This 10 megapixel point and shoot digi comes with a 3.5" touch screen tap focusing, a sweet Nikkor lens, and an Expeed image processor all for just $250. Is it worth it?
Look below the cut for the written review from Attack of the Show.
What You Need to Know
- The camera has virtually no buttons on it that gives it a sleek look. It doesn't have a lens cover or anything like that protruding from the body, so it fits nicely in a pocket
- It is almost 1" thick and weighs about 5.5 oz. This means it might be a bit bigger overall than you want
- It has another huge 3.5" touch screen (like the Sony Wi-Fi camera)
- The icons are big and you can do swipes, but there are times when your touch won't register
- You can also tap-focus on anything in the frame which works well
- There's also fun stuff like retouching and drawing on pictures
- Overall, the touch screen is cool to have, but it's not any faster than using buttons
- Outdoor shots with a lot of light look good; colors are bright and there is a good amount of detail
- Indoor and low-light shots are sub-par at best. There is a lot of grain, a tendency to be out of focus, and sometimes the flash causes "lens flares" on the image
- The image quality alone is enough to make this not worth the price
- Yes, it's easy and fun to use, but you can get a camera that takes better quality pictures (Canon SD1100) for almost $100 less
