"This mode is important."

The battery life is outstanding, lasted her whole two week trip with moderate use. I would like a firmware update to fix that. The Sony DSCWX220B is small and fast. Likewise, don't rule out film. I have big hands, but it still fits well into my palm--very comfortable to hold.

"Just kidding."

The only problem I had was with the LCD screen. Reduced kit by one star since enclosed camera bag is too small for camera. I would like a firmware update to fix that. Color and white balance is generally good. I can't wait to try it out at the zoo.

"So I ordered it anyway."

The stability at long zoom was fantastic. This camera has so many features for its size. I’m now wading through the manual before heading out to shoot photos.

"Very nice design."

Excellent two characteristics in a Panoramic Point & Shoot Digital Camera. Takes great low light & fireworks pictures. Plus I have various DSLRs and a beautiful Teds. Ergonomics count, especially when you get used to Teds's excellent system--wow! I did buy some rechargeable batteries to use in it.

"A good buy in my book."

Canon 1070C001 First Impressions

"It's a REAL camera."

I would like a firmware update to fix that. It's very easy to clean up noise in postprocessing by using noise ninja or neat image. Every thing was fine except I would have liked a better memory card. Looking forward to seeing how the weight savings impact my hikes and travel. Meh, life goes on, immediately ordered more batteries off Amazon.

"It's range is awesome."

AOM DSCRX100M6/B Final Thoughts

"She swears by it."

Personally, I preferred it to have a wider lens, say 28mm equivalent. Reduced kit by one star since enclosed camera bag is too small for camera. AOM, however, has always had colors that are exactly as our eyes see it! It's got pretty much everything I could want in a Panoramic Point & Shoot Digital Camera. If you want to take bird pictures.

"Great low light shot."

Manual focus would've been nice. If you receive an error message to turn off and then on remove the lens cap. If the battery does run low, you can pop in normal alkaline. It’s taken its place as my go to camera, which is what I intended it for. The only problem I had was with the LCD screen.

Fujifilm 600019825 First Impressions

"Still five stars!"

The lens adapter works seamlessly with no performance penalty. Excellent two characteristics in a Panoramic Point & Shoot Digital Camera. Love that a strap, case and lens cover came with it, among other things. The initial charge using the Fujifilm 600019825 to charge the battery took about 2 hours. My old SX700 that was serviceable for years finally gave up and failed.

"So I purchased the Fujifilm 600019825."

I have already taken it and my P900 to three photo shoots. If the battery does run low, you can pop in normal alkaline. They make it look like I know what I'm doing. Not to mention it worked great as a Panoramic Point & Shoot Digital Camera too. Some reviewers have problems with clarity, but I certainly do not.

"I do have one problem."

Maybe it is for a small POS. Where this Sony really shines though is the video recording oddly enough. I get great photos, and it does not take long to import them to my laptop. I am so impressed with this Sony ! No other Panoramic Point & Shoot Digital Camera of this size is fast and have the quality of this Sony .
