Not for shooting sports or action videos

 

I bought this camera to shoot my children playing in soccer games, but it doesn't have the zoom capability. I then wanted to use it to create stop-action videos indoors, but the videos were very grainy or blurry, even with good lighting. It makes a...

light-weight, easy to use, takes nice photos

Grainy or blurry videos indoors, can't zoom in well on individual players (i.e. soccer), recorded sound is often distorted

for basic point & click video it's ok

 

A good basic video camera but you'll soon long for better quality sound & zoom. This camera could use an external mic option. Zooming renders objects very blurry. Easy to take snapshots too. Uses standard & high speed SD card - a plus. I'm always...

easy to turn on & start shooting

very bad zoom & microphone; navigation clumsy to hard

Horrible - DO NOT BUY

 

I got this for a christmas present and was pleased with it AT FIRST. The camera seemed like a good buy for the money and was fairly easy to use. I used it maybe 5 times and always put it back in the box after each use, it was never abused in any way....

Looks good, but it was'nt bought as art now was it

Malfunctions for no reason at all - JUNK

Bad

 

This is not a good camera for taking pictures or video. The price was alright but the picture quality was unacceptable. Almost all the pictures i took were discolored and had bad focus. This camera has a dual flash feature that is useless. There is...

Radio and MP3 player

Everything else, the picture quality is horrible

Consumer review by:

It's decent

 

I was really impressed by the clarity of the pictures.

Clear pictures for both day/night -Cool features

Takes too long to take a picture when flash is on -video recording is decent, but not as good as the pictures
