After one year of use, I post my opinion Pros: - smart design. - very pocketable - lots of functions - great video mode - long life battery - 7x zoom lens - periscopic lens well protected from dust - fast and reliable focusing Cons Rather heavy for it's size Poor macro mode image stabilization quite inefficient Still pictures are too soft an colors are not always natural. Conclusion: I'm very satisfiet with this camera Problems: Nothing to notice yet

This camera packs a heck up a lot of features. Suprisingly I have not taken a ton of photos with it, but lots of videos. The advantage of this camera is you take it with you everywhere. Goes in your pocket, even inside a case. The Bestshot presets are great, for both movies and photos. Also, the ISO is reasonable and does not gain up to 1600 unless you want it to. Pretty much stays at ISO 400 & less using the presets. I actually like the computer cradle for the majority of use, but it ...

I had reservations in getting this camera coz of the infamous "stabilizer unavailable" problem and the red eye but finally gave in when the price really went down. Mine was black and is "made in japan" if that means anything... So far no problems after 2 months of use. The greatest feature is the 7x optical zoom which you could use while shooting movies. This isn't just a competent digicam folks, it's also a very good camcorder replacement and will render your MiniDV obsolete. You can also ...

Here is my opinion after using the V7 for about 4 months now, taken about 4500 photos and videos with it. BRIEFLY: Used purely as a digital camera, the V7 has excellent features for an ultracompact. However, image quality is less than spectacular. Pictures have excellent color to my eyes but most pictures tend to be a little soft especially on close examination (I think due to excessive noise reduction). It doesn't help that the lens is on the slow side, the CCD-shift anti-shake mechanism ...

I needed - a small/tiny camera, - fast response, - good movie mode with optical zoom, - high ISO, - wide angle. I have this camera, black model, for 4 weeks. I use it for snapshots, so I do not have big expectations from the camera. Here are my findings: - Excellent build. I would like the lens slide cover to be not shiny (fingerprint magnet) and a little bit more sturdy (but is good quality). - The features are many, I would like an easier menu, so I can change ISO or quality faster; the ...

I like the V7, have it with me all the time. Great zoom, good movie mode with mpeg h.264 format, stereo sound for movies, good manual settings, great portability and nice battery running time. I'm happier with the pictures than what I expected after having read the review.

Returned to retailer - I purchased this camera as a carry-around camera for situations when my Nikon D200 and D70 wouldn't be appropriate. It has a lot of features nicely packed into a small package, namely aperture and shutter priority and 7x zoom. I was also interested in the non-extending lens. The camera has great image quality when used outdoors in bright sunlight, but I was so unsatisfied with indoor image quality and certain features that I returned it. Problems: - Image quality for ...

The movie mode, especially the 16:9 mode, is the best I've seen in a digital compact. There is no noticeable artifacts and the sound is clear too. I am using a 4GB SDHC card, giving me up to 75 minutes of movie. Good enough for trips. The 7x zoom lens is simply awesome. It is silent and the full-range zoom can be used during movie mode - incredible. The lens does not protrude from the camera even during zoom, amazing. There is also a seamless digital zoom mode that works very well. In ...

This is really excellent compact camera. Bestshot modes are saticfaction. Manuel adjusts is good. Price is enough. Problems: The most important problem is not to be charged without cradle. Max shutter speed is low 1/800 sec.
