    Size is a plus, but flash position is a minus.

    Flash

    Bought this camera to carry in my work bag and snap photos when the opportunity presents itself. My DSLR is wonderful, but just too large to carry around for occasional photos through the day. My phone camera is very convenient, but not very good at night shots. This camera is the perfect combination of both extremes. At 4 inches by 2.5 inches, it's small size is a definite plus. Slips into my work bag pocket without picking up a lot of space. I carry it easily in my shirt front pocket or pants pockets and hardly know it's there. Photos aren't DSRL quality, but that's expected with a camera this size and price range (though it's better than my phone camera with night shots). The only negative is the flash is situated in an awkward position in the front and my middle finger blocks the flash sometimes. Holding the camera one handed (in your right hand), most people put their thumbs on the back, index finger on the shutter button, and their other finger curl around the front and side of the camera. The problem is your fingers sometimes get in the way of the flash and your photo is only half lit or not lit at all. Use this camera with two hands and you should be okay.

    White screen of death!

    Posted .

    Charged my phone and when I finally turned it on, I got a white screen. After googling the issue, it's the white screen of death. Tapping the top where it says cyber shot did not work for me. I will be returning this to Best Buy the day before my Europe trip, thanks for nothing.

    We bought this camera for our son on his trip to New York. He doesn't use cell phones or tablets that often (outside of school) so we didn't know if we'd need to keep showing him how to use it. For a 7yo we didn't have to explain a thing, he was able to take it and start using immediately. He's recording video with it, disabled and enabled the flash with ease and then able to scroll his pictures and play his videos without problems! Definitely recommend for someone looking to grab a good first camera or get their child who'd they prefer doesn't have a phone.

    I needed a back up camera since I use my regular camera quite often for my business and it was having some problems. This one fit the bill and was a great price also! It takes great photos and will work out well for my needs.

    Good camera for everyday user

    Overall, this is a good camera. The only thing I don't like about it is the long shutter delay. You hold it down to take a picture and there's a long pause sometimes. I haven't checked out the video features on it yet. It has a great zoom and I really enjoy the rechargeable battery.

    Budget Friendly Travel Companion

    This is a great little camera with just the right amount of features. If you are looking for something inexpensive to take with you on a trip where you would rather not lose something like a new smart phone then this is for you. Decent battery life and awesome still pictures. Does get blurry if you are trying to take action shots with lots of motion.

    Got this for my 11 year old daughter for her birthday and she loves it. The best part, i didn't have to figure out how to use it first, she got it all on her own. Recommend for anyone that is looking for a basic point and shoot camera that is small enough to tuck away and carry anywhere.

    Needed a camera that wasn't so big and took great pictures. This camera is perfect if that's what you are looking for.

    Video problems

    The camera takes great pictures, but the video stops after twelve minutes and 45 seconds. If you want to take long videos don't get this. Other than that it's a great camera.

    I originally bought the camera for a trip and misplaced it so when I saw this one on sale...I got it again. My parents gave me their expensive camera to use and I liked it but some of my better pictures turned out from this one...shhh...don't tell the parents!

    Great basic camera

    Posted .

    I bought this as a gift for my 11 year old niece. I think this camera fills a gap for people who don't have smartphones; it's easy to set up and use, takes decent photos, and doesn't break the bank. For the most part newer smartphones will take as good if not better snaps, but she wanted to run around and take pictures with her friends and of cats, and this is perfect for that.

    camera is durable and water proof. it gets dropped daily and keeps on working. employees are very hard on this camera, but its still working great. if you need a durable water proof camera for your non caring employees than this is a great choice for the money.

    This camera takes great pictures. A big upgrade from the 12 MP camera I've had before this one.
