"Loving the touch screen"4.0 starson by sidewayk
Pros: Touch screen. I bought a clear cover to protect it - would be nice if this was included.
Quick from turning on to taking a pic.
Good speed between shots.
Auto intelligent mode is great for lazy photographers like me.
Video quality is good.
Cons: Zoom could be better for my liking, but not essential to some people.
Summary: I did a lot of research online before buying a new camera.
The main things I wanted were:
- point and shoot
- not too large
- good lens
- wide angle
- good zoom
- auto and some manual features
- not too gimmicky
- video, limited only to memory card
- HD images and video
- ability to zoom during video recording
- not too expensive in comparison to similar cameras available
- no GPS
- touch screen a bonus.
The Panasonic FX580 pretty much covered all these things. I have only had it for a month so far, but I am very happy with my purchase.
