    • Good camera

      from Maple Ridge, BC on November 13, 2018

      Fits in the pocket and takes great pictures even at high zoom in good light. My only recurrent problem is the position of the movie button which I often accidentally press with my thumb.

    • Awful! Just awful!

      from Ottawa, ON on August 31, 2018

      I purchased this camera from Best Buy and returned it the same day. I tested it out in good lighting conditions and it was absolutely awful! This camera is essentially one big gimmick. The zoom range is 24-720mm, however, the images aren't even sharp at 24mm and anything over 40mm is just a blurry, fuzzy mess! by the time you get to the 720mm, the camera is completely unusable. If you crop in on a still image at 24mm, even one that appears to be somewhat sharp, disappointment soon follows as you realize that there is absolutely nothing in the image that is sharp. In anything but great lighting conditions, images are fuzzy and full of noise, even with the aperture wide open and ISO set to 80-400. This is a nicely build little camera, but the result you get is just garbage. Based on the reviews on Best Buy that I based my own purchase off of, I can tell you that they are severely overrated and exaggerated. If you have a decent smartphone, it will most likely take better images and video.
