Polaroid I832W First Impressions

"Impressive!"

Likewise, don't rule out film. The stability at long zoom was fantastic. I've researched this Polaroid I832W A LOT and I only heard great things. I was pretty skeptical buying another point and shoot. My old SX700 that was serviceable for years finally gave up and failed.

Nikon P900 First Impressions

"It's range is awesome."

If you want to take bird pictures. One thing that worries me is the little flap that covers the USB connector. I needed a Polaroid Point & Shoot Digital Camera with a sensor larger than what is on my smartphone. I haven't tried the macro shots yet, but will update this review when I get too. My old SX700 that was serviceable for years finally gave up and failed.

Fujifilm FX-3D W3 First Impressions

"Mostly point and shoot."

If the battery does run low, you can pop in normal alkaline. Ergonomics count, especially when you get used to Fujifilm's excellent system--wow! She squeals in excitement every time I open Snapchat and let her take pictures with me. Every thing was fine except I would have liked a better memory card. Or, you can select all-manual, if you want to set everything yourself.

"So, not real."

It's got pretty much everything I could want in a Polaroid Point & Shoot Digital Camera. Ergonomics count, especially when you get used to Fujifilm's excellent system--wow! The zoom is incredible as well. Auto works well for me once outdoors or in well lit rooms. Looking forward to seeing how the weight savings impact my hikes and travel.

Canon Final Thoughts

"That is a bargain."

If the battery does run low, you can pop in normal alkaline. Canon, however, has always had colors that are exactly as our eyes see it! Love that a strap, case and lens cover came with it, among other things. But overall I really liked this bundle and the quality is awesome! Mid-afternoon typically required swapping in a charged battery.

Sony Final Thoughts

"Over all very satisfied."

Only downside is recovery after each shot, however rest of features make up for it. I don't really see a good excuse for that, wildlife photos may prove nearly impossible. The zoom truly is extraordinary! Reduced kit by one star since enclosed camera bag is too small for camera. Been looking for a easy to use, simple Polaroid Point & Shoot Digital Camera.
