Advantages: Great Price
Disadvantages: Not great in dark setting even with flash
This is actually the first time that I really used Dooyoo as a buying guide myself, and although I generally look at the reviews here before buying products, this was the first time I put faith in the most popular digital camera here.
I have no regrets in buying this, and have only had it a short while, but took it on my recent trip to Budapest, which by the way is a beautiful city, and it did the job. This has 12.1 mega pixels which is a very decent standard. Don't expect to be able to take art type picture with this though. I find with digital cameras they don't quite do the trick, and you need a true full lense camera.
It is suitable for beginners, there is all the standard buttons you will find on a camera with flash, and zoom of up to four times here. Also I must add that it has face recognition which seems to be a regular for cameras these days. However I did find that it seems to struggle more, with more people in the shot, but I guess for the price this was to be expected.
In terms of the quality of the picture, like I mentioned before, with these small digital cameras there is only so much that you can expect. One of the reasons I bought this camera was to capture the memories for when I went out partying. The reason is because it isn't too expensive, and although I would never want to lose it, it wouldn't be the end of the world if I did. However I found that in dark places like clubs, the quality of the pictures was worse. It is fine in daylight, but yea night time is definitely not the domain here.
Luckily instead of having to buy batteries and waste money here, it comes with a rechargeable battery which is the staple thing for Sony to provide for their cameras these days. As per normal find a SD slot, where you can easily expand the memory to fit on hundreds more photos.
In Currys this is only £70 now and the same goes with PC world, however I highly recommend buying it off Ebuyer, who provide fast delivery, and it is £66.80 on their site right now. The only issue is that if you have problems with the camera then I always think it is better to have got the camera straight from a retail shop. Saying that I haven't had any problems so far with the camera and fingers crossed I wont do in the future.
Lastly just to quickly mention that you can take videos on this camera, but to be honest I haven't really tried this out properly yet, but from the short view I have had it looks fine, but I will be popping back at a later date to update this review if I get a chance to use it more.
Overall I think this is a decent camera, and definitely better than the cameras provided on phones, even then higher end phones with their 8-10 mega pixel cameras. However it isn't absolutely amazing quality, it does have its weakness, especially when moving the camera fast and where there isn't great lights. But for the price I can't complain and can give this four stars.
Summary: A very good camera for the price.
