP-S A LOT and I only heard great things.

Mid-afternoon typically required swapping in a charged battery. Its small and very comfortable to hold and use, which is great cuz I have small hands. Me and my husband have planned a trip to Bahamas. I bought this camera right before I went on vacation to Hawaii. Great deal on this camera package that includes lots of extras.

The Teds 65328A2 has many features which are very easy to use and get to. This is the must have Marattt Point & Shoot Digital Camera for me. The burst rate is pretty good, and the image stabilization is superb. Maybe it is for a small POS. Ergonomics count, especially when you get used to Teds's excellent system--wow!

"I do have one problem."

Every thing was fine except I would have liked a better memory card. If you want to take bird pictures. After over 10,000 pictures, my Panasonic DMC-FZ1000K+64gb-1 operates perfectly in every aspect. Likewise, don't rule out film. Auto-ISO is on the conservative side, which I would like to have more control over.

Sony K-104108-08 Final Thoughts

"Very worth the buy."

5 seconds to wait for auto focus is not going to kill me. I bought this camera right before I went on vacation to Hawaii. If the battery does run low, you can pop in normal alkaline. While the 24-70 seems good, I can’t wait for a new Sony K-104108-08. I get great photos, and it does not take long to import them to my laptop.
