Nikon 26508 First Impressions

"Decent battery life."

Better photos than her XR phone. The recommended solution is to send in the camera for cleaning. The initial charge using the Nikon 26508 to charge the battery took about 2 hours. Fast shipping and everything packaged nicely. I will update this report once I have used it more.

Nikon 26508 Final Thoughts

"It looked good."

5 seconds to wait for auto focus is not going to kill me. I will update this report once I have used it more. I've researched this Nikon 26508 A LOT and I only heard great things. Where this Nikon 26508 really shines though is the video recording oddly enough. Full manual, Shutter Priority and Aperture Priority.

"The grip is a bit larger."

You'll be glad you bought this one. I have big hands, but it still fits well into my palm--very comfortable to hold. Paired with my smartphone no problem. Plus I have various DSLRs and a beautiful Canon. Takes great low light & fireworks pictures.

"All in my Pelican case."

Or, you can select all-manual, if you want to set everything yourself. You'll be glad you bought this one. This camera also has the best in camera JPEG processing I've ever seen. Manual focus would've been nice. So I went to a camera store and tried out both of them.

Canon E1CNPSG7XMIIISL First Impressions

"A good buy in my book."

Simple to figure out how to use, even for beginning photographers. Some people even claim that the Canon E1CNPSG7XMIIISL rivals medium format quality. I bought this camera right before I went on vacation to Hawaii. Manual focus would've been nice. I did buy some rechargeable batteries to use in it.

I needed a Remote Control Point & Shoot Digital Camera with a sensor larger than what is on my smartphone. A great camera for the money and my needs! One thing that worries me is the little flap that covers the USB connector. I haven't tried the macro shots yet, but will update this review when I get too. You'll be glad you bought this one.

"Very impressed overall!"

Its great for quick pictures everywhere with clear pictures. The Panasonic DMC-LX7-K is small and fast. Only downside is recovery after each shot, however rest of features make up for it. This camera was such a great gift for my daughter’s big sister gift. But overall It is worth to buy and I totally recommend you to buy this bundle.

I am so impressed with this Leica 18194! If you're a casual photographer, you can't beat this price, get it now. While the 24-70 seems good, I can’t wait for a new Leica 18194.
