After owning my little 2 mega pixel camera for 4 years now, i decided to finally buy myself a decent camera.I live in the UK so the price for electronics isn't always cheap. I have found that i could find something in one shop to be one price and then go into a different shop and it could be half the price! It is both confusing and frustrating!
After hunting around different shops in the UK i decided to wait until i went on my yearly family holiday to Florida, to get one. So I did.I bought this awesome little camera for $149.99, it didn't come with a memory card to i bought a 8GB memory card that was on sale for $12.99. So in total i spent about $170 dollars on my camera. With the exchange rate at the time, it was about 130 pounds in total! BARGAIN!
The size is compact and will fit into your bag/pocket very easilyTHE WEIGHT
It is not very heavy which is a bonus because i found that most cameras i looked at were rather heavy.THE LOOK
When you first look at it you might think "Well, were's the second screen!?" i thought this when i looked at it. The second screen blends in with the rest of the camera. It comes to life when you press the button at the top of the camera next to the ON button. You can see the picture on both screens.THE SPECIAL FEATURES
It has face detection which most digital cameras have nowadays. It also has smile detection. I had so much fun with this with my Dad when we bought it. If you turn the smile detection on then it will only take a picture if you smile. I found this so funny. It has a mode where if you are taking a picture of a child it can play funny videos on the front of the screen for your child to see and smile at. So if you have a child that will refuse to smile, then this camera will probably work for you! It also has image stabilization so if you are like me and have shaky hands then the stabilization will control the picture quality, and prevent it from blurring.It also has night mode, and a firework mode.
PICTURE QUALITYIt is a 12.4 mega pixel camera with a 3 inch LCD screen, 4 x optical zoom, 4 x digital zoom, which brings out brilliant picture qualities. I will put some pictures up that i took on holiday to show you just how brilliant they are.
