Disappointed

  • User Rating: Disappointing

  • Ease of Use:
  • Durability:
  • Battery Life:
  • Photo Quality:
  • Shutter Lag

Pros:Great image quality. Nice interface.

Cons:Fragile: the way the lens pops moves automatically is unreliable and breaks easily.

I purchased this camera on Sunday, June 8th. The second time I used it I started getting errors stating, "Lens error, restart camera." Now, 5 days have passed and the camera is completely useless. I can't even turn it on without getting the error message. There is nothing I can do to fix it. I did not drop the camera or anything to the effect.

While the camera takes excellent quality photos and is very user friendly, this message has really irked me and I would NOT recommend this camera to anyone.
