I just been looking around for a cheap camera that i won't have to worry about if it gets dropped as its mostly going to be used for nights out, gigs and general activities where it may get damaged. Although i have yet to use it on any of these as i just got it over 4hours ago (3days to come in post) i am really impressed with the quality for 80pounds.
The case feels solid, the buttons are a more to the plastic side but feel tight and firm. The picture quality is outstanding, although the auto mode always uses flash even when its well light over exposing so may have to use more manual settings.
The camera is lightweight and the same size as every other standard size compact.
One thing i will use a lot is the video capture, it wasn't going to be amazing for the 80punds but it certainly is very good, only thing i can say against it is the auto focus find it hard to realise that it needs focussing but that may be down to the fact i was moving it around to various focal lengths which may have confused it.
usb plug (not had much luck with these in past but seems to work well with this product)
battery (just the one)
start up guild + warranty
av cable without red just yellow and white
If the product lets me down i will be back here to let you guys know. But so far i recommend to get it cheap while you can!!
Been using it out and about, no way of saving settings, focus is really good until you actually take photo it will most of the time go out of focus or take ages taking the photo making it blurry. I thought thats out its just the shutter speed i'll change it, no way of changing it so very hard to get good photos.
I took it to a gig, was stood at the back and near no one moving to knock me or antyhing but from the photos you would think i was in the pit. Video quality is just a little better than phone quality (5-8mp phones) but the sound just cuts out at any sudden or loud noises so don't think it would be good for videos.
Hope this helps people, i think i have decided on this being good for nights out, festivals instead of a disposible etc, DO NOT GET IF YOU PLAN TO USE VIDEO RECORD, GOING TO GIGS OR ANYTHING THAT WOULD REQUIRE A FAST CLEAR SHUTTER
