First off, I’m submitting my opinion, because whenever I buy anything, I always look for others input on the internet. Just giving back what I take. I’m an expert, by no means, but I’m very picky about product engineering and picture quality. I’ve had the camera for about 3 months and taken hundreds of pictures with it. Pros Can’t say enough about the power of the image stabilization feature. I found with my last camera that most of the manual settings as well as the pre programmed settings ...

Overall the camera operated as advertised. I really liked the speed. This camera is great from shot to shot and the burst is spectacular. The 640x48 video is also very good. A good feature that seems to be unadvertised is the ability to "zoom" while you are producing video. This is very good. Problems: Pictures had noise even at ISO 50. I compared it to the Panasonic DMC-FZ5 and the Panasonic DMC-FZ5 pictures were much better. However, when printing on 4x6 I can say that the Dimage held ...

Overall the camera operated as advertised. Problems: Pictures had noise even at ISO 50. I compared it to the Panasonic DMC-FZ5 and the Panasonic DMC-FZ5 pictures were much better. However, when printing on 4x6 I can say that the Dimage held on...just slightly less quality than the Panasonic. On screen, however there was a big difference. The Panasonic wins.

Okay, so I've had this camera in my hands multiple times throughout the day, I've sold the Z1, Z2, Z3 and I am very impressed with the upgrades they've made. From a sales perspective, the clearly labeled on/off switch is wonderful. You have no idea how many people couldn't figure out how to turn the previous cameras on and off. The zoom is easy to use, it's very comfortable to hold. Now to all the people complaining about noise and the zoom not being accurate enough: This camera is not ...

I loved this camera! It had everything I wanted & more. Very easy to use, fit perfectly in my hand and for the price- a great deal. Unfortunately, I had to return the camera. See below Problems: The major problem for this camera was the image quality. The photos it produces are terrible. They are noisy and the color is not even close to true. It also has significant trouble focusing in low light, and photos shot indoors are hardly bearable. The one reason to buy a camera is to have ...

The Good: Love the progressive mode! I used this mode to take fast sequence shots of ATV riding and doing jumps and of my dog jumping up and catching his frisbee... awsome shots are caught! Very fun to use ! Eager to take it snow skiing! Nice looking camera that works well for my hands, which are a small average. Good for one handed controlling. The 12x IS zoom is very good and fun to use, except as I mention below. Problems: Having trouble focusing, especially in low light indoors or even ...

After shooting 1000 photos, I subscribe to Simon Joinson's review while adding some details in decreasing order of relevance: 1 - Construction seems subject to dust and moisture issues: the lens barrel accumulates dust inside the camera and the SD card door allows you to see the circuit board inside. Because it is so easy to open, I'm afraid this will be an entry point for dust. In my unit, there is a tiny orifice (an assembly imperfection) in the TFT window that worries me in case I take ...
