"Good package of extras."

Excellent quality photos too. This camera does just what I have wanted, including zoom in video recorder mode. Plus I have various DSLRs and a beautiful Sony. Me and my husband have planned a trip to Bahamas. I like that while I am learning I can rely on the IA mode to take great shots for me.

Nikon E12NKCPB500R First Impressions

"Impressive!"

I will update this report once I have used it more. After taking a photo, it would not focus or operate, or so it seemed. This is great because my mother likes the viewfinder and I like the LCD. Overall, I'm really impressed with this little Nikon E12NKCPB500R. That is the reason I bought this Nikon E12NKCPB500R.

"This is my 2nd Nikon E12NKCPB500R."

The battery life is outstanding, lasted her whole two week trip with moderate use. This camera far exceeded my expectations. Overall good camera and value but needs improvements in the hardware. I feel that it takes better pictures than the DSC-HX50. In fact, the very first photo I took was indoors of my wife.

Sony DSCHX80/B First Impressions

"He loves it!"

One thing that worries me is the little flap that covers the USB connector. Full manual, Shutter Priority and Aperture Priority. I did buy some rechargeable batteries to use in it. Every thing was fine except I would have liked a better memory card. With a prime lens, zoom is one less thing you worry about.

Sony DSCHX80/B Final Thoughts

"It was worth importing."

I would like a firmware update to fix that. This is the perfect compromise camera for me. I get great photos, and it does not take long to import them to my laptop. The package is so small and light I barely notice it has a lens. I started with a NEX-6 and moved up to an Sony DSCHX80/B.

"It was worth importing."

In fact, the very first photo I took was indoors of my wife. Overall good camera and value but needs improvements in the hardware. Reduced kit by one star since enclosed camera bag is too small for camera. Some people even claim that the Sony ASONDSCH300BK2 rivals medium format quality. Better photos than her XR phone.

Sony ASONDSCH300BK2 Final Thoughts

"He loves it!"

10,000 photos with it and it worked well for its limited capabilities. It's very easy to clean up noise in postprocessing by using noise ninja or neat image. This camera was such a great gift for my daughter’s big sister gift. The package is so small and light I barely notice it has a lens. This is great because my mother likes the viewfinder and I like the LCD.

Its really the camera to take on day trips. While the 24-70 seems good, I can’t wait for a new Sony . The zoom and autofocus makes it easy. One thing that worries me is the little flap that covers the USB connector. Great deal on this camera package that includes lots of extras.
