Rated 5 out of 5 by from Functional little camera! Bought this as a gift for my mum and I am really happy that she loves it. The camera is very small and lightweight, perfect for it to be stashed in her purse and carry it around. The image is pretty good for a compact camera. The wifi function definitely a bonus!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FANTASTIC POINT & SHOOT Camera I have had this camera for a little over two weeks and it is FANTASTIC. I wanted a simple to use, point and shoot, with a good zoom and rechargeable battery. This camera ticks all the boxes and then some. The zoom is OUTSTANDING, and the battery lasts a good long time. Only downside is that on the farthest zoom the camera is somewhat shaky. However a good tripod will fix this issue I am sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zoom and Image stabilisation Why would you want this camera? 1. Zoom - this camera has a LOT of zoom. Images look ok even at 50x 2. Macro - this camera can focus on objects 10mm away! 3. Tripod mount - has a metal tripod mount for proper mounting 4. Image stabilisation - it's really good and will give you a much better chance of a clear picture especially using the zoom. 5. Dedicated low light and long shutter modes 6. HD video looks and sounds nice with stabilisation, wide angle and light weight good for vlogging 7. Wifi and NFC mean transferring photos easily to your smartphone computer or tablet for sharing quickly, you can even control the camera remotely from your phone for selfies etc. 8. 20mp (18mp at 3:2) offers a higher level of detail compared to most smartphones Why would you not want this camera? 1. no touch screen/doesn't flip for selfies 2. no mode dial, so it's a bit fiddly to change modes 3.battery must be charged separately (this could also be a good thing if you want to get an extra battery you can charge and use the camera at the same time) 4. Lens has a dark aperture which means more noise in photos and not great at capturing movement in low light (like a smartphone) The Zoom and image stabilisation put this way ahead of a smartphone with a similar size sensor and low light capabilities although this does have some dedicated low light modes which make up for that a little but you will be using the inbuilt flash for capturing people. You can use the telephoto lens to get blurry backgrounds and portraits without the wide angle lens distortion of a smartphone. No touch screen is not good but otherwise it looks and feels like a quality product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great camera Very bright photos, does take a little to focus but overall very happy.
Date published: 2018-02-09
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not too bad I used this camera overseas in Europe to take pictures and it did its job well. It's a great compact camera to carry around but sometimes you have to wait for it to focus before taking the picture and taking the battery out to charge it is a bit time-consuming.
