"Decent price, not so decent options"2.0 starson by arketekchic
Pros: Price, compact design, zoom
Cons: Burst mode, poor videos, bad low light photos, SLOW!!!
Summary: I purchased this camera as a replacement for the compact camera I dropped in the pool this summer and wasn't able to repair. I returned it after a week :-( I couldn't take the slowness. I have had 2 sonys that I've absolutely loved, however they were bigger, high zoom and had a lot more features. My HX1 still works great even without the LCD screen that my 2yr old smashed. I was very disappointed with this camera, especially after the store associate assured me that it was a great camera and I was going to love it. Having 2 small children one of my favorite features has always been burst mode because it allows you to catch just the right picture when they're jumping in the pool, dancing, cheerleading, etc. This camera however is incredibly slow and only takes 3 pictures in burst mode. Not acceptable in my eyes! Especially coming from a Nikon that allowed you to take up to 50 photos in burst mode! (The downfall being they were reduced to 3mp) I was disappointed in the quality of photos as well; every photo I tried to crop lost clarity big time, it's 16mp for crying out loud! I get better quality pics from my phone! I was also annoyed with the fact that the exposure was too bright and I had to reset it every time I turned the camera on. Overall I'd have to say that I would NOT recommend this camera.
