Me new camera
About Me Ex-professional Dabbler
A fairly high-end pocket compact with plenty of megapixels giving lots of potential for cropping eminently useful pictures from quite small parts of the original image, this camera is heavier than expected for one of its size and is fitted with a GPS and with WiFi to transfer images to your laptop, smartphone or tablet. The GPS can be left on, in which case it permanently tracks your position and consumes a little battery power. As early impressions are that a fully charged battery doesn't last quite as long as you might expect – although this could be due to 'getting to know it' use – the GPS has been left turned off. Besides, I usually know where I am and don't see the need for recording that much detailed information about my pictures.The 4.5-90mm f3.5-6.8 20x zoom produces an image that dances across the screen when at full stretch and it takes some care and a check of the shutter speed to get sharp images out of it. It's pretty good at all other ranges, including macro. There is no viewfinder and inevitably there are some lighting conditions that allow you to see nothing but your own reflection on the sizeable screen.All controls except the power on/off, shutter button and zoom lever are on the back of the camera and the mode dial can easily be inadvertently rotated when removing it from a case, leaving you wondering where most of your favourite displayed info has gone until you spot, say, manual rather than Tv mode on the screen.When selecting shutter speed in Tv mode or aperture in Av - to name but two functions available by rotating the narrow, notched ring around the wide function selection ring and function set button at their centre, it is all too easy depress the narrow ring slightly at the 3 O'clock position and turn the flash on. The unexpected popping up of the flash under left hand fingers can cause you to let go of the camera for fear of damaging the flash. Since the right hand is twiddling the multi-purpose narrow ring at the time, near-miss camera drops have occurred. This is all the more annoying as the wider function selection ring also switches on the flash but is not so easily accidentally depressed. It is therefore essential to keep the strap around your wrist at all times.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
