"Camera big disappointment, zoom locked up;"1.5 starson by optobear
Pros: Camera has many setting; lightweight; good wide angle; good landscape pictures
Cons: The camera locked up 4 times when I used the camera for the first time. As a result the camera would not take a picture nor would it shut off. Eventually shut off but after using it again in the zoom mode would lock up again.
Summary: I have returned the camera. Very unreliable. The zoom although large should not become fixed when used. The zoom locked 4 time when I used the camera on the first day. This was in taking about 160 pictures. I also did not like how soft the pictures were when I reviewed them later. I had high hopes when I bought the camera because it had many features that I wanted. I also did not like the fact that you had to charge the battery unless you bought a seperate charger that did not come with the camera. The battery took about 3 hrs to charge. The flap that you lift to charge the camera is very flimsy and I am sure will not hold up and it will seperate from the camera body. Returned the camera after 3 days.
