"A bit disappointing..."2.0 starson by benkim211
Pros: Screen, fairly simple menu system, zoom range
Cons: Photo quality, especially with flash, low light, focus speed and accuracy
Summary: I bought this camera on the reviews (both CNET, other sites, user opinions) and was completely ready to be "wow'ed" by the results. I was at least hoping to get decent results, consistent with a good "point and shoot." I have been trying to reconcile the results I received however, and now have to conclude, the reviews and opinions of others were based on promise, not actual results. I'm an avid photographer that has several camerals, include a couple SLRs and numerous "point and shoots". This is the first of my cameras that didn't meet expectations, which admittedly were high.
Photo quality is mediocre, especially in mid to low light, and it is slow to focus, often not focusing correctly. My Sony T-9 is far superior in photo quality and shot taking process, though supposedly with 2 less megapixels. Photos with the T100 are grainy, and last dynamic range in color which is noticible in most photos/prints. I would have to rank it as the least impressive camera that I've owned going back to my first digital camera, a Fuji 2MP i purchased in 2001.
I really wanted to like this camera, but must say I have buyers remorse. I'm still hoping the HD playback will win me over (have yet to try this), but the photo quality and prints that come from this camera really are mediocre at best.
