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.

"So many features on here."

I like that while I am learning I can rely on the IA mode to take great shots for me. This is the perfect compromise camera for me. My old SX700 that was serviceable for years finally gave up and failed. This camera also has the best in camera JPEG processing I've ever seen. I bought this camera right before I went on vacation to Hawaii.

"Great low light shot."

I started with a NEX-6 and moved up to an Canon 1074C001. Overall, I'm really impressed with this little Canon 1074C001. Auto-ISO is on the conservative side, which I would like to have more control over. This is great because my mother likes the viewfinder and I like the LCD. Personally, I preferred it to have a wider lens, say 28mm equivalent.
