"Good point-and-shoot with Wifi But..."4.5 starson by Donald_Bower
Pros: See in summary
Cons: See in summary
Summary: The DV150F is a 16 megapixel "point and shoot" camera that has wifi connection, front and back LCD displays and is basically designed for picture sharing and "selfies." So, is this actually better than your phone camera, because some of the smartphones have fairly good cameras. Is this worth having?Edit:
BETTER THAN A PHONECAM?
Pros --better than your phonecam?
Optical Zoom lens
Potentially better low light pictures
Battery life (the lithium ion battery has a long life; your phone may be run down at any particular time.)
Can be used when your phone must be turned off. (Of course, then you can be the annoying guy flashing during the concert, instead of the annoying guy flashing AND beeping and texting during the concert.)
It has a self timer that integrates with your smartphone, letting you use the phone as a remote trigger to take remote control of the camera (group shots with the photographer included)
Do you really need to carry another electronic gadget? If you just need an emergency cam, and your phone is up and running reliably, maybe the phone is all you really need.
Bright light situations: this is no better than a phone screen when it's bright out--there's no viewfinder on this camera.
As a camera, this is a reasonable budget choice at the sale price. You get high resolution, optical zoom (the lens moves out to take telephoto pictures.)
You get a front and back LCD screen (hello, Selfie.)
Takes one lithium ion battery.
Takes microSD memory cards, not the standard larger format SD cards found in most cameras. (But your phone probably takes a microSD.) To load into your computer, you need an adapter to hold the little chip, though you can also connect via a microplug USB cable, which is probably how you would interface with a PC or tablet, assuming you're not uploading via Wifi.
There is Wifi connectivity for instant sending to phones or a Cloud-sharing internet application. To get Wifi on a DSLR (the more advanced interchangeable lens type camera) you have to spend quite a bit.
You also get the ability to do MPEG movies.
The controls are a directional pad on the back, simple to use. For example, switching to macro (close ups of flowers, insects) is accessed through the directional pad and is intuitive.
Lens is fast (wide open) at f2.5 --you will have opportunity for low light situations.
But it can be slow to start up, slow to process between shots, so if speed is of the essence, you need to find another choice.
After 400 ISO (the speed of the digital "film") the pictures get grainy and noisy. So really, for low, low light, this is not a good choice without a flash and of course, the flash on this type of camera will not light up a stadium, or even a long hallway.
The lens isn't particularly sharp and you are limited to 5X zoom.
As a pocket camera, at this price, it's pretty decent,especially considering the Wifi features. For low light situations, you'd be better off with a different choice of camera. As ever you get what you pay for. In this case. the Wifi connectivity is a big plus as are the dual screens, so for a point-and-shoot-communicate camera, not a bad deal at all. If you need higher quality pics and speed, this isn't a good choice.
