I really enjoy using this camera! Although it I not the most perfect camera I think its brilliant for a good priced camera that takes quality pictures for good memories. I bought it simply to take pictures when the family go on days out or on holidays. I also bought it because it was a great price! I bought it from my local camera and photo shops for just £84.99. When I went out to buy a camera I was expecting to have to pay around £200 so when I saw this one with 10% off and with its list off good features I was very happy and decided I would buy it!
The second thing about this camera I loved is the zoom. It has a 5x zoom that doesn't go blurry when you zoom in more as I have found a lot of cameras/phone cameras do this. I find it very useful having such a good zoom as I can still take good quality pictures but from far away. It is also good I find a concerts being far away from the stage but I can still get good pictures with my camera! Also I find it very cleaver how it has a 5x zoom yet the body of the camera is very thin and slim.
Another thing I like about it is the video recording. On my previous camera the video quality went much downhill from the picture capture but on this camera I no longer have this problem as the video has a brilliant picture quality. I enjoy making videos more than taking picture so having this good quality picture on photo and video capture made me very pleas with my purchase of this camera. I also like the panorama option that allows me to take a much wider or longer shot than the normal camera does. I do enjoy using this as I never before had it on my old camera. The panorama shot is also easy to work and the camera basically explains how to use it itself.
Another reason I enjoy using this camera I because of the easy layout and how easy it is to function. The buttons on the top and front are all shown well and I could tell what they meant straight away. Also before, on my old camera when I pressed the button to take a shot the picture often took about 3-4 seconds after which was annoying when taking pictures of moving things, but the camera doesn't have a delay before the shot that is noticeable so I can now happily take pictures of moving things without worrying about missing them.
I would 100% recommend this camera to a family of a couple as it is a brilliant camera for taking clear shots that also come out clear when printed and a great way of making videos for great memories. I enjoy using this camera, and if you decide to buy it them I am sure you will too.
