A year and a half ago was one of the best not very expensive Amateur digital cameras. Good autofocus. It is relatively good to shoot on the move. Normal color rendition. The size of the matrix 10 mega pixels. 4x optical zoom. Large display — easy to view photos. A lot of shooting modes. Very good quality videos. Runs on AA batteries. Convenient for right-handed case on the right has a thickening, which is convenient to hold the device, so it does not slip out of hands. Of the minuses is that not a very good night shot.

Advantages:great display, good video quality, comfortable, good quality photos, good autofocus

This inexpensive, easy to operate, compact camera is suitable for both everyday shooting and travel. The advantages of the camera, I would include not only an advanced “stuffing”: 10 megapixel camera, good zoom, ability to shoot macro, many shooting modes, but its relatively small size! Which is very convenient for fans. You will appreciate the fact that you can choose the camera in the color that suits you: whether it is classic silver, low-key elegant blue or pink, to match your character. I use this camera more than a year and very happy. I love to shoot nature, and the camera copes with this thanks to the multiple functions of landscapes (macro, infinity). If you need an inexpensive camera for everyday life: for shooting family photos, capturing those funny or important moments for you, while you appreciate the quality of the pictures, then this camera is for you.

Advantages:great display, good video quality, comfortable, good quality photos, good autofocus

The camera is not perfect, but if hands grow from where it is necessary, very much even anything. I don’t remember exactly how much I use it, but I have a very, very long time. This is my first digital camera. At first I hated it, but over time, with a huge number of photos taken, I got used to it, I couldn’t even imagine my life without him.I’ll start with the box contents (see photo). There was: the camera; wrist strap; test memory card 32Mb; 5 books (mini-manual) in Russian, Ukrainian, Estonian, Latvian, Lithuanian; AV; USB cable; CDs with detailed instructions (in ten languages); two batteries.Without leaving the store, I immediately bought a memory card a little more volume and batteries. Supported memory cards• SD memory Cards• SDHC memory Cards• MultiMediaCards• MMCplus memory Cards• memory Cards HC MMCplus the camera is fairly lightweight, it weighs just over 200 grams. Comfortable to hold in hand. Very simple configuration and management. In control panel, there are arrows, the settings button, select, menu, play mode, highlight the entities, and the button transferring images, there is a speaker, indicators of focus. Located on top of the on/off button, mode dial (10 to disk + you can choose several in SCN mode), the zoom lever (4) and the shutter button. Front, lens, flash, microphone and light bulb to reduce red-eye/timer. From below, in addition to the cover of the battery compartment/memory card, there is a tripod socket. The screen displays practically all the information, except for the level of battery charge. There is a mode detailed photo viewer with all the data, including a histogram.Turn to shooting modes.Simple mode (in the instruction it is recommended for beginners, I do not recommend)For me it was too simple. In this mode does not work most of the buttons, the camera decides for himself what to do. Yes, and the photos are not of particularly high quality.AUTO (for beginners I would advise it)Movie, program, Portrait, Landscape, Night snapshot, Kids and Pets, Party(indoor scenes), Night scene, Sunset, Foliage, Snow, Beach, Fireworks, Aquarium, ISO(manufacturers warn that the ISO regime may be affected by noise, why have it visible always). Also, in some modes, such as Fireworks, Night scene, same ISO photos are blurry, the manufacturer recommends in these modes to work with a tripod.Almost all modes, you can select the object distance and the flash setting. In addition, in program mode, you can choose effects: vivid, neutral, Sepia, b/W + manual setup. The video is not very good quality. But what you want from the camera 10.0 mpx, but still for the money(about 3500 thousand RUB.)?Don’t always focus where I would like, and sometimes doing it long enough. Another disadvantage is a very long flash charge(sometimes 5-10 seconds).

Advantages:large display, comfortable, good quality photos
