Overall great camera for special occasions.


Bought camera to use for birthdays, and other occasions. Not really professional quality pictures but good enough for home and uploading to computer and social media. Battery only last for one night of pictures or recording and charging takes a while....

Easy to use

Short battery life

Great for taking action shots.


I have never used a Nikon, but this one is awesome for action shots. The clarity and zoom are great. The downside was the color of the camera which is red and having to charge the camera. It's lightweight and I do like the different effects you can use...

Different effects for pictures and the zoom capability

Having to charge the camera
