WOW !!...Hero 5...I purchased for my husband after returning a dash cam (the installation seemed too complicated) and just used a go pro mount on his dashboard and it works perfectly as a dash cam and now we have the option to use the cameras elsewhere too....The camera is a good "action" cam, but the app definitely is not, takes way too long to load, can be buggy, and does not always allow you to perform the desired and needed tasks (tells me the camera is busy when I need to change a parameter) I use this camera remotely almost all the time, meaning it is not within reach during shoots, so many missed opportunities because of this.Hit the road with this GoPro HERO5 Black camera in your pocket, and share every moment with your subscribers and friends. One-button control lets you snap a photo or capture a video with a simple touch of the shutter. This GoPro HERO5 Black camera is compatible with all GoPro accessories for easy incorporation.

So fun...I liked...This Christmas I bought the 7 mini I was happy with it and thought it was a fine camera but after seeing this one at best buy I thought to myself maybe ive made the wrong decision so I picked this guy up the very same day and I dont regret it, I returned the 7 mini after seeing the improvements this has made from it, the button as opposed to puilling the camera out to turn it on the light meter to show the recommended lighting setting....I really liked this camera but thought the pictures didn't came out that pretty they were a bit dark and they were way too small I thought they would be a bit bigger.Take high-quality photos with this Fujifilm mini camera.

Love !...In love...As someone who has used a variety of camera's from a 35mm Pentax to a Point and Shoot Canon I have some experience but am by no means a pro with years of photography in different situations....Other than the auto focus being a little off I do enjoy the photos I don't do too many parties, i'm more of into portraits so the auto focus isn't really a big deal for me but still took a star off.Truly discover photography with the Nikon D3400.

Not bad...Smile !...This camera is an amazing camera with 20.3 mp and a 40x optical zoom I don't even need the digital zoom this camera is as close as professional as you can get for a good price couldn't ask for more from a camera...I've been very happy with my Canon SX210 IS (with a 14 power optical zoom) for more than a decade, but when Best Buy put a Canon SX720 HS on sale for Xmas, I couldn't resist buying a 40x optical zoom that was only slightly larger.Get super-close to your subject with this Canon Powershot camera.

5 Stars...Love it...Buying a separate charger for the batteries might be a good idea as you have to charge the batteries IN THE CAMERA which means you can't use the camera at that time OR must remember to charge the batteries over night or when the camera is not being used....in the daytime or very well lit places this camera shines, at night time not so much you can see a little bit of distortion but not as much as will be a deal breaker.Utilizing Optical SteadyShot image stabilization, a BIONZ X image processor and an Exmor R CMOS sensor, this Sony Handycam HDRCX405/B camcorder enables you to capture video footage with 1920 x 1080 resolution and sharp still images.

5 Stars...It's ok...I keep it close it's a great camera for everyday use and people are always asking me to take a picture and send it to them " because who wants to take a pic on your phone??"...The good thing about this camera is that it is light to load it, very good photos with a lot of clarity, but its disadvantage is that it is a bit slow when you change your cursor position and you do not have the option to make a long video, otherwise very good .Capture vivid, high-quality images with this Nikon Coolpix camera.
