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.

Canon E1CNPSG7XMIIISL Final Thoughts

"Husband loves this Canon E1CNPSG7XMIIISL."

Just ordered my soft box lights. I needed a Streaming Point & Shoot Digital Camera with a sensor larger than what is on my smartphone. 5 seconds to wait for auto focus is not going to kill me. It is easy to use and takes clear pictures. Maybe it is for a small POS.

"That is a bargain."

Every thing was fine except I would have liked a better memory card. Full manual, Shutter Priority and Aperture Priority. Simple to figure out how to use, even for beginning photographers. This is great because my mother likes the viewfinder and I like the LCD. Maybe it is for a small POS.

Canon 3637C001 Final Thoughts

"It's range is awesome."

Looking forward to seeing how the weight savings impact my hikes and travel. The lens adapter works seamlessly with no performance penalty. Love the small compact size which will be perfect for traveling. However, while it was still working, it took great pictures and was very easy to use. The recommended solution is to send in the camera for cleaning.

"An AMAZING DEAL!"

It took me a while to figure it out. 10,000 photos with it and it worked well for its limited capabilities. One thing that worries me is the little flap that covers the USB connector. I was pretty skeptical buying another point and shoot. What a really unique camera.

PHOTO4LESS Canon G7 X Mark III (Black) Final Thoughts

"So, not real."

Or, you can select all-manual, if you want to set everything yourself. Plus I have various DSLRs and a beautiful PHOTO4LESS. So glad I chose the PHOTO4LESS Canon G7 X Mark III (Black). The lens adapter works seamlessly with no performance penalty. Where this PHOTO4LESS Canon G7 X Mark III (Black) really shines though is the video recording oddly enough.

"Camera works just fine."

I will update this report once I have used it more. If you receive an error message to turn off and then on remove the lens cap.

"It's range is awesome."

I bought this Streaming Point & Shoot Digital Camera for a trip I'm taking abroad in February. They make it look like I know what I'm doing. Only downside is recovery after each shot, however rest of features make up for it. The zoom and autofocus makes it easy. But overall It is worth to buy and I totally recommend you to buy this bundle.

"Well, this Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS80 is IT."

If you're a casual photographer, you can't beat this price, get it now. Its small and very comfortable to hold and use, which is great cuz I have small hands. Auto works well for me once outdoors or in well lit rooms. It wont replace a DSLR but it comers pretty close. Mid-afternoon typically required swapping in a charged battery.

"I take it when I travel."

This camera does just what I have wanted, including zoom in video recorder mode. So I went to a camera store and tried out both of them. Overall good camera and value but needs improvements in the hardware. Its small and very comfortable to hold and use, which is great cuz I have small hands. Make sure you format first or it may fry on you.

"Keep it simple!"

Personally, I preferred it to have a wider lens, say 28mm equivalent. I get great photos, and it does not take long to import them to my laptop. Paired with my smartphone no problem. However, while it was still working, it took great pictures and was very easy to use. In fact, the very first photo I took was indoors of my wife.

  • Panasonic LUMIX LX10 20.1MP 4K Digital Camera (Black) with Corel Software Kit, 32GB SD Card, Two Wasabi Power Batteries, Flash, 12-Inch Tripod, Cable and Accessory Bundle (13 Items)

  • STUNNING PICTURE QUALITY: The 1-inch 20.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS sensor records 4K and high-quality photos in super-sharp detail. Combined with the Venus Engine, ISO12800 / Extended ISO25600 recording with stunning picture quality is possible. The camera's 4K Photo mode taps into 4K video recorded at a blistering 30 frames per second, to let you select the single best image after shooting, for unmissable moments
  • HEART OF 4K: Inside the LUMIX LX10 beats the heart of a photographic enthusiast. And with a 1-in, 20 MP 4K sensor, Leica lens and more, you’ll feel it in every image. 4K delivers a far more intense viewing experience. Its native resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels is four times larger than Full HD for a much higher level of detail
  • POWERFUL LENS: Photo creativity is based on light, and it all begins with the lens. With the LUMIX LX10 a crystal-clear f/1.4-2.8 24-72mm Leica DC Vario-Summilux lens provides a decisive edge even in low light, and adds a beautiful bokeh effect

Some people even claim that the Panasonic DMC-LX10K rivals medium format quality. Panasonic, however, has always had colors that are exactly as our eyes see it!
