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.

"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.

"All on Auto."

So I went to a camera store and tried out both of them. Ergonomics count, especially when you get used to Canon's excellent system--wow! Not to mention it worked great as a Remote Control Point & Shoot Digital Camera too. I don't really see a good excuse for that, wildlife photos may prove nearly impossible. If you want to take bird pictures.

"Very worth the buy."

What a really unique camera. It’s taken its place as my go to camera, which is what I intended it for. Takes great low light & fireworks pictures. My old SX700 that was serviceable for years finally gave up and failed. I just love how easy it is to get good looking shots.

"Good pictures!"

Personally, I preferred it to have a wider lens, say 28mm equivalent. Love the small compact size which will be perfect for traveling. 5 seconds to wait for auto focus is not going to kill me. The burst rate is pretty good, and the image stabilization is superb. I love the LED light and extra batteries for the camera and light.

In fact, the very first photo I took was indoors of my wife. If you're a casual photographer, you can't beat this price, get it now. If you receive an error message to turn off and then on remove the lens cap. The package is so small and light I barely notice it has a lens. I get great photos, and it does not take long to import them to my laptop.

I don't really see a good excuse for that, wildlife photos may prove nearly impossible. Maybe it is for a small POS. Some people even claim that the Casio EX-ZR200RD rivals medium format quality. I like that while I am learning I can rely on the IA mode to take great shots for me. I've researched this Casio EX-ZR200RD A LOT and I only heard great things.
