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.

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.

"I LOVE THIS CAMERA."

They make it look like I know what I'm doing. I have already taken it and my P900 to three photo shoots. Better photos than her XR phone. For me the upgrade was worth it as it had things I find extremely useful. I started with a NEX-6 and moved up to an Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70.

"Zoom I am still iffy on."

I like that while I am learning I can rely on the IA mode to take great shots for me. With a prime lens, zoom is one less thing you worry about. Lastly, the complaints about battery life are totally valid. Excellent two characteristics in a Streaming Point & Shoot Digital Camera. Me and my husband have planned a trip to Bahamas.

A duck flying by very quickly skimming the water over Lake Washington. That is the reason I bought this 1stClassSavings B500. I like everything about the camera.
