Pros The camera is lightweight and easy to use.. It has a fair response time between pictures for a point and shoot camera.. Also it has a 26x zoom and runs on AA batteries which I like
Cons This camera takes bad pictures.. There is no manual focus and the auto focus is slow and random and not at all sharp.. Also even in good light all the photos were incredibly soft..
Summary I usually prefer Nikon cameras, however the L810 has a close enough approach when it comes to focus if sharp quality is important to you its not a camera I would recommend
Pros Amazing zoom capabilities
Not very heavy
Good video capabilities (as long as the focus works)
Good picture quality in sunlight
Operates on standard AA batteries
Cons Poor picture quality in lower light conditions
Lag time between picts bad
Autofocus slow/not working at all
Video limited to 30 minutes
Slow SD card (Class 10) takes way too long
No RAW mode
Not a lot of manual choices like setting focus, aperture
Summary The L120 was a much better product at a lower price. The only difference is the zoom and resolution - both do not make a difference in real life though. I sold mine after 4 months of use and will either try different manufacturer or use my wife's Nikon DSLR... if it only was less bulky.
Pros Easy to set-up and use.
Cons Slow response time. Camera readiness between frames were slow. Also, slow readinesss between video and still shots for my purposes.
Summary I used this camera for my children's graduation and awards ceremonies. I lost out on photo opportunities because of the slow response of the camera, especially while needing to take multiple quick shots. The picture clarity was fine for the price of the camera and served its purpose.
Pros light weight, easy to operate, Cnet's review is on point.
Cons slow shooting, slow flash, no cover for the back LCD screen, use a lot of battery power since there is no view finder that comes with this camera.
Summary I purchase this little camera so that I could take better long rang pics than my Canon A80 plus better long range shots. I am partial to Canon cameras, I use a larger Canon for the "real" shots but so far this is not that bad since I just purchased it last Friday. Best Buy had it on sale for a great price.
Pros The color presented in the picture is awesome
Cons If there is some other color would be perfect
