    Wife is "technically challenged "yet she is totally comfortable with it. The transfer of photos to her iPad is a big plus

    Camera did not work, so I returned it

    Bought this camera because of wifi and Bluetooth features. I turned on camera and it worked fine but initial battery had very little charge. Turned off camera to charge and it would not turn back on. I checked internet to resolve this problem. It said to remove memory card and battery to turn back on. I then charged the battery to full and turned the camera off. Returned 1 hour later and battery was dead and would not turn on. I removed the battery and memory card again, then camera would turn on but said that the battery was completely dead. I then decided to return the camera and get a Canon camera instead. I bought the camera for ease of and more capacity than phone camera, but this camera was not easy to use, in fact it did not work at all. Having to remove the battery to turn on is unacceptable.

    Good quality but the screen is very cheap so you will not get to see the quality of the picture. Alse it takes a long time to take the pictures and load the flash.

    The camera didn't focus well nor did the flash work when I needed it to. You can't turn on the flash it is only automatic and doesn't work. Couldn't connect it to wifi or put pictures on the app. Not worth the money no matter the price.
