beware of lack of zoom

By Donna

from California

Pros

  • Easy to use
  • Good quality pictures
  • Most Buttons Make Sense

Cons

  • Does not focus well
  • Does Not Refocus In Video
  • No Optical Zoom With Vide

Best Uses

  • Pictures of people
  • Still Pictures

This works fine for taking pictures of people but it tries to focus on whatever it thinks is a face even though that is not what I want to take a picture of. It is possible to force it to focus on the center of the frame but no way to default to that so it has to be reset every time the camera sleeps or is turned off.

Only the digital zoom is avaliable during video filming so if you zoom during video the picture gets grainy and pixalated. To use optical zoom you must stop the video, zoom, then start the video again and hope it focuses on your subject. Not really good for action pictures.
