Since it was 3.2 meg ,it was good to find the 740 with better zoom feature .I liked it when I took it out of the box ,charged the battery and tried it out .The zoom feature was a nice treartt after my old one.Being a holiday type photo taker (not pro) I found the pictures fine and dandy .I also liked the weather proof feature as just before the old camera got slammed in the door ,we ...

This is a very interesting model,, sometimes compelling, other times disappointing. Color very vibrant, does faces well , 5x zooms shows why every camera should be at least like this Problems: Problems:s where this does not exactly well. The color has green hue and outdoors does not get leaves as in trees well sort looks mushy, and I think the sensor needs to be bigger The weird green just don't look natural except in bright light which for some reason then makes it look fantastic.The door to ...

Prizes go to whoever can guess my reply. Problems: Failed after 8 weeks out of the box

I've a lot of cameras, up to 1ds. Got this because I wanted something pocketable for particular occasions. You cannot see the screen in really bright sunshine and there's no optical viewfinder.

GREAT CAMERA!! when i first got this i loved all the easy shooting modes, the image stabalization was the best i've seen in awhile. Even though im a beginner i caught up fast with the different settings. if your looking for a nice sleek, point and shoot camera this is what you want. The rechargable battery is a great feature and some of the pictures are even high quality. Problems: some pics are a bit grainy in incadescent light. but none the less nice. alot of trouble with physical movement. ...

The pictures are grainy in low light. other than that This is a pretty good camera. feels solid like if I dropped it it wouldn't quit. (not trying it though!) lots of "settings" for beginners and people who just want to take a picture and not worry. comes with presets for things like Indoor, outdoor, portrait, theres a museum setting... lots of different settings. 5X zoom is real nice especially for a Point and shoot! There is even an image stabilization. I beleive it is only ...
