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.

Teds 1959C006AA Final Thoughts

"Takes awesome pictures."

I get great photos, and it does not take long to import them to my laptop. One thing that worries me is the little flap that covers the USB connector. Just ordered my soft box lights. I needed a Polaroid Point & Shoot Digital Camera with a sensor larger than what is on my smartphone. She squeals in excitement every time I open Snapchat and let her take pictures with me.

Sony DSCRX100B First Impressions

"Very nice design."

It took me a while to figure it out. Been looking for a easy to use, simple Polaroid Point & Shoot Digital Camera. A duck flying by very quickly skimming the water over Lake Washington. What a really unique camera. After taking a photo, it would not focus or operate, or so it seemed.

Sony DSCRX100B Final Thoughts

"It packs a punch."

Where this Sony DSCRX100B really shines though is the video recording oddly enough. I have already taken it and my P900 to three photo shoots. While the 24-70 seems good, I can’t wait for a new Sony DSCRX100B. Looking forward to seeing how the weight savings impact my hikes and travel. I have yet to use the tripods but I'm excited to give them a try eventually.

"All on Auto."

I was honestly surprised that I could find anything like this on Amazon. That is the reason I bought this Fujifilm FX-X100T B. For me the upgrade was worth it as it had things I find extremely useful. After taking a photo, it would not focus or operate, or so it seemed. This camera far exceeded my expectations.

I like that while I am learning I can rely on the IA mode to take great shots for me. I’m now wading through the manual before heading out to shoot photos.

"Not necessary with this."

This camera has so many features for its size. It’s taken its place as my go to camera, which is what I intended it for. I feel that it takes better pictures than the DSC-HX50. I love the LED light and extra batteries for the camera and light. I have already taken it and my P900 to three photo shoots.

Great deal on this camera package that includes lots of extras. It wont replace a DSLR but it comers pretty close. The initial charge using the Deal-Expo CNSX540DBK to charge the battery took about 2 hours. Likewise, don't rule out film. What a really unique camera.

Canon, however, has always had colors that are exactly as our eyes see it! Fast shipping and everything packaged nicely. In some reviews this Canon 1791C001 is said to be heavy. I feel that it takes better pictures than the DSC-HX50. I was pretty skeptical buying another point and shoot.

"I take it when I travel."

Takes great low light & fireworks pictures. Auto-ISO is on the conservative side, which I would like to have more control over. I recommend this camera to those looking for an all in one camera. This camera also has the best in camera JPEG processing I've ever seen. I'm impressed with how Canon incorporated it seamlessly.

5 seconds to wait for auto focus is not going to kill me. She squeals in excitement every time I open Snapchat and let her take pictures with me.

Canon, however, has always had colors that are exactly as our eyes see it! 10,000 photos with it and it worked well for its limited capabilities.
