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.

Better photos than her XR phone. After over 10,000 pictures, my Canon 1066C001 operates perfectly in every aspect. Meh, life goes on, immediately ordered more batteries off Amazon. In some reviews this Canon 1066C001 is said to be heavy. I will update this report once I have used it more.

Canon, however, has always had colors that are exactly as our eyes see it! Light, portable and equipped with a good sensor. Easy to use, great for simple pictures. It wont replace a DSLR but it comers pretty close. Not to mention it worked great as a Remote Control Point & Shoot Digital Camera too.

"It takes great pictures."

Let me say from the start, I really like Canon. Auto-ISO is on the conservative side, which I would like to have more control over. The zoom and autofocus makes it easy. The lens adapter works seamlessly with no performance penalty. After taking a photo, it would not focus or operate, or so it seemed.

"The zoom is terrific."

It's got pretty much everything I could want in a Remote Control Point & Shoot Digital Camera. I wanted something to capture my kids activities. 10,000 photos with it and it worked well for its limited capabilities. Its really the camera to take on day trips. That is the reason I bought this Canon SX530BUNDLE.
