    Wonderful gift

    Bought this for my daughters to share and it was a bit of good and bad move. Good move because they uber love their mini shot and can't get over taking photos and printing. Bad move because they can't decide which owns it for real. Gotta buy another one.

    Angles

    This camera looks small but it has wide-angle lens that can cover the subject of your photography. Lol. It absolutely can. I use this camera to take photos of gardens I like and it works.

    "Pocket" Powerhouse

    My wife and I like to cruise & travel by car & motorcycle. I've been shooting with Olympus, Ricoh, Canon and Nikon since the mid-60's. For the past two years, I've switched over to the Sony a6000, a7Riii, a7Riv & a9ii. I love to shoot Radio Controlled aircraft. When I saw the specs on this palm-sized wonder, I had to check it out. I truly expected to find some shortcomings/compromises. I haven't yet. I keep this camera within arm's reach at all times. Right now, it's on the couch beside me-just in case the cats get cute! Focusing is quick and accurate. Metering is spot on. It's solid build quality is everything that I've come to expect from Sony. It's a point and shoot with a manual function. The pop-up eyepiece is a super feature. The 200mm equiv. zoom is handy. If I need more reach, my a9ii & 200-600mm is in my bag. The RX100 is an amazing camera. With the Kit, you should be able to blog to your heart's content. I am super happy with this addition to my arsenal. Princess, we're ready for the next cruise! Highly recommend Sony cameras, especially, the RX100-series cameras.

    Still experimenting

    More than just point& shoot, with excellent megapixel and speed. Easy menu selection. Grip provides single frame/movie selection with zoom and the small tripod balances well if external mix is also attached.

    Best built digital camera I have ever owned

    I have owned many digital & film cameras over the years. The only camera I can equate the build/feel of the X100v to is a Nikon FT. It took me a few hours to get a handle on the Fuji menu and control setup. Instead of having an A,P,S,M style setup, you choose which settings you want to control with the dials, and set the ones you want the camera to control to A(uto).

    The way the optical viewfinder works is great... the frame lines adjust depending on subject distance and you can configure the display to your preferences.

    You should probably plan on buying a few accessories... lens hood with filter adapter, extra battery and charger, and a case/strap.

    The positives : Great viewfinder, film simulations are very cool and not full of crazy settings you will never use. Menus/settings take some time to understand... lots of youtube videos to explain them. Out of camera jpegs can be amazing.

    The negatives : No external charger included. No hood or filter adapter included to weatherproof the lens. Lightroom 6 raw workflow is complicated.

    I had always wanted an X100 camera, but found it hard to justify. In some ways, I am glad i waited for the V, since it has many new features over the older models. I am glad I got off the fence!

    Everyday camera for anyone.

    I have been waiting for the new version of this for about a year. Finally when it was on pre order I didn’t waste any time. Top notch build quality. Plenty of controls to customize if you choose to do so. I have just scratched the surface of the cameras capability so far. I have been using Canon DSLRs for years, and I still do. However this is just something you can take right out and get the shot. Photos in JPEG straight of the camera are excellent, and the built in Fuji film modes are great. I haven’t even bothered to shoot photos in RAW to edit in Photoshop. Connection between camera and my iPhone works in seconds without any issue. It’s certainly not a cheap camera, however you get what you pay for, and I can see myself owning this for years.

    Great Camera to have!

    This is my first Fujifilm camera and I’m loving it so much! The photos are crisp and the capabilities are endless. Since I bought it, I’ve used it as my every day camera! The tutoring screen in the back helps to get some interesting shots as well. I used some Fujifilm recipes that gave it the grainy effect. Overall, I’d recommend this to both new and experienced photographers!

    Such a perfect compact, every day camera.

    One of the best cameras I've ever bought. It is such an amazing protable and compact camera. The fixed lens has a great aperture, the 27mm lens and 26mp give great sharp images that have been print worthy. The battery doesn't last as much as with my big DSLRs but I got a second battery and I could take plenty of images in one outing. The ND filter helps take images in bright days when you want to keep the aperture at 2. The Fujifilm film simulations give beautiful JPGS that are great straight out of the camera. I've enjoyed using the phone app and can transfer pictures very quick to my phone and post them on my Instagram. My go to camera for street photography and will be my vacation camera. Small and discrete while packing a punch.

    Great camera

    I am not much of a writer, As such, I am adverse to writing reviews. But my experience with this camera made me want to write about it.

    I lost my video camera for work, a sony ZX1, and needed to replace it. I wanted something slightly larger but still compact so I want to be as prone to forget it. The ZX1 is a much more capable video camera than this but this is still workable,

    Do not buy this camera for work especially video it's just too much fun to use personally. This camera, especially once you get a thumb grip and a wrist strap, It's just a dream for street photography. The fact that with one hand, I can pinch the camera with my thumb grip and use my index finger to adjust shutter speed one stop per click and use my middle finger to change aperture and have my primary exposure settings fine-tuning the ISO with my thumb is such a relief and I can do it without looking thanks to the tactile feel of the dials.

    Speaking of exposure. I love to shoot underexposed, And this camera rewards me for overexposing occasionally. This thing handles the blowouts and crushed blacks superbly. I find myself purposely improperly exposing scenes for looks that I want Even the ISO gran can look nice, almost like grain. You can even pull decent details from the shadows and even blowouts. Shots just come out and the more you use it the better the shots become and the ones that don't tend to be savable in a post far more often than what I am used to.

    At F2 on an APS-C center the Bokeh never quite reaches the level of my Rokinon 35m F1.4 but the images are sharp and very flexible to work with. And I still love the Bokeh.

    I learned the value of rangefinders with this camera this has me eyeing a Q2...One thing hopefully they can add IBIS to the next one,

    Highly recommend.

    Powerful beauty

    I knew about the x100 series, but the fixed lens system never intrigued me til now. Wanting to downsize my gear to a single camera has also made taking photos fun again. Not having to worry about any lenses just keeps me in the moment, and it just makes it that much quicker.

    Pros: compact, fast, single lens, fun to use. Accessorize to your hearts content. Sharp f2.0 lens.

    Cons: Price, not fully weather-sealed out the box. In body charging isn’t the best, so you have to buy an additional charger.

    The Perfect Everyday Camera!

    I was in the market for the perfect travel/everyday point & shoot camera and after my research I was lead to the Fujifilm x100v. Take amazing photos and it’s pretty decent on video. I take it everywhere with me because of its small size. I definitely recommend this camera to anybody looking for a everyday carry!

    Great camera!

    Love this camera very easy to use which it could get higher exposure but all in all a step up from the instax mini. But I can say if your going for a more classic film look on your photos, I’d go with an older Polaroid or even other point an shoots.

    Nice little camera does video as well as pictures. Easy to use. Would like to have gotten a different color block sliver or red , but white was all they had so it will do. Is a little bit of pain to open and take out or put in the card but other than that quite satisfied.

    A good upgrade

    I bought this camera as an upgrade to another Panasonic Lumix camera that I have had for several years. I like to keep things simple so I didn't want a camera with detachable lenses and I also wanted it compact enough to fit in my purse when we travel. My priorities were a longer zoom lens and a viewfinder for those days when the glare makes it hard to see the LCD screen. This camera took a bit of getting used to and I still carry the instruction book with me, but the photo quality is great. We are taking a trip to Alaska later this year and I am looking forward to using it to capture the wildlife. I gave it four stars because some of the features are a bit too complex for me and I had to pay quite a bit to get the features I was looking for.

    best superzoom point and shoot available in Ameri

    Hmmm, where to begin... the Lumix DC-ZS200 is the best superzoom point and shoot available in America. I get so many compliments on my pictures, most people think it's a DSLR pro camera when they see my pictures they don't believe i used a DC-ZS200.

    I have a big Dslr but wanted something small and compact for carrying with me for more candid and spare of the moment photograghy. Wanted something better than my phone camera. I also wanted the ability to shoot in manual as well. So far I am pleased with it. My only complaint is it was a little hard to set up the wifii. Sort of confusing. I have downloaded from wifii 3 times now and I'll be honest I've not done it same way twice.

    Nice upgrade from the P900...

    This was a well-needed upgrade from the Nikon P900 and much more compact than the bulky P1000. Its kind of a combination of both, hence the P950 label.

    The viewfinder is a nice update. Much easier to see your photos before and after the shot. It also shoots in RAW format, and you have quick access to exposure compensation with a new dial on the left side of the camera. The "moon mode" is a nice option for those moon shots. It also shoots in 4K @ 30fps or 1080 @ 60 video.

    I wish it was weather and dust proof, as it's a great hiking camera being somewhat light and compact for a 2000mm zoom.

    The image stabilization is very impressive. A great asset when you're at 2000mm zoom.

    I'd say @ $799, it's a lot of bang for the buck. I wish it had a larger sensor, and maybe 20MP over 16MP, but from a value standpoint, Nikon did well.

    Five stars to both BestBuy (Chapel Hill Store) and Nikon.

    Great entry level camera for amateur photographers

    In depth review. I absolutely love this camera. Was just what I wanted for taking pictures of birds at feeder. One thing I would suggest would be to go and watch some videos to make some very basic setting changes to get you off auto settings. The pictures are amazing and camera was easy to set up. I love the remote feature with the android app. You can transfer photos and my favorite part is you can take picture remotely. I have certain birds that are more skittish so I set up camera and took pictures from inside. Was able to get some great action shots by adjusting shutter speed and using continuous shooting mode. Image stabilization works great for handheld shots. 50X zoom gets you close to the action. The negatives would be that, especially with wifi on, it will go through batteries faster so buy some extras. Another is that wifi signal from camera for remote shooting is limited to about 7 or 8 yards. If using to just keep camera steady that isn't an issue. One last negative would be that you have to take camera off tripod to change battery. I haven't done videos so can't say how good that is.

    And when her little brother used it the camera ha!

    This little camera is darling and works really well with good Clare pictures and the only thing I would say is to be careful about being in bright sunlight up close because it looks a little over exposed in bright sun, And when her little brother used it the camera handle was hanging in front of the lens so there was a hand all in the picture which has nothing to do with the camera performance just an FYI

    Worth the Upgrade

    I upgraded to the RX10 iv from the model iii prior to a photography trip to Costa Rica and am very glad I did. Autofocusing was noticeably faster than the previous model. I came home with great shots of birds in motion as well as macro shots of tiny frogs and telephoto shots of far off animals. I was the only Sony camera user among the group of Canon and Nikon DSLR afficionados and feel that my camera performed as well, if not better than the most of the others. And without the hassle of hauling extra lenses. The Model iii is an excellent camera but upgrading to the iv was worth it to me for the quicker autofocus.

    One camera that does it all - and very well!

    At age 77, dragging around a DSLR camera with a heavy 100-400mm lens (for wildlife photography) was getting to be too much. The RX10iv solved this problem and I'm back to getting great bird shots - that 600mm equivalent reach is really nice..

    This will also be a super travel camera, once we get past this virus problem. Looking forward to that.

    Overall, I am very pleased with this camera and the excellent results it produces.

    Great camera.

    Camera has a real good hand grip for your right hand. Auto focus is fast, pictures turn out sharp. That 600mm lens comes in handy! A lot of times subjects change & you just don’t have time to change lenses. RX10 Mark 4 is my only camera. I take photos of sunsets, Deer & at Church to mention a few. This camera is really not that heavy for a 600mm lens. I’m not a professional, just an advanced amateur. Very happy with this camera!

    Excellent

    This is the best camera I have ever owned. I am an original bridge camera guy and I started shooting the Panasonic Fz-200, then I went to the 300. . These camera’s were great but I bought this one after reading 9000 reviews and it works the best. I bought a book to help me as I continue to take fantastic photos and just getting into the video end of it, but I will say that nothing. Ones close to this camera unless you want to spend $ 5000.00

    and still change a lot of glass!

    Finest all in one camera available

    I have shot DSLRs and ILCs for years, but have also sought out long zoom all in ones for travel and quick shots. Most have been disappointing, with either good quality but short zooms or long zooms but low iq, until I tried the Sony. It takes phenomenal pictures at both ends and is a joy to use. My Fuji XT2 is jealous since I rarely shoot with her anymore.

    A lot to offer for point and shoot

    I've only begun learning all this camera has to offer. My Canon SX60 lens got damaged and I wanted another bridge camera but a bigger sensor. I sometimes miss the longer zoom for nature photos, but the image quality is much better with this camera. It's heavier but worth it to me. Video is amazing.

    Neat Camera

    I bought this camera for my sister's birthday and she really likes it. To be honest, the camera is pretty pricey; however, my sister takes it around with her everywhere, so I am not worried about her forgetting about it.

    When it comes to shipping, the camera came in perfect condition. Extra note is that this camera does not come with film.

    Great entry level camera for amateur photographers

    In depth review. I absolutely love this camera. Was just what I wanted for taking pictures of birds at feeder. One thing I would suggest would be to go and watch some videos to make some very basic setting changes to get you off auto settings. The pictures are amazing and camera was easy to set up. I love the remote feature with the android app. You can transfer photos and my favorite part is you can take picture remotely. I have certain birds that are more skittish so I set up camera and took pictures from inside. Was able to get some great action shots by adjusting shutter speed and using continuous shooting mode. Image stabilization works great for handheld shots. 50X zoom gets you close to the action. The negatives would be that, especially with wifi on, it will go through batteries faster so buy some extras. Another is that wifi signal from camera for remote shooting is limited to about 7 or 8 yards. If using to just keep camera steady that isn't an issue. One last negative would be that you have to take camera off tripod to change battery. I haven't done videos so can't say how good that is.

    Best point and shoot I ever own.

    This camera it's awesome. Mind blowing. I first bought the Canon sx730 hs because of the long zoom and the tilting screen. But the quality of the pictures doesn't compete with this camera. It's incredible the differenss between the 2/3 sensor on the sx730 hs to de 1" sensor on this one. The clarity and details are superb on de canon g9 x. It's almost as good as my canon t4i but much smaller. The zoom it's not that bad, it works for me. Great camera.

    I absolutely love this camera. I have been looking for a new camera for awhile now since my canon powershot 400sx is stopped working out the middle of no where. Originally I was going to go for the g7x but they are out of stock everywhere. I love the quality of this camera. My YouTube videos are now a little more crispier. The only drawback to this camera is no flip out screen as I can’t see myself so it’s hard to know if I’m in frame or not lol. Anywho, great camera for the price. I love it entirely.

    Early yet good so far

    I got this real quick that's for sure...like two days so that was a good start on Best Buys part. I got this mostly because my S95 went for an unintended swim and I have a trip coming up so I want better pictures than my lame phone will take. So far...in a couple of weeks the camera is taking fantastic pictures...mainly of the point and shoot kind. I don't mind that one has to take a bit of time to get good shots but reading reviews people post who obviously didn't bother to read sentence one of the manual can be a head shaker..I was very pleased seeing the paper book manual opening up the package because that CD ROM they were substituting for a manual for a while just wasn't for me. Like it so far..time will tell

  • Review by InlandPNWShooter, 10 out of 10
    Great camera with only a few limitations

    This camera is currently available for $399 USD, which makes it hands down the best value in compact cameras right now. Sometimes I don't want to pack along my bigger Fuji system with multiple lenses, so I just bring this along instead. It doesn't disappoint. JPEG images look great straight out of the camera. Or, if you don't mind getting your hands dirty and messing with a RAW file, you've got that option as well. Take some time to dig through the menus to see what options are available to you. The in-camera HDR processor is surprisingly effective. I also use the time lapse video feature as well. Images are reasonably sharp, probably more than I would expect in a camera like this. And certainly more than sharp enough for web use.

    Physically, it's small and somewhat weighty due to its metal construction. It just feels sturdy. Power up is quick; just the amount of time it takes for the lens to extend out of its housing. I've used the Canon phone app to transfer photos to my Android device, and it works like a champ.

    Just know what this camera is good for. You'll get nice shots of your kids indoor birthday party, but probably not of their indoor sports. You don't get much reach with the lens, so you might want to move up to the G7XmkII if you need longer zoom. I'm finding that it's great for travel/nature/landscape work, and an occasional street scene that I might come across.

    If you just choose this as your only stand-alone camera, I think you're making a good choice. Take some time to learn it and to understand what it can and can't do, and you should get years of great images.

    cute

    honestly, i bought this camera because it had wifi and good reviews from professional photographers, oh, and it is cute. i wanted something handheld for being a tourist and something that had the latest tech savy stuff. i find that the features are nice too. when you decide to video, you dont have to switch the mode. The only downside---is definitely buy an extra battery. the battery only lasts a half day when used constantly on a voyage. I also use a 2 gb or larger memory card and havent needed to unload. i also am not using the handstrap that came with it. i had a long one that i put on that go can go around my neck or adjust to a handstrap which is helpful to where as a sling around my neck and one arm; it is very concealed this way cuz of the size too.

    Great small camera

    I bought this camera to use when walking around and to take with me when I didn’t want a larger camera. My first real test of this camera was at a baseball game which started with sun and finished after dark. During the game I wanted to get the players in action and finally settled on the batters. Once I got the settings right I was able to get many “action” shots where the batter was swinging at the ball. All of the keepers included the ball in the shot including a home run with the ball only a few feet off the bat! The ball was blurred but the batter, the catcher and the umpire were all in focus. I was setting about 200 feet from home plate. Overall very impressed with the results!

    Small and powerful camera.

    I have used the camera primarily outdoors and recently took it on a fly fishing trip to Canada. I used it mostly on the 'auto' settings for both pictures and some video. Results were crisp with good natural color. Battery life was good and it was easy to send the photos to both my iPhone and iPad.

    I love this camera!

    I did not realize how much I love this camera. This camera has the technology of the Sony a7. The quality and clarity are absolutely superb especially in this tiny package. I usually shoot with my Panasonic Lumix G7. But when I'm traveling or just want to take something small then the Sony RX100 VI is perfect. With its 1 inch sensor I don't have to sacrifice quality.

    Four stars still makes a winner

    Four stars as this compact is expensive give the price and features offered by competitors. I do like this better than the earlier Sony RX100 models, as it has a longer zoom range so in all it is a more flexible compact camera. It is very compact so it might be hard to stabilize it when hand holding it. I use a table to tripod so if I want to hand hold it I have some way of holding it. Also a handy feature is controlling the shutter with my iphone via a view that the camera has.

    Like having an SLR in your pocket!

    I bought this camera for the Kiss Kruise as I was told you could not use detachable lens cameras to shoot the bands. With an OPTICAL zoom to 200mm and a 2.8 F stop this camera seemed the best way to go. I shoots VERY nice pictures, almost the quality of my Nikon D3, and it's much easier to live with in its super compact size.

    I have included two photos I took with it, one at full size, and one at max zoom.

    Best family/travel camera

    I love this camera! I’ve been doing photography for a few years now and having a DSLR, I never like to bring it around for family trips or vacations. I wanted this because of its portability. Not only can I just put it in my pocket, the quality is beautiful! Sure you can use the auto setting and still yield quality photography but you have the flexibility to also dial in the camera which is awesome! The built in zoom is amazing and when used properly gives some pretty expressive photo’s I would highly recommend this for everyone. Capturing family moments, traveling, a night out with friends, sports events, anything! It’s less invasive and won’t attract attention while out and about. Sure it’s pricey but I think I’m getting my money worth!

    Not a camera for a beginner;suited to semi-pro.

    This camera requires many hours of use and much experimentation to be appreciated. The flexibility and potential diverse shooting, processing, communicating (sharing) and operational settings offered require a great deal of research and practice to be fully realized. I've never seen so much potential in such a small camera. Amateurs should be prepared to invest time for appreciation.

    Enjoy the camera

    I like the camera how they simple things down is truly nice For someone that doesn’t know how to manually control cameras like a professional definitely has features that Does make it a bit special then others. I bought it and tried and it gave me what I was looking for. Don’t go just for opinion of YouTube buy it if you dk t like it return it. There’s nothing better then you actually have it and put it to use would I recommend it yes!, o lot of people say is not worth it because of the pricing but read the specs and compare it to other cameras and see if it’s worth it to you

    Content I make, Make I content - Millennial

    I'm at a loss for words. So i'm this kind of indecisive person. I want the canon g7x mark iii then im like hmmm i havent tried sony. crossed reviews for weeks and could not come up with an answer.

    until i read a comment that said JUST DO IT.

    so like the programmed mind tends to do, OBEY.

    I got it at a low price since the charger was missing but flex for me I unknowning had a charger at home and i could just use the usb if if i really had to.

    still testing out the camera.

    this review was based on the experience.

    It's okay if you don't have the money to buy the full brand new one. I took the chance and ended up getting a good deal.

    I'm starting to like going to BB versus that other place online.

    Support your locale brick and motars! we need them! where else are you going to get the best buy? my whole childhood would be ruined

    Thinking of buying it? JUST DO IT.

    First of all I just want to say after so long wanting this camera and debating for so long to purchase is it! I am the happiest of people after purchasing it. The quality of it is AMAZING! It’s honestly perfect for someone who’s some what on a budget and getting started with making videos, etc. But don’t get it twisted this camera is also perfect for photos!!!! All around the best purchase ever. I also did go ahead and purchase extra equipment (as seen in the photo) for my camera but it’s so worth it!

    Not just only a vlogging camera.

    This camera is a beast of a camera for a “point and shoot camera” category. Having myself a Sony A7RIII and a RX100 VII this ZV-1 camera does not disappoint. Since this camera is very similar to the RX100 I may be comparing in this review one which each other. But first I want to thank Sony for providing a camera with fully articulated screen (Sony please provide this for all your future cameras for now on). For the money you are paying, this camera has the auto focus system of their most expensive full frame cameras which is the best in the market in my opinion. The camera body is made of plastic but does not look or feel cheap. It did not come with a wrist strap I know many people do not use them but for this type of camera that is very small I recommend buying one and use it.

    This camera was design for vloggers in mind now with the fully articulated screen is better to record yourself. There are a few drawbacks regarding the screen. First you cannot see the screen if you are using polarized sunglasses. If you are going to record yourself using this camera, make sure you are using non-polarized sunglasses. The screen like all Sony screens for all their cameras is a touch screen that only works for focus, and focus tracking. It does not work to navigate thru menus (I hope that Sony implements menu navigation using the touch screen in future generations).

    The ZV-1 camera offers some nice features for vlogging:

    1. Skin tone feature, this will smooth your skin of your face to reduce wrinkles.

    2. It has a built-in neutral density filter to reduce the amount of light hitting the sensor during video if you are recording outside. With this you shall be able to reduce the shutter speed.

    3. Background Bokeh option will soft blur the background while maintaining your face in focus. It has a dedicated button for this; however, you can achieve this by using the lens at 24mm at F1.8 aperture.

    4. Product Showcase, if you review products on YouTube this camera will certainly is a most for you. This feature will quickly focus on the product if you locate the product in front of the camera. Long gone are the days when you put a product in front of the camera and have to say, “lets wait for the camera to focus on this”. This feature work fast and smooth is impressive. One thing to mention is that when I was testing this the eye autofocus no longer works, it transitions to face autofocus. Also, make sure when you use this feature the camera focus at your face all the time if for some reason when you are recording yourself and the camera see your hands while you are doing expressions the camera will try to focus at your hands because your hands are closer to the camera than your face.

    5. It comes with picture profiles in case you want to adjust colors in post I usually do not use this but is there if you want to use it.

    6. Records in 1080p 24fps, 30 fps, 60 fps, 120 fps also records at 4K, 24fps and 30 fps.

    7. It comes with a microphone input jack in case you want to use your own microphone for audio. The in-camera audio I believe is pretty good in my opinion. The camera came with a dead cat microphone cover that you attach to the camera hot shoe to reduce wind noise if you are recording outside.

    8. Image stabilization.

    I know there is more to vlogging for this camera. The list is long but those are some of the main features of this camera offers. If you are going to use this camera mostly for vlogging I recommend the “Sony Vlogger Accessory Kit, product# ACCVC1”.

    Now, what about the photography aspect of this camera in case you are wondering if it is good for it.

    This camera comes with a 20.1 Megapixel 1” sensor, similar to the RX100 series. The lens is a 9.4-25.7mm which is 24-70mm equivalent in full frame, with an aperture of F1.8 / 2.8. You can only use the F1.8 aperture only at 24mm equivalent. More than 24mm it will transition to F2.8 aperture which is typical for zoom lens. Sony said that the color science has been improved in this camera compared to previous generations. From what I saw there is a difference but to me is minimal, to me the colors on Sony latest cameras are great.

    You have the option to save pictures as RAW and/or JPG. If you are a person that want to take advantage of all the quality and dynamic range that the sensor can give you use RAW format, if you want a quick picture you can share with friends use JPG format. You also have the option to save both formats to the SD CARD. RAW format is an unprocessed file (more like a develop negative from the old film days) and you need a RAW file editor program to process them, this can be Photoshop, Lightroom etc. I usually edit all my RAW pictures using CaptureOne Pro. At the time of this review the RAW format for the Sony ZV-1 was not supported. It usually takes a few months for CaptureOne to provide support for new cameras. This is typical, but if the sensor is like my RX100VII the dynamic range shall be pretty good. Not as good as full frame but very close to APC sensor cameras.

    I’m pretty pleased with the quality of the pictures I got with this camera. While testing the camera I took a picture that I really liked and printed a 12” x 16” on my Canon Pixma Pro 10. See picture sample. The detail is there, I am pretty happy with the results of the print, and I am going to hang it in the wall.

    Regarding low light performance I will say is ok. Anything above 1600 ISO is going to look a little bit noisy. However, having a F1.8 aperture at 24mm always helps.

    The only drawbacks that I experience regarding photos is that to see the screen in direct sunlight you must set the screen brightness to “sunny weather”. Having an electronic viewfinder would be better for taking pictures under direct sunlight which this camera does not have. My RX100VII have an electronic viewfinder however the RX100VII does not have a hot shoe for a flash which the ZV-1 has. I was wondering if Sony will provide in the future an optional electronic viewfinder that you can connect to the hot shoe like the Canon M6 Mark II. That would make a lot of people happy. The lack of a viewfinder would not affect the picture quality of the photos but would give you more flexibility and a would make it easier to take pictures under certain situations.

    Regarding battery life make sure you buy a few extra batteries because the battery wont last long. It will consume more battery during video than with pictures in my opinion. My recommendation is to always go with original batteries from Sony. The camera did not come with an external battery charger, to charge the battery, the camera came with a micro USB cable that you connect to the camera and charge the battery internally. Sony also sells an external battery charger if you are interested.

    Conclusion, the ZV-1 is an excellent camera for vlogging but not just for vlogging it can also create great looking photos under good lighting conditions. It has one of the most advanced autofocus systems in the planet. Its small, lightweight, and very versatile. I definitively recommend this product.

    Sony ZV-1 camera system

    Sony Digital Camera ZV-1 with Sony GP-VPT2BT Bluetooth remote/tripod.

    The Sony ZV-1 along with the Sony GP-VPT2BT is ideal for Vloggers and other context makers. This camera system is equipped to transfer your movies to your telephone, computer. The excellent quality of video and sound make this system a must have for Vloggers. The 20.1 Mega pixel pictures are top notch. The 24-70 MM zoom is minimal, would have liked to have 150 or higher max zoom level.

    The camera is completely adjustable; however, you would need to go online and download the large PDF file and read through it. I did not have any problems setting up the camera and taking movies and pictures.

    The Sony GP-VPT2BT is a must have accessory. This unit comes with a button battery. Set up is easy following the enclosed directions. The remote also opens to a tripod. The remote has an on/off switch. You can push a button and turn the camera around 360 degrees. With a push of another button you can tilt the camera up and down. There is a movie button and a photo button. You also get a rocker switch for zoom.

    The Sony ZV-1 does not come with a carrying strap or bag.

    I would recommend this camera to family and friend.

    It’s like a Mini Canon 5D with wifi

    I was looking for a small handheld camera to take on adventures, with out having to lug around my canon 5D mark iii, as it’s way to heavy. This camera reminded me of a mini 5D with WiFi, the quality is by far better than I imagined. See my test shot of the moon standing in my living room last night, taken on auto mod. then I zoomed in & wow the photo speaks for itself. The WiFi set up with my iPhone 11 pro was very easy to set up & I love the easy access to transfer photos from the camera to the phone. I highly recommend regardless if you have any experience or not this camera will have you shooting photos like a pro.

    Big bang for your bucks!!

    I bought this camera ahead of a once-in-a-lifetime vacation. Back in the day, I used a film SLR, digital SLR, and eventually a Canon SX10IS. For personal reasons, I didn't want to bring something even that big along. I'm SO happy I didn't! The zoom on this baby is incredible! Quick video! So light, and intuitive to figure out without needing to refer to the quick start guide. And my pictures and videos were AWESOME! My dad, who fancies himself a semi-pro, and carried all of his big gear and lenses around, was a wee bit envious of how quickly I could get a shot just as good, if not BETTER than his! I think my zoom was better than anything he had with him! ;)

    *I loved*: size, weight, instructions on screen for various features, movable screen (to see better in glare situations, or for selfies!)

    *Meh*: wrist strap is so long that it's practically non-functional (I had to swap with another device I had for fear of dropping camera), screen location seems like it might get scratched and camera is hard to hold without getting your fingers all over it (my SX10IS has a screen that opens up + a viewfinder), wi-fi capabilities are quite cumbersome/slow and I haven't found a way to send just one photo instead of dumping them all (Admittedly, I have not yet paired my smartphone with the camera, so maybe that's different.)

    Overall, it was an important part of my wonderful vacation, and I'm looking forward to continuing to use it in my everyday creative life!

    Polaroid Now i-Type Camera The Mandalorian Edition
    Description

    Bring the Disney+ series home with The MandalorianTM Edition Polaroid Now analog instant camera. Polaroid’s new point-and-shoot camera with autofocus, double exposure, self-timer, and a more accurate flash wrapped in the colors and iconic characters from the latest Star Wars franchise.

    5 Features
  • Polaroid Now i-Type Camera The Mandalorian Edition: Polaroid’s new point-and-shoot camera with autofocus, double exposure, self-timer, and a more accurate flash wrapped in the colors and iconic characters from the latest Star Wars franchise.
  • Shoot with the light: The more light in your shot, the better your photo will turn out. Instant film loves light, especially natural light. Use the flash for all your indoor photos. For best results we also recommend using the flash for outdoor shots, unless it’s a bright sunny day.
  • Develop in the dark: All photos appear blank at first. They’re most sensitive during this time, so don’t bend or shake them. Shield them from the light, and place them face down as they develop. Keep B&W photos shielded from light for about 1 minute, and color film for about 6 minutes.
  • Care for your camera: Your camera has a set of rollers inside the film door. Each photo passes through these rollers as it’s made, so it’s important to make sure that they stay clean. If the rollers get visibly dirty then gently wipe them down with a soft, damp cloth.
  • Shutter System: Custom design, using precision step motor for shutter

    Great Quality, Photos are as expected, Easy to use

    I absolutely adore this camera! Very easy to use, came with instructions on how to load the cartridges and change the focus! It also came with the charger and a neck strap. The quality is slightly better in color than the original polaroids (to be expected) and the develop time takes a bit longer, make sure your subject is still, not very good for moving subjects (as to be expected). Weight is light but feels sturdy, the grip is not awkward but rather comfortable. Great for any beginner or one who enjoys the novelty of a physical print.

    Satisfied My Needs

    Very nice camera, I like the way it is reminiscent of the older Polaroid cameras. I wanted a darker coloured camera, so I chose the Mandalorian edition one. I was also pleasantly surprised by the quote on the bottom of the camera. I have no regrets from purchasing this camera.

    The Polaroid now is a easy camera to start on with detailed instructions, a long internal battery life, as well as the Itype film being slightly cheaper

    Even Better Than I Expected

    I will be completely honest here. I bought this thinking I would try it out and return it after my trip. I went to France for two weeks with this camera and my Nikon D750. I wound up using my Nikon 3 times for astrophotography and every other time I used the Sony. I decided to keep the camera and sell my A6000 which is what I was previously using as a travel camera. When using the kit lens on the A6000 I couldn't tell the difference in the quality between the A6000 and the RX100 III. Sony has yet to make any good lenses for that camera without going to the full-frame E mount lenses. The only improvements for my photography for this camera would be to add more magnification to the viewfinder and to not have the camera shut off when closing the viewfinder. (The latter has been corrected with the Mark V version for 500$ more.) I did add the handgrip which really made the camera handling so much better than the smooth front. I think the M5 version also has this built in now. I picked up two extra Sony batteries a charger and a screen cover and this is now my go to camera for holidays and day to day shooting. A fantastic addition to a DSLR or the perfect camera for someone who just wants to take really nice travel pictures.

    PS. Since I said I was going to be completely honest I will admit to you that after the first day of shooting in full manual in constantly changing light as I went in and out of chateaus I wound up switching to full auto and with VERY few exception of tough lighting all the pictures came out amazing.

    Still learning but so far so good

    I’m a novice that has been wanting a real camera (not just my phone). Since I don’t really know what I’m doing and wanted something compact, I decided on this Sony camera. From my experience so far it’s a great camera that produces excellent images. I’m still learning about all the settings and how to enable my phone to act as a remote control for the camera (the app isn’t user friendly in my opinion). I would buy it again.

    Sony RX100M

    I had heard great things about this camera and all of the positive reviews are true and than some. The quality of the pictures are excellent as is the build of this camera. I would not hesitate to tell anyone to buy this camera if they are looking for a small point and shoot with DSLR quality.

    And the video is also really good. I was able to start shooting immediately with little setup or thumbing through the manual. I am now a Sony convert for sure!!!

  • Review by English, 10 out of 10
    All the hype is true. It's an amazing camera.

    I'm a very keen landscape photographer. I usually use digital SLR cameras with all the associated paraphernalia, lenses and filters.

    Some time back, I started looking into using smaller cameras as carrying about all the DSLR gear was getting old. For a few years, I have been using a Canon G11, which is a great camera, but not quite up to the quality attainable from my DSLR.

    When the RX100M2 came out, I was very interested because the reviews were so good. Sadly, it had no kind of viewfinder which, for me, is a requirement. I really don't like holding the camera out in front of me, trying to compose with a washed-out monitor in the sunlight.

    When the RX100M3 came out, I was excited to see that they had added an electronic viewfinder, so, after much research, decided to give it a go. I figured that I could always return it within the return period if I didn't like it. It is, after all, a very expensive camera for a compact.

    From the very first shot taken with this, I was amazed at the quality, and I remain amazed having taken 1,110 shots with it so far.

    As an example, yesterday I took this camera, and my Nikon D7000 DSLR to the same location, and shot with both side-by-side. Loading the files onto my computer when I got home, I really could see no discernible difference between the quality of the shots from the Nikon, and this little Sony. In fact, all the shots that I ultimately used turned out to be from the Sony!

    Of course, everybody's requirements in a camera differ, but I will outline some of the facets of this camera, and what makes it such an ideal camera for me:

    Lens: As stated before, the quality of this camera is superb, and the lens has to take quite a large amount of credit for this. For some, they may find that it only going out to is a problem. Being a landscape photographer, I was more interested in the wide end, and was very pleased to see that Sony had widened it from 28mm in the previous models to 24mm in this model. This end of the range is far more important to me than telephoto. Of course, 70mm at the wide end may not be enough for some people -- possibly if you are intending to shoot wildlife or sports. In that case, you may be better served by one of the long-zoom bridge cameras. They will, of course, not have the image quality that this little Sony has.

    It is a fast lens, being F1.8 to F2.8, although be aware that the F1.8 is only really available at the widest end. Still, F2.8 at 70mm is fine for me.

    Handling: Make no mistake, this is a very small camera. This is, of course, a great asset, but it may seem a little "fiddly" if you are used to bigger DSLRs. I personally don't find it too "fiddly" to use, although you will have to get used to the fact that there are limited dedicated buttons so, for things like exposure compensation and other common adjustments, you will have to delve into the menus. This is actually made easier because there is a user-assignable bank of twelve settings that are easily reached from the dedicated function button. This makes on-the-fly adjustments quite easy to achieve with the minimum of fuss.

    Viewfinder: For me, this is the real high-point of this camera. It is small, but bright and easy to see. I find it more than acceptable to use it to fully compose my shots. Indeed, it is my preferred method of using this camera.

    I did, incidentally, find that this camera solved a real problem for me that I didn't anticipate. Being a relatively new eyeglass wearer, I always struggle with how to use my glassed when shooting. Do I adjust the dioptre for clear viewing with my glasses on? The trouble with that is that it means I can't shut out enough light at the viewfinder because my glasses are in between. Also, because you can't get your eye near enough to the viewfinder, you have trouble seeing the whole image and have to shift around to see all parts in the viewfinder. Alternatively, do I adjust the dioptre to be able to see clearly without my glasses? The trouble with that is that I can then not "chimp", or look at the shot on the monitor without putting my glasses back on. It's a real pain. It turns out that this little Sony solves that problem for me. Because the viewfinder gives you exactly the same information that is available on the monitor, I adjust the dioptre so that I can see clearly without glasses, and just use the viewfinder to see the last shot, check on the histogram, adjust settings. In essence, I don't use my glasses with this camera. This works out perfectly for me, and is something that is not possible to do with a DSLR without EVF.

    The built-in neutral density filter is a very welcome addition that I use very frequently, and I have added a filter adaptor from LensBaby which allows me to use a 52mm polarising filter.

    There are lots of extra gadgets and features on this camera -- most of which I don't use. Mostly in the automatic modes and HDR, etc. Most of these don't interest me. I hear the video is supposed to be class-leading although video is also something that doesn't concern me.

    If I search for some negatives about this camera, they are slight and well worth the compromise in my opinion.

    I find it tends to blowing out the highlights. It is quite rare for me to take a shot where I haven't dialled in -.3 to -1.5 exposure compensation. I think that's just the price you pay for a camera which has to cater to the casual user. They lean towards a more brightly exposed shot overall at the risk of blowing highlights. No big deal.

    There is no facility for remote shutter release, so I use the two-second timer most of the time when I have the camera on a tripod. I was quite disappointed to find that it was impossible to use the self-timer on most of the automatic modes or, more crucially, when using exposure bracketing. There is no point in exposure bracketing if you're going to be shaking the camera around when pressing the shutter manually! Oh well. Can't have it all.

    Overall, as you can tell, I love this little camera. I really feel now that I can carry this camera around (especially as I do most of my photography travel on a motorcycle), and not feel as if I'm compromising on image quality for the sake of portability.

    There's an old saying in photography that the best camera is the one that you have with you. Never has this been more true. It's always with me, plus it really is the best camera!

    The best camera is the one you will have with you!

    Great Little Camera, Fantastic Picture Quality.

    This is my second RX100 and I still love the line. I sold my RX-IV for 80% of what I paid for it. These things hold their value.

    Here is my thought, if it is too large to pocket then I don’t care how good the camera is, it will probably sit at home or at the hotel. I don’t want to be bogged down with lenses and so on.

    Fortunately, this is also a great camera, and high quality all in a tiny package. For this version (VA) you sacrifice a longer zoom lens for a faster lens in low light (compared to the VI or VII). Add to it the fact you can take 1080P or 4K videos and you have a fantastic all around shooter.

    I was recently on a cruise with a professional photographer. He had a giant camera, but he (and his wife) also had an RX-III and RX V. Guess what, 90% of the time we were together they were using the RX instead of the giant SLR camera.

    I added to this a 52mm lens adapter and lenses for UV and a Variable ND filter.

    I have some very minor nits that may or may not bug you.

    4K video is limited to 5 minutes.

    1080P video is limited to 30 minutes.

    No external microphone jack.

    Otherwise I 100% love it.

    At a recent concert in Vienna, I had to record in 1080P and had to constantly check when the 30 minutes ran out, wait for the camera to cool down, then restart the recording.

    Again, not the end of the world.

    I highly recommend this. If you don’t care about ultra low light, then look at the VI or VII. They are both very capable, just not as sensitive.

    Great camera, a little flimsy though

    The flash that pops up is fine, but the viewfinder is a bit flimsy. Already going towards the left, so that’s not fun.

    Definitely not a very easy point and shoot to use if you don’t know manual controls. It will look washed out at first out of the box. Be patient with it and once you do a new toy around with profiles and color enhancements it looks incredible

    Keep in mind, this isn’t going to have phone stabilization for video quality. However if you get past that, the video quality is incredible!

    Portable Performance

    This is my third model in the RX-100 series (I, III, and V). Purchased because I want a full function camera where you have complete command of appetite, shutter speed, white balance etc. The electronic viewfinder and manual focus option are optimal for composition. Prefer the V to the VII because of sharper picture quality and generally don't need the extra zoom.

    My RX-100 III is starting to have issues after 3 years of serious use. This model in general is delicate. You get a ton of performance and because its so portable wear and tear adds up; unless you are ultra careful.

    This is a camera for someone who desires extreme portability, functionality, and takes a lot of phots. You can't bet it but you can break it.

    Perfect travel camera! Legit Photo & 4K Video!

    This camera is small but photos + videos are LEGIT! The quality of the two plus it's small form factor seriously make it a traveler's dream camera. I do want to disclose that I am a Sony ambassador and was given the RX100V for review, but I also want to state that I don't just review anything. This camera has been on my wishlist for a while! For video it has a drop in ND filter which is perfect for taking video with the wide apertures of f/1.8 - f/2.8 this camera offers. Another nice video and photo feature is the image stabilization! I have shaky hands and appreciate this so much. For vloggers or videographers in general this camera also can shoot 4k! I use this camera for BTS video and will soon use it for vlogging too since it has a very convenient flip screen so I can see myself and frame the shot. Literally the only negative thing I can say about this camera is the battery life however if you use a power pack for your phone like I do you can use it on this camera! Seriously can't wait to use this camera at my next shoot and when I travel.

    all around best point and shoot

    before using this camera, i didn't really believe that a point and shoot could add much to my inventory on video or photo shoots..i was wrong..this rx100vA packs such a punch. Strong video resolution with a solid bitrate, multiple smart auto modes for beginners and my favorite thing has to be the HFR burst mode..some of the slow mo shots at 480 and 960fps are literally impossible to get on my a7sii. sony gifted me this camera as i am a member of the alpha collective, and i didn't know how much i needed this thing until i started shooting with it. It also doesn't hurt that the form factor is absolutely tiny. i would recommend this camera for a beginner. it has all the features that allows a shooter to learn as they go and vastly improve the quality of the video they shoot.

    Each model keeps getting better

    The VA is a great camera, and even though it was released after the version VI, it does not have all the updated components the VI has. It is basically a very mildly refreshed version V from 2015.

    Excellent camera for the size!

    As a professional photographer, I mainly use a full frame camera with big fancy lenses for most of my work. With that said, I am absolutely BLOWN AWAY by the quality of this little camera after having used it for some time. Don't let its size fool you, this thing packs a punch. With its 1 inch sensor and fast aperture, you can get stunning images out of this camera that can rival more expensive interchangeable lens options. Of course it'll never be able to give you the same depth of field or low light capabilities of a full frame camera but that's not what its meant for. As a camera that I can take anywhere without having to sacrifice quality, it certainly does the job. I am a Sony Ambassador and have received this camera as a gift from Sony, but this camera has been on my wish list for a while. I'll definitely be taking it with me on more travel and hiking trips especially on longer backpacking treks where weight matters or just walking down the street where I need to be more discreet. To summarize, if you want something much better than your phone's camera but don't want to haul around a bunch of lenses and a body, there's nothing better than the rx100!

    Even Better Than I Expected

    I will be completely honest here. I bought this thinking I would try it out and return it after my trip. I went to France for two weeks with this camera and my Nikon D750. I wound up using my Nikon 3 times for astrophotography and every other time I used the Sony. I decided to keep the camera and sell my A6000 which is what I was previously using as a travel camera. When using the kit lens on the A6000 I couldn't tell the difference in the quality between the A6000 and the RX100 III. Sony has yet to make any good lenses for that camera without going to the full-frame E mount lenses. The only improvements for my photography for this camera would be to add more magnification to the viewfinder and to not have the camera shut off when closing the viewfinder. (The latter has been corrected with the Mark V version for 500$ more.) I did add the handgrip which really made the camera handling so much better than the smooth front. I think the M5 version also has this built in now. I picked up two extra Sony batteries a charger and a screen cover and this is now my go to camera for holidays and day to day shooting. A fantastic addition to a DSLR or the perfect camera for someone who just wants to take really nice travel pictures.

    PS. Since I said I was going to be completely honest I will admit to you that after the first day of shooting in full manual in constantly changing light as I went in and out of chateaus I wound up switching to full auto and with VERY few exception of tough lighting all the pictures came out amazing.

    Still learning but so far so good

    I’m a novice that has been wanting a real camera (not just my phone). Since I don’t really know what I’m doing and wanted something compact, I decided on this Sony camera. From my experience so far it’s a great camera that produces excellent images. I’m still learning about all the settings and how to enable my phone to act as a remote control for the camera (the app isn’t user friendly in my opinion). I would buy it again.

    Sony RX100M

    I had heard great things about this camera and all of the positive reviews are true and than some. The quality of the pictures are excellent as is the build of this camera. I would not hesitate to tell anyone to buy this camera if they are looking for a small point and shoot with DSLR quality.

    And the video is also really good. I was able to start shooting immediately with little setup or thumbing through the manual. I am now a Sony convert for sure!!!

    All the hype is true. It's an amazing camera.

    I'm a very keen landscape photographer. I usually use digital SLR cameras with all the associated paraphernalia, lenses and filters.

    Some time back, I started looking into using smaller cameras as carrying about all the DSLR gear was getting old. For a few years, I have been using a Canon G11, which is a great camera, but not quite up to the quality attainable from my DSLR.

    When the RX100M2 came out, I was very interested because the reviews were so good. Sadly, it had no kind of viewfinder which, for me, is a requirement. I really don't like holding the camera out in front of me, trying to compose with a washed-out monitor in the sunlight.

    When the RX100M3 came out, I was excited to see that they had added an electronic viewfinder, so, after much research, decided to give it a go. I figured that I could always return it within the return period if I didn't like it. It is, after all, a very expensive camera for a compact.

    From the very first shot taken with this, I was amazed at the quality, and I remain amazed having taken 1,110 shots with it so far.

    As an example, yesterday I took this camera, and my Nikon D7000 DSLR to the same location, and shot with both side-by-side. Loading the files onto my computer when I got home, I really could see no discernible difference between the quality of the shots from the Nikon, and this little Sony. In fact, all the shots that I ultimately used turned out to be from the Sony!

    Of course, everybody's requirements in a camera differ, but I will outline some of the facets of this camera, and what makes it such an ideal camera for me:

    Lens: As stated before, the quality of this camera is superb, and the lens has to take quite a large amount of credit for this. For some, they may find that it only going out to is a problem. Being a landscape photographer, I was more interested in the wide end, and was very pleased to see that Sony had widened it from 28mm in the previous models to 24mm in this model. This end of the range is far more important to me than telephoto. Of course, 70mm at the wide end may not be enough for some people -- possibly if you are intending to shoot wildlife or sports. In that case, you may be better served by one of the long-zoom bridge cameras. They will, of course, not have the image quality that this little Sony has.

    It is a fast lens, being F1.8 to F2.8, although be aware that the F1.8 is only really available at the widest end. Still, F2.8 at 70mm is fine for me.

    Handling: Make no mistake, this is a very small camera. This is, of course, a great asset, but it may seem a little "fiddly" if you are used to bigger DSLRs. I personally don't find it too "fiddly" to use, although you will have to get used to the fact that there are limited dedicated buttons so, for things like exposure compensation and other common adjustments, you will have to delve into the menus. This is actually made easier because there is a user-assignable bank of twelve settings that are easily reached from the dedicated function button. This makes on-the-fly adjustments quite easy to achieve with the minimum of fuss.

    Viewfinder: For me, this is the real high-point of this camera. It is small, but bright and easy to see. I find it more than acceptable to use it to fully compose my shots. Indeed, it is my preferred method of using this camera.

    I did, incidentally, find that this camera solved a real problem for me that I didn't anticipate. Being a relatively new eyeglass wearer, I always struggle with how to use my glassed when shooting. Do I adjust the dioptre for clear viewing with my glasses on? The trouble with that is that it means I can't shut out enough light at the viewfinder because my glasses are in between. Also, because you can't get your eye near enough to the viewfinder, you have trouble seeing the whole image and have to shift around to see all parts in the viewfinder. Alternatively, do I adjust the dioptre to be able to see clearly without my glasses? The trouble with that is that I can then not "chimp", or look at the shot on the monitor without putting my glasses back on. It's a real pain. It turns out that this little Sony solves that problem for me. Because the viewfinder gives you exactly the same information that is available on the monitor, I adjust the dioptre so that I can see clearly without glasses, and just use the viewfinder to see the last shot, check on the histogram, adjust settings. In essence, I don't use my glasses with this camera. This works out perfectly for me, and is something that is not possible to do with a DSLR without EVF.

    The built-in neutral density filter is a very welcome addition that I use very frequently, and I have added a filter adaptor from LensBaby which allows me to use a 52mm polarising filter.

    There are lots of extra gadgets and features on this camera -- most of which I don't use. Mostly in the automatic modes and HDR, etc. Most of these don't interest me. I hear the video is supposed to be class-leading although video is also something that doesn't concern me.

    If I search for some negatives about this camera, they are slight and well worth the compromise in my opinion.

    I find it tends to blowing out the highlights. It is quite rare for me to take a shot where I haven't dialled in -.3 to -1.5 exposure compensation. I think that's just the price you pay for a camera which has to cater to the casual user. They lean towards a more brightly exposed shot overall at the risk of blowing highlights. No big deal.

    There is no facility for remote shutter release, so I use the two-second timer most of the time when I have the camera on a tripod. I was quite disappointed to find that it was impossible to use the self-timer on most of the automatic modes or, more crucially, when using exposure bracketing. There is no point in exposure bracketing if you're going to be shaking the camera around when pressing the shutter manually! Oh well. Can't have it all.

    Overall, as you can tell, I love this little camera. I really feel now that I can carry this camera around (especially as I do most of my photography travel on a motorcycle), and not feel as if I'm compromising on image quality for the sake of portability.

    There's an old saying in photography that the best camera is the one that you have with you. Never has this been more true. It's always with me, plus it really is the best camera!

    Shoots great photos. Great dynamic range. Easy to use navigation and screen. Good build and good battery life.

    Great lens with awesome focal lengths and apertures.

    Definitely worth the almost 1000 bucks for a camera because it has so much features and quality. Dont be hesitant because of the cost. It is very competitively priced for what its got.

    Bad seats at concert = Great photos at concert!

    I've had many cameras, back when you had to figure out the filter factor and compensate the exposure/ISO. Love this camera.

    This camera is so easy to operate- I had really far back seats at concert festival, but this camera got artists on stage! It's considered a point/shoot, which is GOOD, because a lot of venues won't let you bring a pro camera in. It's light, all plastic, not heavy metal or mirrors, easy to carry. Only problem I had was trying to turn it off after uploading pics to phone, just turn off wi-fi and bluetooth along with the power button does the trick.

    I love it!

    I love this camera. I love to take pictures of birds and flowers. Has great stability and the zoom is fantastic. If your looking for an amazing point and shoot this is definitely it. It has its own wifi so you can connect to your phone and upload pics to it from anywhere. I haven't even begun to play with all the settings yet. Oh and the macro setting is perfect. I couldn't be happier.

    High End Camera Without High End Price

    The Nikon B600 takes comparable photos as a DSLR, but without interchangeable lenses.

    The images are quite sharp much like you would get with a DSLR.

    This camera is for a user that wants great photos without all the bells and whistles offered by a DSLR.

    With many shooting modes, the B600 provides excellent photos with its built-in flash.

    My only complaint is that I wish Nikon would have provided an automatic flash. Instead, you have to lift up the flash head when taking flash photos.

    Other than that, the Nikon Coolpix B600 offers a lot of value, especially when compared to a higher-priced. DSLR.

    Scratch on Zoom Lens

    The camera works well and ease of use is good. However before I could use the camera I had to put in the battery and charge it for two hours. After I charged it and turned it on when I opened up the zoom lens I found a scratch on the side of the zoom lens which really upset me. This is a brand new camera and there should’ve not been a scratch on the zoom lens, therefore the camera should have not gone out to be sold after inspection at the manufacturer. Maybe this camera wasn’t inspected? I am very disappointed because of that scratch. I paid 100% money for my camera, I expected my new camera to be in 100% brand new condition.

    great camera and deal

    this is my first big purchase for a camera . and I did extensive research . I was going to buy a camera package off Amazon , but I just so happened to read the fine print and their cameras are REFURBISHED !!! I WANTED A BRAND NEW CAMERA NOT a previously owned camera . so I looked on best buy website , spoke through chat to their electronic specialist and we compared different beginner cameras and I chose this one . I don't regret it !! wifi capabilities and a rechargeable battery to name a few .

    I purchased this basic camera for the zoom quality

    I purchased this basic camera for the zoom quality. I needed to be able to tape my child's performances and see her face clearly. Also purchased camera to take movement pictures as well. However, you will need a portable HQ audio recorder if you were to record vocals for best sound quality.

    So Much Fun!

    Ok I am in love with this camera! I am in college and bring this camera with me everywhere. Everyone always makes fun of me since we have cameras on our phones, but having this forces me to take pictures without being on my phone, so I have more fun! It has this mode called creative shot which gives you six images for every picture, and adds random filters, cropping, and makes the pictures look crazy! As in crazy fun!

    The only downside is that the screen did break. There is something wrong with the camera internally, but Canon has a year-warranty where I could get it replaced for free. But that would mean giving up the camera for about 2 weeks and honestly I do not want to give it up!!! I always end my nights with a few hundred photos and loveeeee going through all of them.

    When I go out or am with my friends, I literally just point and shoot and I can't even the see what is on the screen but I have so much fun with it, and some of the creative shot filters and edits are amazing. I would definitely recommend this.

    The camera is light and compact, it is a replacement for my previous model that I had had for 7 years.

    It has travelled the world and fits nicely into your pocket. It is an unassuming camera but takes some great pictures.

    I am happy with my new camera.

    So far it's a great little camera.

    It seems to be a very versatile camera. In automatic i does a fine job for those hurried point and shoot times. In the manual mode, it allows you to change the aperture for high contrast, bright, or dim subjects. The camera also has presets for dark conditions and even fireworks displays. Having owned it about a month I'm still learning all of it's capabilities.

    Can not recommend

    I have been doing photography for over 15 and is an awful camera. I have had 5mp cameras with no optical zoom that shot photos 500 times better than this one. I bought this because I wanted something compact I can take anywhere but that doesn't work if it can't take crisp pictures. There is pixelation in every photo even in good lighting. I will be returning this camera it definitely is just awful and a disappointment.

    Easy to Use and Easy to Carry

    I have several PowerShot SX's and I like them. But I've been cycling a lot lately and I wanted something smaller and lighter. I didn't expect to find it to have almost twice the Megapixels as my last SX so that was a pleasant surprise. If you're use to using PowerShot then the User Interface is about the same thing. Design choices come down to compromises. I would have preferred a screen that tilts up but I like getting so much picture taking power in something smaller than my hand with a good image stabilizer capability. I really like being able to carry this little guy around my neck or tucked into a little gadget bag on the bike. I haven't considered mounting it on the bike because I think that the vibrations may be a little harsh for it. I like to stop to take a drink and shoot a few pictures and then attach the images to my ride maps on MyMaps.

    I bought this item for my granddaughter and she loves it. Brought back memories of the original Polaroid. I would caution though that I personally find the pictures on the small side but as far as quality is concerned it is very good. As I said it was bought as a gift and since the recipient was pleased so was I.

    My Daughter Loved it, that’s all matters

    I bought this for my daughters birthday and the smile I got on her face worth millions. She loved it.

    It’s easy to setup and photo quality is also good. For beginners like my daughter the auto one is good, but I would rather prefer the previous version where you have control on few light options. As only got 10 snaps all are used and had to get stock up the 2 pack one, one of the disadvantages of this cameras as well, you keep investigating.

    Excellant

    This is a wonderful camera. I am an experienced photographer (old school even with film developing and printing) and I have found this to be fantastic. The optics are great, it is perfectly balanced, easy grip, fingers fall right onto the controls. It uses AA batteries, so if you run out of power they are found everywhere. The only fault I have is one that is apparent in all digital point/shoot cameras now, there is no viewfinder. Bridge cameras for high end users used to have a viewfinder as there are lightening situation where the screen is not visible, but I think bridge cameras cut into DSLR sales and viewfinders and high end bridge cameras were eliminated. The 40X optical zoom is terrific and to be able to go from that to almost zero for macro is wonderful. A great camera.

    I first liked this because of the plum color, sad but true. Then I read the reviews and all were mostly good. The one that got me the most was being able to take pictures of the moon. I was like no way. Way. I'm not a photographer by any means, just wanted a good camera for vacation and sports etc. This is above and beyond what I need and I love it. Got a great pic of my son's intense face from across the field, zoomed in on animals in the tops of trees or at the zoo. very impressed. It's made some fun Instagram pics lol

    Great quality and features for the price! I was looking for a camera that I could get started on advanced photography with, for a decent price. I have not been disappointed at all. The zoom is so good that it works like a set of digital binoculars. Each feature has a scrolling marquee that tells you what its used for. Also very customizable. I have already had two people take note of the camera model after seeing photos like the one in the example.

    I am so glad I dropped my other camera in the ocean. Not really cause it was a good camera but this camera is even better. I need a Point and Shoot to tag along with my D5100 and this B500 takes great pics. I love the Bird watchers scene setting. It works great! I do a lot of wild bird photos mostly of eagles and other raptors. The pictures are clear and crisp, and even from a distance they come out great! Any birder looking to shoot pictures as a hobby should definitely check this camera out! Nikon is great I love their cameras.

    Easy to transfer pics to.my phone to post

    I would've given this a 5 star if it used the same rechargeable batteries as my Nikon D3100 which I've had for decades. I like the quality of the pictures, but the sensor on whether I still have my lens cap on is too sensitive and currently I need to smack it to "wake it up.". I get an error message " take off lens cap and turn off camera and turn it back on. " Frustrating , but still workable.

    I haven't bought a camera for like 8 years, and I had been wanting a light weight compact that has smart features that help the novice ( me ) with photography. I love photography and needed simple to understand, but something that would be clear pictures from a distance and close up and especially night photos. This camera also has WiFi and blutooth capability so I can send photos anytime I want to share. Very easy to opperate. Much more so then my last Nikon.

    A Premium Compact Travel Camera

    This camera has all the features I have wanted for some time, and is within my budget. It is a premium travel camera that has a 1-inch sensor with 20-Million pixels, a very good Leica lens with a 10X optical zoom, and very good optical image stabilization. It comes equipped with a 3-inch touch-screen that allows a host of controls directly. It has very good automatic image control, that makes the camera very easy to use. It also allows one a host of means for manual control, and facilitates this with a control ring on the barrel of the lens and a dial on the top of the camera - and each of these can be user selected for different exposure controls. The camera is small and compact - easily placed in a jacket pocket. It is unintrusive - important for candid shots. I carry it with me on my daily walks, something I would not do with my larger cameras.

    The attached photos of a deer family and of a cardinal were each taken at 10X optical zoom, with automatic image control. The camera was handheld, and indicate the quality of the optical image stabilization. The sun rise photo was taken at maximum wide angle, again with automatic image control.

    Some accessories I would suggest include:

    - SanDisk - Extreme PRO 128 GB SDXC Memory Card

    - Case Logic - Era Camera Pouch

    - Spare battery (DMW-BLG10PP)

    Best point and shoot camera so far

    This camera is more than what I expected.

    In shopping for a point and shoot camera for my trip there were two qualities that I needed.

    1. delivers quality photos close to my SLR.

    2. being that I am a true novice/beginner, SIMPLE!!

    This camera has superseded all my expectations. The quality of the photos came out better than my SLR (Nikon 3200). Maybe it's because this camera has a feature (with the option to disable) to display a brief description of what each setting does. For a "dummy", this was really helpful (recall, I am a beginner so I have very little skill and understanding of f/stops, ISO, etc).

    All that matters is, all my shots were in focus and the quality is AMAZING! . The only con I have is its a bit bulky as a pocket camera.

    Great camera for casual shooting

    I have a Canon 6D and a wide array of lenses, which are great, but too heavy to carry around on a daily basis. Finally got tired of inferior mobile phone photos so decided to pick up a bridge camera that can fit in my pocket and produces decent quality images. Researched the current line of advanced point & shoots and settled on the ZS100 because image quality appears comparable to the others and it has a 10x zoom, which makes it more versatile.

    Obviously image quality of a 1" sensor is not up to full frame standards, but I've found it much better than my mobile phone and unless I pixel peep, can produce images that are very acceptable.

    The biggest benefit I've found is that it has expanded my ability to be creative and capture images that I wouldn't have taken before. Generally I use a tripod with my DSLR, which takes time to set up. The ZS100 allows me to shoot quickly and hand-hold shots from various angles with surprisingly good results.

    The only negative I feel is the difficulty in controlling ISO, aperture and shutter speed. Maybe its just a matter of getting used to the controls, but I would have preferred separate controls like what's offered with the LX100. I was very tempted to get the LX100 except for the slightly larger size and limited zoom range.

    All in all, I'm pleased with the ZS100 and look forward to using it as my casual go-to camera.

    Great Point and Shoot

    I got this camera to take photos at concerts since my DSLR isn’t allowed in and the last point and shoot i bought was back in 2010, so a little outdated. Have taken it to a couple shows so far and it’s worked great! Obviously isn’t going to be on par with a DSLR, but the zoom range is really good and the fact that it shoots in RAW is perfect for me.

    Great Little One

    I had researched over a month to find a camera that fits my purpose.

    This did reach my expectations with picture quality and portability (fits in my coat pocket nicely).

    A bit too costly for a point and shoot - more than some of the DSLRs in market. But the only other point and shoot camera that can match it in specifications of this product line is Sony RX series which is way more costlier. Its auto-focus is nice but slower than competitors (My friend has an RX100 Mark IV). Its packing is cheap for a 650$ product, it doesn't matter since you are not going to use that box anyway. But, you might feel that you got a duplicate product looking at its packaging.

    Its 10 X Zoom is stable and thanks to its 1 inch sensor, night shots are very good (nearly the best - but you can use the built in night modes to get a great night picture). The picture quality is standard (do not expect it to be like a DSLR, they have a more controlled focus and bokeh effect). The most important and the the main function is its 4K modes (video, burst shoot) - this is fantastic, especially with the 5-axis image stabilization. The Post Focus is not really what is expected to be. The battery has a fair performance, depending on what is used more - video/still-photos/4k Burst etc., I did not like the view finder, reason for it being an electronic - but I knew this before I bought it. There is no screen articulation, which I do not need - I am not using it for v-logging or a fan of selfies. I mostly use it for landscape or random still life photography. The camera has a WiFi to mobile communication via app - This is amazing for this generation making your life easier, you can just transfer the pics and even take pictures remotely without touching the camera. If you are looking for a nice travel camera that fits in your palm and which can quickly capture good images, this is best in the line (only rival being Sony Rx series, other do not even match). It has several other features, which I tested and can go on writing about them - that is for you when you buy one. Happy clicking.

    The best camera is the one you will carry

    As a full frame DLSR owner with a heavy zoom lens, I was looking for a smaller camera which I would actually take with me on hikes and bike rides. The ZS100 fits the bill. It packs quite a feature set in a small package. It will easily fit in large pockets, can be used discretely, and is light enough to carry on a long hike. I liked how the zoom has good reach, and the fact that it produces raw files was a plus for me since I like to make adjustments afterwards. The picture shown is after using Cyberlink's PhotoDirector (similar to Lightroom) to pull out more details, which is a great aspect of having RAW files. I noticed Canon's equivalent camera in this category only had JPEGs.

    I found the zoom impressive, and it's my first camera with an electronic viewfinder. Oh my, how did I live without this! Image quality is pleasing. It can't compete with a DSLR in low light but still does ok, though I find image really nice when enough light is present.

    Great camera for the price.

    Pictures are great, even at full zoom. I would recommend a tripod when using at full zoom. I got this camera to take pictures of wildlife. So far I'm very pleased. I have taken pictures of Deer at 450yds. and Elk at approx. 600yds., my range finder only ranges to 600yds. Full instruction book is only available online. It would have been helpful to have a full printed version included with the camera.

    Bad seats at concert = Great photos at concert!

    I've had many cameras, back when you had to figure out the filter factor and compensate the exposure/ISO. Love this camera.

    This camera is so easy to operate- I had really far back seats at concert festival, but this camera got artists on stage! It's considered a point/shoot, which is GOOD, because a lot of venues won't let you bring a pro camera in. It's light, all plastic, not heavy metal or mirrors, easy to carry. Only problem I had was trying to turn it off after uploading pics to phone, just turn off wi-fi and bluetooth along with the power button does the trick.

I couldn't be happier.

    High End Camera Without High End Price

    The Nikon B600 takes comparable photos as a DSLR, but without interchangeable lenses.

    The images are quite sharp much like you would get with a DSLR.

    This camera is for a user that wants great photos without all the bells and whistles offered by a DSLR.

    With many shooting modes, the B600 provides excellent photos with its built-in flash.

    My only complaint is that I wish Nikon would have provided an automatic flash. Instead, you have to lift up the flash head when taking flash photos.

    Other than that, the Nikon Coolpix B600 offers a lot of value, especially when compared to a higher-priced. DSLR.

    Scratch on Zoom Lens

    The camera works well and ease of use is good. However before I could use the camera I had to put in the battery and charge it for two hours. After I charged it and turned it on when I opened up the zoom lens I found a scratch on the side of the zoom lens which really upset me. This is a brand new camera and there should’ve not been a scratch on the zoom lens, therefore the camera should have not gone out to be sold after inspection at the manufacturer. Maybe this camera wasn’t inspected? I am very disappointed because of that scratch. I paid 100% money for my camera, I expected my new camera to be in 100% brand new condition.

    Easy to get Great Photos Under Water

    This camera is easy to use. Just make sure the door on the camera is shut and locked. It has several easy settings to choose from. It is hard to take a bad photo. Try to steady yourself to get the best picture. The most fun I have is with the macro setting shooting small creatures. It does an excellent job. You can also take a photo and change it into a picture that looks "painted". So fun! There are several settings to bring out your artistic ability.

    Good camera

    I have the Coolpix 120, but when I thought I lost it, I bought this one (it’s orange, therefore I needed it!). It’s a good camera, but not great. It takes beautiful underwater pictures, but when I try to take night shots (a parade, for example), it doesn’t perform as well as I’d hoped. It’s possible that it’s me, but the photos aren’t clear or sharp. But underwater, excellent. An added bonus is that it’s drop-proof. I’d definitely buy it again.

    PS- I found my 120 about three days after I bought this one.

    Ideal for a special purpose I have

    I use it for copying genealogical records for my family history. It is mounted on a board that is clamped on a microfilm viewer, the wide-angle lens is perfect to view the total image. A Sony app is available to remotely control the camera shutter, and images are automatically saved on a cellphone, tablet or PC. Unfortunately I have not been able to use the wi-fi camera app provided by Sony, the software is difficult to get working on a Samsung tablet. One problem is precisely zooming the lens with the tiny lever provided. I may have to provide a much larger control knob.

    Great point and shoot camera

    I have used this camera multiple times since purchase and it takes great photos for a point and shoot camera. My only complaint is the charging system, which requires you to take the battery out and plug it into the proprietary battery charging system. I had thought that you could use the usb data cable and plug it in to charge, but that will not work. This requires you to bring that additional accessory along with you or have multiple batteries, which usually isn't too big of a deal. Aside from that one issue, this item is definitely a good purchase. There are relatively few point and shoot cameras in this price range that also boast the 20 megapixel resolution that this does. -- This review allows only for photos to be uploaded with 5 mb or less of image size and the majority of the images that I have shot with this range between 7 mb and 12 mb, so I found 2 photos that were under this file size that were shot with the camera. They are definitely not the best ones that were shot, but may help. These were literally the only 2 I had that were under or equal to 5 mb.

    Takes great snapshots, but slow

    I bought this to supplement my Nikon Coolpix 520, as I wanted something "pocketable." While it takes excellent photos, it does take noticeably longer to take a photo once the button is tripped. I suspect that is the image stabilization working, but not completely sure. Appreciate the built-in wifi feature...it's relatively simple to use, and I was able to capture some nice snaps of a hummingbird feeding using it. Overall, it's a good deal for the money.

    I have used this camera a couple times, around 340 pictures. It is doing pretty good, it has very good zoom, taking beautiful pictures even in moving targets, like a people, animals, even running car wheels. It is pretty awesome and easy to carry it. Battery life is good enough, I have charged twice for the 340 plus the erased ones. I just would like to have some more options for editing pics. Wifi works good as well, it was the main reason because we bougth the cam. For the price it is completely awesome small 20 pixels camera.

    On a learning curve, not good with technology

    So small! I wasn't aware that this camera is so small. I haven't really used the camera enough to understand how it works. It doesn't have a USB slot on it to connect directly to my computer. It uses Bluetooth to download pics onto your computer. I had some difficulty downloading this software, and I am not very fond of the way the software works to perform the transfer. I found my older cameras more to my liking. The few pictures I toke with it are okay, not outstanding. After I learn how to use the camera maybe my pictures will be higher quality. I wanted a camera to take better pictures than my cellphone does, for my ebay auctions.

    A Throwback That's Still So Satisfying

    I think many people would say "Why would I buy a polaroid camera when I can use my phone?" and I think that's the wrong question to ask. The question to ask is "What should a camera do?" And that is to capture memories. The Polaroid Now does a fantastic job of bringing back the uniqueness of it's style of camera, and its a lot of fun!

    PROS:

    - The Camera itself is really a nice retro design. The design is sleek and the camera is very light, the only reason the camera is long is to accommodate for the film/pictures you put inside.

    - Set up for this device is as simple as can be. All you do is plug the camera into charge (if needed, mine has plenty of charge out of the box) and put in the film/picture paper inside of the camera. Boom you are ready to go!

    - The controls on it are really easy to use given there is a power, flash, timer, and capture button. That's it! The flash defaults to being on every single time you take a photo unless you turn it off and there is a nice indicator to let you know how many photos you have left.

    - I have to say, using the Polaroid Now has been a lot of fun! It's not complicated to use because you point, capture, and the picture prints instantly. Once the picture dries the quality was very good!

    - Overall, this camera is meant for an exact purpose. It points, takes pictures, and prints them off instantly. It's meant to be a simple device to use and bring you joy in having those memories printed right away. I personally think it's a well made product that does exactly what it's meant to do really well.

    CONS:

    - Probably the biggest downside is going to be the amount of pictures it can hold and the cost of buying more. The Polaroid Now holds 8 pictures at a time and the 8 packs aren't as cheap as you would like them to be.

    - The drying time of the photos take some time and is quicker if you put them in a dark place like your pocket. Not a huge deal to me but doesn't give you instant satisfaction in seeing the photo.

    - I don't love the placement of the capture button. It is on the front of the camera and I think placing it on top would have been easier to use for taking regular pictures or selfies.

    - The Polaroid Now charges via Micro USB and I think it would have benefitted using USB C given most tech is pushing that way.

    BOTTOM LINE:

    - The Polaroid Now is a throwback to a different time in picture taking but it still applies very much to this day! The pictures print with a modern nostalgia to them and you will have a lot of fun using this and having the pictures right away!

    Great camera, but film is costly / Pics too blurry

    My wife loves taking vintage-style Polaroid pictures, so, I figured this Polaroid Now camera would be perfect. It's a modern version of the "old" ones, but with zoom options and a USB charger.

    Unboxing the camera is a pretty standard affair. Nothing special here. I did want to say that there was only a Quick Start guide included with the camera. No manual that we could find. The included camera strap was a pain to put on. So much so, that I went online and downloaded a copy of the manual to see if we were doing it right. The strap listed in the manual was for a different type of strap - not the one included. Just disappointed that there was no regular manual included to outline how to use the features of this camera, such as the zoom and such.

    During the first two days of use, we took 11 total pictures. Of those, 4 came out blurry. Of these 4, 2 were zoomed in a bit, the other 2 were not. This is why I needed to reference the manual for something as simple as the zoom feature. The other 7 pictures that came out normal were good. They kept the vintage "old-school" style look to them and captured the correct lighting around and behind the subject.

    However, my biggest issue with this camera is the cost of the i-type film that it uses. I looked at Best Buys site and for a pack of 40 total pictures, it's around $65. That's pretty expensive and a significant investment in something that we would just use for "fun" and nostalgia. It does use another type of film as well, but this was not tested and the manual says the default/best use film for this camera is the i-type, so that is what we will stick with.

    Overall, I give it a 4 out of 5 stars. The camera itself is great and well build. But with a lack of an included manual and having to look it up online, just to figure out some simple features such as the zoom and certain questions, such as "did I load this film right?" and "do I remove the tab from the film cartridge?" that were just a mystery when trying to figure it out on your own. We even had to watch a few YouTube videos. This, in addition to the cost of the film itself and the amount of blurry pictures we got with only 11 total pictures taken, was a huge concern to me. So much so that I almost gave this 3 stars. But I figure the more we use the camera, the better we will get at using it. Based on this, I wouldn't personally recommend it to a friend.

    Retro Feel - Fun Camera

    Blast from the past! The Polaroid Now Instant Film Camera is a throwback to a simpler time – a less digital one. I have to admit that I never had the pleasure of using an original Polaroid camera, but I always wanted to. I’m an 80’s baby, so I grew up through the 90’s and watched as friends and family toted one of those cameras around, snapping pictures and seeing the outcome minutes later. Back then you had to wait until all the shots were used up on the film roll before you took it in to get developed. Weeks would go by before you found out your thumb was over the lens. Polaroids were your first chance to see those captured images in almost real time. Now with cameras in phones, mirrorless, and DLSR’s everywhere you can snap pictures at every opportunity. You can see your latest shot instantly, and delete it if you don’t like it. Pictures just don’t mean as much when they can be cast off so easily. With the Polaroid Now you get that permanence and tangibility of the image back, so I was really looking forward to using it.

    Again, I have no prior usage of a Polaroid camera, so this is all new to me.

    Fresh out of the box the Polaroid Now comes with a simple detachable strap, a micro-USB charge cable, some literature, and the camera itself. There’s not much else, so it’s pretty straightforward. The little “getting started” literature is helpful for getting familiar with the camera. Shows you what all the buttons do, how to load the film, etc. There’s only 5 buttons on the camera. Power, flash, shutter, timer/dual exposure, and the button to reload the film tray. The literature doesn’t explain dual exposure, so I had to look it up on the website. You have to click the timer button twice, quickly, to engage the dual exposure. Double-click it again to turn it off. The charging port is on the side and has a colored LED to indicate the battery life. 16 shots in, most with flash, and it still shows a good charge is left. The Polaroid Now is a pretty simple camera with basic abilities and features. If more features are needed the OneStep+ has an expanded feature set over the Now (tripod mount, exposure and focal point adjustments, Bluetooth).

    From loading the film to shooting is a relatively short time – 15-20 sec. Per the recommendations I have been storing my film in the fridge to help it keep longer. So far I’ve shot 2 packs of pictures – 8 color and 8 B&W. I have the same amount of film still available, and I am looking forward to shooting it. I have noticed that I prefer shooting in B&W, and I’ll explain why.

    I didn’t care for the color shots as much as I would like. They have been washed out or dark, and getting the light right has been pretty difficult. I shot in my kitchen with all the lights on, no flash, and the picture was very dark. With the flash on it looked fine, but I was in a well-lit room, so it didn’t feel like it should have been necessary. Shooting outside, in full sun, was the only way I was able to avoid using the flash. Unfortunately those pics came out a little washed out. I thought maybe it was getting hit with too much light, so I moved to shoot from the shade. Objects in the shade with me came out looking good, and I liked the exposure. I took pics of my kids out in the sun, while I was in the shade, and I got a lot of lens flare and a little overexposure. So overall, shooting in color, is a little problematic.

    Switching gears to shooting in B&W. Completely different story in my opinion. I really enjoyed shooting B&W. The exposures in similar situations to the color came out looking a lot better. My favorite pictures of my kids and SO came on the B&W. Contrast and clarity were both better than expected. I honestly think going forward I will probably shoot in B&W 75% of the time. Part of it is the novelty of the B&W polaroid shots like the old days, but also I really enjoy the quality and look of it. I’m not big on digital B&W, but for some reason I really like it in this format.

    The only issue I have found with the camera is a weird little discolored section that comes out on every picture. Its right down at the bottom and has a wavy border. The picture still continues, but below the border the colors are off. It shows up on both color and B&W, so I know it’s not the film. I don’t know if this is a normal phenomenon or maybe my sensor or whatever is a little wonky, or maybe it’s from shaking the picture to get it to develop faster. It doesn’t detract from the pictures, but that is something that I have noticed. Again, this is the only “issue” I have had with the camera. The rest may just be limitations of the sensor or ability.

    More of a Novelty Item, Unfortunately

    I really wanted to love the Polaroid Now. On paper, it seems like a good addition to the Polaroid family with a good amount of features that includes autofocus. Sadly these features do not translate into a very functional product that I want to use often.

    Inside the box, you will find the camera itself, a neck strap, micro USB charging cable, and a big, well organized quick start guide. Film is NOT included. Build quality on the Polaroid Now is fine. The entire body of the camera is made of plastic. While it looks minimalistic and feels nice to the touch, I worry about scratching the plastic when I’m out shooting photos. There is no carrying case or soft fabric bag included and there is no tripod mount. If you try and take a selfie outdoors, you’ll have to set the camera down on a bench, pavement, rocks, etc. which could easily scratch the base. Instead of a tripod mount, you find a quote on the bottom of the camera that reads, “An essential aspect of creativity is not being afraid to fail” - Edwin Land. Each button on the camera corresponds to a self-explanatory function, except for one. The self-timer button doubles as the activation button for double exposure. Double exposure activation is not explained well at all in the quick start guide and it took me a few frustrating minutes to figure out that you need to push the self-timer button twice to activate this feature. I think a dedicated double exposure button would have been nice.

    Using the Polaroid Now is a lot of fun, just like any Polaroid. It’s really satisfying to take a photo and immediately have the shot print out the front. Sadly, it isn’t very practical, nor does it produce very high quality photographs. Photographs take 10-15 minutes in the dark to develop. No shaking necessary. Even when following the recommended shooting instructions from Polaroid, my outdoor photographs with and without flash were completely washed out. My indoor photos with and without flash were so dark. While I understand this is the “look” of Polaroid, these photos are exceptionally bad. At roughly $2 a shot, this makes me think quite a bit before I take a photo. When you hit the shutter button, you feel blind because you have no idea what you’re going to get after that 10-15 minute development time. This detracts significantly from what is supposed to be an enjoyable experience and can be a real downer when you missed a memorable moment. One positive is that the autofocus on the camera has lessened the amount of out-of-focus throw-away shots.

    I will likely take this camera with me as an adjunct device on day trips to the lake or while hiking because there’s nothing quite like pinning a Polaroid shot to a bulletin board. For all other travel, this camera is too large and not worth the hassle of packing. I’ll stick to using my phone.

    the cutest camera

    Love this camera! Also a huge fan of the self timer option and the double exposure. I was able to use the self timer when I went on a trip with my boyfriend to San Francisco and it was just the best option since it was just us. Absolutely a new favorite.

    Nostalgic Joy

    There’s no way around it, I really recommend getting one of these, especially before summer hits.

    The whole thing is so simple that it’s kind of difficult to write a very detailed review but out of the box, there’s no real frills here. The packaging is very standard, instructions are a light read and setup doesn’t take long. Out of the box you’ll obviously have the camera (mine was charged), a mini usb charger, and then a carrying strap for the camera.

    The carrying strap attaches easily, but I never really bother with those type of things, even though I’m contemplating using one in the future because the camera is a smooth plastic material, a tad heavier than you’d expect, and awkward to hold.

    As for setup, and use, it couldn’t be easier. You load in the Polaroid film (sold separately), hit the power button, decide if you need flash or not, point the camera, and shoot! There’s an indicator next to the power button to let you know how many film cartridges are still inside and the flash next to that. The front of the camera also has a timer on it, which would be useful if you want to try and get in the picture too, or take a selfie but that’s likely not a feature I’ll use much more past initial testing. The historical downside with polaroids is that each picture costs about $2 in film, much more than its competition, so the idea of hoping to time a selfie right or use the timer to hope I get in the family photo on time isn’t a high priority.

    Just as it’s always been, you wait about five minutes after the film pops out of the camera, and just like that, you’ve got your physical copy ready to roll.

    If I was to be super picky about one thing it’s that, in the world of smart phones and incredible cameras in our pocket at all times, the quality of the pictures on here need to be higher. The attached picture was something I shot with the subjects 20ish feet away and they come out lacking much definition or detail.

    That said though, these are still incredibly fun, very nostalgic, and always come out looking great with natural lighting so spring-fall usage is ideal. There’s no better time to buy than right now!

    Fun Camera, Expensive Film

    I like the Polaroid Now and if you’re looking for that type of camera and can work within its constraints you can get some really striking and memorable photos. It’s certainly not for everybody and the high cost of the film packs means you have to be very selective about the photos you take, but that extra consideration can also go towards capturing moments that might get deleted out of hand on a digital camera or phone.

    I would say that before getting out and using this camera, it helps to research and understand the type of shots it’s good at taking and the ones it’s bad at. For example, though it may be something that’s well understood by those familiar with Polaroid cameras, they are at their best when there’s a lot of light. It’s why the flash defaults to always being on instead of off. The lens system in the camera provides 2 focus zones, but will not focus on anything closer than 1.8ft. Not initially knowing that left me with a lot of blurry pictures in the first pack of film I went through.

    After my initial run of photos (and going out to buy more film packs) I feel a lot better about taking pictures with the Polaroid Now. The photos have that iconic vintage look and feel to them in something that’s real, tangible, and instant. It’s certainly something you could mostly replicate on your phone, but the overwhelming amount of choices you have with various apps and filters can lead to results feel a little manufactured. Sometimes the simple option is better.

    My only real problem with this camera is the cost of the film packs. Depending on the quantity you buy the cost of each picture is between $1.63-$2.00. The best bang for your buck is getting the 5-pack (40 photos total) for $65. That cost might not feel so outrageous to some, but in the days where you can store near limitless amounts of photos on your phone and print them for many times less it’s a little harder to stomach. You’re paying for a very particular experience with the Polaroid Now, but if you know that’s what you want going in I think you’ll be happy.

    Bringing back to the 80s!

    The Polaroid instant film camera is a great way to step back in time with something most of us may of grew up with. The real question becomes rather or not this an exact replica of a former camera or are there some minor upgrades.

    First off out the box your going to receive to receive the main camera, micro usb charging cable, neck strap and a box of film. Fully charging before the first use is always recommend and on a depleted cell it took about a hour to fully charge. A fully charged battery will last long enough to go through 15 film packs. At first glance it doesn't appear too much has changed. On the backside of the camera you have your tiny view finder, power button, flash button, and LCD screen which displays how many photos you have left. On the front of the camera you will find the shutter button along with a nice little timer button which will allow you to jump into the shots with your friends or loved ones.

    So lets dive in to how well it works and what you can expect. Exposure is what you would expect to receive from a Polaroid. Under low light conditions even with the flash on picture quality is still low. Flash off with natural light works the best. I have uploaded a couple of photos that show what natural lighting photos look like with the flash off. There not too bad but they do look and feel pretty similar to the Polaroid photos i remember taking as a kid. But hey im not even upset because you don't a Polaroid camera for studio quality photos. You buy a Polaroid to be able to shoot film on the fly and have fun with it. The next thing i wanna talk about is develop time. The old photos i grew up with i remember we used to always shake the photos and i never really knew why. Also i remember them developing a lot faster (or at least i think i remember). These new photos advise against you shaking them and also advise that you place them face down or in a dark place during the developing process. Couple things to say in this regard. One, if you do shake the photo it seems to throw the chemicals around and the photos can come out with streaks. Second, even though they will still develop in any condition i did notice a big difference in quality of the photos of them developing in natural light versus being put a dark space and allowing them to develop. Also on average depending on how hot the camera is getting and how rapid your shooting photos the developing process can take anywhere from 5 to 10 mins which in my opinion seems a little longer then i remember, however i could be wrong as its been a very long time since i've used a Polaroid camera. The camera has a nice little led light next to the charging port which lets you know when your low on charge. Green is charged, yellow is getting low and red means your done. Pretty standard light indicator.

    Overall guys this camera is pretty cut and dry. It does what we all remember Polaroids doing which is shooting quick, fast, low quality photos that you can have fun with around your friends and family. While there are some small upgrades like a chargeable battery cell and a heads up display for your photo count, in my opinion this feels and shoots just like the old Polaroid cameras did when i was young. For me this isn't that big of a deal and i like it because when it comes to replicas i prefer them to work and even act just like its former glory. Though there isn't that much of a big difference in picture quality versus its predecessor its still just as fun as ever to use. And at this price point that the unit comes in at, you really can't go wrong picking one up. So should you buy one? If your looking for studio quality shots then obviously no, you came to the wrong area. However if your looking for something to take on camping trips, BBQ or local family outings where you can shoot, have fun and hand out some photos then ya pick this unit up as you truly can't go wrong with a old school Polaroid. I love this unit as it looks and feels just like something i grew up with.

    Slow between shots

    I am still trying to figure out all the different menu options on this camera. It is not intuitive. The camera is light and small, which fits into a pocket or purse easily. My old Sony DS camera had a weird Sony card, but this one uses the regular SD card. I find it slow going from one shot to another, but that may be because I'm used to how fast an iPhone goes between shots.

    My Second Point and Shoot Digital Camera

    I found the controls to be much the same as with my older digital camera. That helped me to learn what I could do with this device. I hardly need more than 5 megapixels, or the digital zoom. The optics are good. I can modify the exposure a bit as I did with my older camera. The rechargeable battery I will probably find an improvement as the older camera ate AA batteries (notoriously short battery life). Good buy for those wanting the spontaneity of the smartphone camera, and the better focus that a dedicated camera will have. Sample picture included.

    Ideal for a special purpose I have

    I use it for copying genealogical records for my family history. It is mounted on a board that is clamped on a microfilm viewer, the wide-angle lens is perfect to view the total image. A Sony app is available to remotely control the camera shutter, and images are automatically saved on a cellphone, tablet or PC. Unfortunately I have not been able to use the wi-fi camera app provided by Sony, the software is difficult to get working on a Samsung tablet. One problem is precisely zooming the lens with the tiny lever provided. I may have to provide a much larger control knob.

    Great point and shoot camera

    I have used this camera multiple times since purchase and it takes great photos for a point and shoot camera. My only complaint is the charging system, which requires you to take the battery out and plug it into the proprietary battery charging system. I had thought that you could use the usb data cable and plug it in to charge, but that will not work. This requires you to bring that additional accessory along with you or have multiple batteries, which usually isn't too big of a deal. Aside from that one issue, this item is definitely a good purchase. There are relatively few point and shoot cameras in this price range that also boast the 20 megapixel resolution that this does. -- This review allows only for photos to be uploaded with 5 mb or less of image size and the majority of the images that I have shot with this range between 7 mb and 12 mb, so I found 2 photos that were under this file size that were shot with the camera. They are definitely not the best ones that were shot, but may help. These were literally the only 2 I had that were under or equal to 5 mb.

    Takes great snapshots, but slow

    I bought this to supplement my Nikon Coolpix 520, as I wanted something "pocketable." While it takes excellent photos, it does take noticeably longer to take a photo once the button is tripped. I suspect that is the image stabilization working, but not completely sure. Appreciate the built-in wifi feature...it's relatively simple to use, and I was able to capture some nice snaps of a hummingbird feeding using it. Overall, it's a good deal for the money.

It uses Bluetooth to download pics onto your computer. I had some difficulty downloading this software, and I am not very fond of the way the software works to perform the transfer.

    Little Camera - Big Shot

    Packed into this little camera (I am from the era of SLR cameras) are a multitude of features. I took this camera with me on an Alaskan cruise and took both still and video clips. They turned out great and this camera was very easy to learn to use and use well.

    My Coolpix Upgrade

    This Nikon replaces my old Coolpix S8100 but with all the advantages of a bridge camera, such as RAW shooting, MACRO, and EVF [small]. The size of the camera works perfectly for me because it is easily portable, and the zoom capability is sufficient. Photos are beautiful on sunny days, and those taken on an overcast day were surprisingly sharp. However, I found that shooting in complete shade is to be avoided. I have not explored all the possibilities the A1000 offers, but I am very pleased with my choice and look forward more great shots.

    Great small camera and excellent as travel camera!

    Great small camera with excellent zoom and picture quality. Tried a a similar Canon and Sony cameras that took pictures that had a lot of pixelation... not this camera. I also have an outstanding Nikon P900 for additional zoom capability. Below pictures show free-hand moon shots taken with the A1000 and P900 cameras... both look excellent and show the zoom capability. Definitely highly recommend this camera above the other brands at this price point.

    Good camera with some small limitations.

    This is a good camera overall, and is great for folks who want a "pocket size" camera for general photography. Pictures are clear and the videos are nice. It is not a "low light" camera, although I have taken many good pics indoors during concerts and they come out good. Video is good, but sometimes the focusing doesn't catch up when zooming; a problem with a lot of smaller inexpensive cameras. For some strange reason, the tripod "socket" is off to the side and not in the middle. A big plus (for me) is that I can shoot video and stills at the same time; something not found on most cameras. It also shoots panoramas. Overall, this is a nice small camera that has many features on it that only come in cameras that are larger and more expensive. There are better cameras out that, but you will pay three times as much for them.

    Phenomenal Point + Shoot Camera

    I love this camera. One of the best options you can make if you do not want to carry a DSLR. Takes amazing shots of people and landscapes. I take amazing sports shots too. The Bluetooth function works great so I can instantly transfer to my phone to post to social media.

    Love this camera! Suitable for all skill levels

    This camera is great for me. I'm an experienced semi-pro photographer that sometimes just needs something lightweight, small and reliable to shoot landscapes, old signs, and people. This fits the bill! It's RAW setting and adjustable controls make it easy to use and suitable for all skill levels. Highly recommend!

    Nikon A1000

    Love this camera. You will need a tripod or some other form of stability when zoomed all the way out, which by the way is great. Bought it as a back up and when I didn't want to carry my other cameras. Compact but powerful. Easy to use. Never had a problem with it. It was stolen when I didn't take it with me one time. I will be buying another one.

    Good people; good service.

    One of the best investments that I have ever made. The quality of the camera is exceptional.

    The folks at Best Buy always do things in a very professional manner. That is why I purchase the majority of my electronics at Best Buy. The people are always gracious and helpful.

    Fun camera with minor drawbacks

    Right off the bat, I like this Canon Ivy Cliq+2 Instant Camera & Printer. It has a nostalgic feel to it of point-n-shoot cameras that were fun to use back when cell phones were these giant bricks that needed a cigarette lighter in the car to charge. I’ll break this review down in two parts: The Camera and The App.

    This Cliq+2 has a sleek design and feels purposeful w/ the limited buttons and controls (all the frills are found in the app). You have the power button, the light setting (flash, outdoors, auto), a button to choose between Black & White or Vivid (color), a button to put a white border around your picture, and a button to take the actual picture. That’s it. Five buttons. It has an SD Card slot and it comes with a Micro-USB plug to charge the camera. The Micro-USB cable is annoyingly short, just over a foot long. There is a tiny little bar to thread a wristlet on either side of the camera for your preference, but I found it too cumbersome to attach it and gave up after 20ish minutes. The flash works great. The printer itself is quiet and really quick, although taking the cover off to insert the sticker printer sheets was tough. The camera would print whether I held it, laid it down, or stood it upright. It looks like it holds only 10 sheets at a time and it will blink when it’s out of paper or needs to be charged. The Cliq+2 uses Canon Zink 2”x3”sticker sheets and these are some high quality sticker sheets. I was seriously impressed with these sheets! I’m assuming you can use other brands of Zink sheets, but they all seemed to be within the same price range as Canon so I will continue to use this brand. These are not flimsy sticker sheets, they are THICCC and have a smooth, glossy finish. They were easy to stick to smooth surfaces (like my desk, a folder, my phone) and I was actually able to re-position them on some notepad paper a few times. They will lose their stickiness if you reposition it more than a few times though. I may have gotten carried away testing that out. The “quality” of the photo will vary with your app usage, but for simple point-n-click shots the pictures were nice. If you do NOT put an SD Card in, the camera will not save any pics. It will work just like any regular instant camera. If you do install an SD card, it will save your pics to the card and you can transfer them to your computer later. It will not send any pics you take to your phone. By the way, if you have not used these types of instant camera printers before, Zink is a type of ink-less printing (the sheets have these tiny color crystals in them that the camera heats up in a way to create your picture). Supposedly, these pictures will last for a couple of decades before fading out.

    The camera also has an auto-shutoff feature when it’s not being used to save your charge. The viewfinder is just like those when I was a 90s kid using disposable cameras on vacation because my parents would never allow us to use the Rebel (or was it an Eos?). Anyways, it’s a fish-eye lens to get your subject in the picture…generally. Do not count on it to get a perfectly centered picture. I wasted a few of my sticker sheets on shots that were off-centered before I figured the best way to get the right shot….

    …and that’s to use the App.

    The box that this comes in lacks a user guide, but there’s a card inside w/ a QR code that will take you straight to the app store to download (or you can search Canon Mini Print) and it’s from here that can access the user guide, FAQ, and all the fun options to manipulate your photos. You will need your Bluetooth turned on for you to communicate with the printer part of the camera from your phone when you are ready to print. The app contains the standard photoshop options (filters, light adjustments, borders, texts, stickers, collage etc.), however; there is no crop or delete option! The closest I could get to crop was to pinch-to-zoom and then continue with my edits. The text option may be hard to read on some photos as they do not have a black/white border to help the letters standout on any background. Everything in the app was free and there were plenty of options (even Halloween frames as it’s October at the time of this review). You can edit your photos in other apps and access them from the gallery to print or even pull pics off your Facebook or Instagram to print as well. They also offer circular sticker sheets to purchase if you want something other than rectangle. You can save any of your photos that you create in the app. My Galaxy S10+ had no problem running the app or communicating with the camera. If you want to get a really good sticker pic, use your phone then send it to the camera to print.

    I believe this camera was meant to be used in a fun way, but I have much more in store for this Canon. Although this will be a blast for older children or adults to use at a party, this can do so much more! The Canon Ivy Cliq+2 would be great to use as a “picture label” for items that needed to be stored in containers for organization (crafts, toys, accessories). For example, you can easily snap a picture of your shoes and then stick it to the outside of the shoe container then store it away. Then you can see your shoes at a glance without opening every box. This would also be great to use at the start of the school year, take a picture of your students/staff and edit in their name and stick the label at their desk or backpack cubby or for making a chart to hang up. Or even design your business card and then stick this to your folders, merchandise, etc. You can avoid the sticky part altogether and put these pictures in frames for your desk, make tree ornaments, or add to holiday cards to send.

    Overall, this is a neat and fun camera that can do more than capture great memories.

    Slim pocket camera and wireless printer.

    The Canon Ivy Cliq +2 is a fun little camera that’s more like a pocket photo printer. I’ve seen a few other competitors around, but I think this is probably the thinnest and most truly pocketable. It’s as slim as a deck of cards and while it kind of reminds me of the old instant print Polaroid days, this little camera is easier to carry and does so much more. As a camera, it has a unique layout in that there’s a traditional viewfinder with a fixed wide angle lens, but the front of the lens has a reflective coating around it which serves as a selfie viewfinder. It seemed kind of gimmicky at first, but the reflective coating actually does the job fairly well, even at night. Keep in mind, this is meant to be a casual, fun phone, so don’t expect anything remotely close to serious, high end digital photos. In fact, your smartphone might take better quality photos but that’s not a problem here, because the Ivy Cliq + 2 was made to sync up with your phone through Canon’s Mini Print app. Setup was a breeze on my Android phone and thankfully the app is straightforward and easy to use. There’s photo filters, frames, stickers, text, and other custom photo editing options to choose from, but the best part to me is how it can sync up with my phone’s camera feed, Facebook, Instagram, and Google Photos. This was huge to me, because I have a bunch of photos on those accounts that I wanted to edit and print out for friends. In fact, I’ve been using it as a wireless pocket printer more than anything and there’s a certain joy to turning my friends into printable meme stickers right in front of them. The prints come out as 2”x3” full color photo stickers with a peelable back that reveals the adhesive. Adhesion is pretty good, kind of reminds me of a bumper sticker, but not nearly as permanent. Print quality is ok, nothing studio quality, but clean enough overall and perfectly suitable for casual photo stickers. At about 50 cents each photo print, it’s on par with other cameras with built in printers, but this might have the most friendly form factor. The translucent white has a pinkish sheen, the fit and finish is good, and the body feels sturdy despite being all plastic. I like this camera a bit more than I thought I would, but I think that’s because I find using it as a pocket printer for my phone to be pretty fun. For the price point, I do wish the camera was a bit better, but it’s good for what it’s designed to do. This is casual photography at its most casual. If you’re in the market for a fun and truly pocketable camera with a built-in printer, or even just a wireless pocket photo printer, definitely give the Canon Ivy Cliq + 2 a look. Being truly pocketable is huge plus and it's a camera I don't mind giving to little kids to play with.

    Super Fun Instant Camera

    Canon has been pumping out some really cool portable photo printers and the Ivy Cliq + 2 is no exception. Whether you use it as a camera or a printer, it’s a really fun device!

    The camera itself has some settings that you can apply with the push of a button like Vivid, Black & White, and the option of a white border or borderless printing. The printing quality is okay to good: some photos have a blue ink edge, some will show blurring if the subject is moving, and it’s easy to over expose your shot in sunny conditions. That being said, I’m not totally put off - it’s got a digital camera “vintage” look and I kind of like that. If you want better quality, just connect this device to the mobile app and print specifically selected images from your smartphone. The Canon Mini Print App is fun and user friendly - it has a good selection of stickers and borders as well as filters.

    The camera’s physical profile is thinner than I expected, and it’s pretty compact for what it is. The lens does not protrude very much and has a super convenient “selfie mirror”. I love the iridescent quality. It's very visually appealing! The black wrist strap is difficult to apply and doesn’t match the camera, but honestly, that’s not really a main concern of mine so no deductions for this. A small charging cable is included, charging time is reasonable, and the battery lasts a good while - I've only charged it once since I got it.

    These 2”x3” photos are great keepsakes and awesome for scrapbooking given that they’re also stickers themselves! I peeled and stuck some on my laptop case, my fridge, and my sticker wall. I’m looking forward to sticking these on personalized holiday and birthday cards.

    The Canon Ivy Cliq + 2 has a small learning curve as the camera buttons are not all explained in the manual or literature, but they’re not hard to figure out. All in all it’s pretty easy to use and printing doesn’t take very long. I will happily keep using this device and I can recommend it to anyone looking for a compact instant camera.

    Great concept, so so execution!

    This was a great concept that Canon failed to execute well. However when it comes to instant print cameras, this one is probably one of the best.

    To start, this camera came with ZERO instructions! This made using this camera extremely difficult as this isn't a camera you can efficiently operate without instructions. I was able to find a pdf with instructions in the app. These were very cumbersome also.

    The camera came with 10 sheets of sticker photo paper. One upside is that these cost substantially less than the competitions instant print paper.

    The picture quality isn't bad for what it is. This machine does not use ink, it prints via heat. The images are not super sharp but overall acceptable. The color is also a little off. See the pics attached to this review for example. My dogs look very red when in reality the mastiff is almost blonde and the other is a GSD for reference.

    The camera boasts that you can edit pictures in the app before printing. This is only somewhat the case. You can take pictures that are on the SD card or on your phone, edit them and print them. However I could not edit a picture I was taking before printing (other than adding a solid color border)

    The stickers and filters you can add to pre-taken pictures is a fun touch however.

    In the app you do have the ability to preview the picture you are taking before deciding to print. This is a hair more difficult but helpful to not waste paper. I have added a Screenshot of this app feature.

    When it comes to editing pre taken pictures there are a ton of cute frames, filters and stickers to choose from. You can also add text. If you look at the picture of my daughter and I or the picture of one of our dogs (both taken from a smartphone) i have added filters and stickers. You can then print these pictures through the camera eventhough it was not taken from the camera.

    Where I see flaws in the execution of this camera is the inability to take a picture with this camera without it printing if you do not use the phone app simultaneously. It boasts that you can add an SD card to use it as a regular camera also. However this only works if there is no paper in the camera! There should be a setting on the camera or in the app to turn off printing at times as to not ruin paper by taking it out or it printing less than desirable pictures (the subject blinking or moving, etc).

    This makes the camera fairly frustrating! While I did learn to use the app to preview and reject photos, we wanted to give this to our 6 year old who loves taking pictures. However without her having our phone much paper would be wasted.. or she wouldn't get to enjoy the instant print feature we though she'd love.

    The few things I loved most on this are on the front of the camera. There is a selfie mode. When this mode is on there is a ring light around the lense (pictured). Also on the front, on the inside of the light ring, is a mirror! Great touch. The light from the ring actually creates a nice even glow on the face.

    All and all this would be a great camera if Canon could make a few change, add instructions in the box, and fix some of the app quirks. This is definitely more of a novelty than practical.

    User-friendly. Family friendly!

    Canon IVY CLIQ+2 is a beautiful camera that takes equally nice instant square photos. This one also improves over the old Cliq camera which I've been using over the year. I have had some time using the camera and I've enjoyed most of the features the camera comes with. You can peel off the back of the Zink paper and use your photo as a sticker. It's' a nice take on a family photo for someone who loves photo stickers everywhere.

    One of the camera's best features I think with this one is the LED ring light provided on the front of the camera to help with low light issues. Flash does its job and it's pretty mighty for a camera of this size. This was fun to use at a party and friends seem to enjoy the photos bring printed out. It gets nice and bright to bring lighting to selfies. in fact, I think with the next version a bigger ring light would be appreciated. Canon made this as user-friendly to use as possible.

    The design of the product is nice with a "Paeralsent white" color that gives it a unique vibe. A big photo mirror in front of the camera gives an ample view of you and your surroundings; it also doesn't take long to charge and go. Viewfinder gives you more of the area of the eye. There is an SD card slot at the bottom of the camera so you can expand the storage. Cliq+2 connects to other devices through Bluetooth and the connection was just fine with my iOS device. Canon has an app called "Mini Print" camera where you can add stickers, filters, and other effects to your little 2x3 photos. The app does compliment the product and gives you more control over what you want to be printed.

    Speaking of printing it does a nice job printing but it doesn't print any faster than the first generation Cliq camera but I am glad that the Zink paper is still cheap for the camera. if you want or need a solid digital camera this is one the family seems to enjoy. the design is perfect but there are some things I believe that can be improved such as a bigger ring light for the camera but overall it's a solid fun camera anyone can pick up and use.

    Gen 2 is Fun AND Useful

    Instant print cameras have been around since the Polaroid Corporation introduced the Land Camera Model 95 back in 1948. And while it may seem like instant print photos are a gimmick that fell out of fashion with the invention of digital photography, printable photos have become big business once again (as it is a way for camera & film companies to ensure consistent revenue in a similar way to how they once sold film).

    The Canon Ivy Cliq uses Zink paper which requires no ink. (Zink actually stands for Zero Ink.) Instead, the photo paper consists of multiple heat sensitive layers containing dye crystals that display various colors when they melt. The camera delivers varying intensities of heat which quickly results in a colorful picture. It is important to note that while many companies (such as HP, Polaroid, Lifeprint, Fujifilm, & Canon) offer Zink cameras – all Zink paper is made by one company: Zink Holdings. They created the underlying technology – which has been licensed out to several companies. So, while physical cameras or printers may vary in quality, all of the photo paper is essentially the same.

    Just how good is the second generation of Canon’s Ivy Cliq+?

    Well, compared to the first Cliq+, this new generation is fantastic! The Cliq+ 2 still feels like a toy (as the form factor has not changed), but Canon wisely added bluetooth connectivity - turning the device into a fully functional Zink printer.

    ...The device is still only able to snap 8 megapixel images, but it now allows pictures to be taken even when no Zink Sheets are installed (as long as you have inserted a Micro SD card). And, users are now able to edit and print any image stored on their mobile device - greatly increasing the usability and the fun!

    When I reviewed the 1st Gen Cliq, I commented that Canon had focused too heavily on creating a flashy new device that looks fun and lost sight of actually making a good camera. And, while the camera still feels limited and gimmicky, I do feel as though Canon put genuine thought into improving nearly every aspect of the device. By combining the camera with a Zink Printer, the Cliq+ 2 is finally fun and actually worth owning.

    I, personally, would still choose to save money by purchasing a Canon Zink printer over this combination device. But, instant print cameras are just plain fun. (And thankfully Zink pictures only cost 50 cents each - compared to literally $2.00 for a single Polaroid picture.) Canon truly has done an impressive job adding so many features while keeping the cost low. The Cliq+ 2 is now a device that I can recommend. And, I genuinely look forward to snapping a bunch of goofy sticker pictures with my 6 year old.

    Pros:

    + Takes a digital copy of the image that prints (if a Micro SD card is inserted)

    + Photo prints are actually stickers

    + Photos are thin and stick well, but can also generally be peeled off of surfaces without causing damage

    + Only 50 cents per picture (as compared to classic Polaroid pictures which cost $2.00 each)

    + Zinc Photo Paper is not sensitive to light (in the same way as film). This means you can open the back of the camera without ruining film.

    + No ink or development chemicals to worry about

    + Allows double exposure prints (Simply re-load a picture back into the camera and take a 2nd picture that prints over top of the first. Fun & artsy!)

    + Photos print in about 55 seconds and do not require time to develop (compared to Polaroid pictures which take up to 10 minutes to develop)

    + Rechargeable battery built in

    + Built in flash and LED selfie Ring Light (which is very bright)

    + Selfie mirror actually works reasonably well

    + The Cliq+ 2 also functions as a photo printer and can print any picture stored on your phone / mobile device

    + The mobile app makes both editing and printing photos incredibly easy

    + The mobile app is easy to use and has tons of fun editing options

    + The App allows you to see all of the pictures on the memory card within the Cliq Camera and choose to edit and print

    + The app even allows you to create a collage of pictures before you print

    + The Camera now saves digital images even when zinc photo paper is not installed in the camera! (This was not the case with the previous version.)

    + The camera now has a physical button that allows you to select to print images with a white border (or turn this feature off and print without a border).

    + The camera now has a physical button that allows the user to take Black and White pictures, or Vivid pictures.

    + The shutter button now offers some tactile feedback and is much less prone to taking pictures accidentally (which was an issue with the previous version)

    + The app allows a mobile device to be used to control the shutter remotely

    + The camera is able to snap additional pictures while printing is in progress

    + The lens is recessed and protected from scratches

    + The flash can now me turned off, placed on auto, or turned on

    + The wrist strap can be attached to either the left, or right side of the camera

    Cons:

    - The camera no longer has a physical button that will re-print the most recent picture that was taken. (This function can, however, be performed from within the mobile app.)

    - The camera no longer has a physical button that changes the printable image from 2x3 inches to 2x2 inches. (Images now fill the entire Zink sheet unless the border button is pushed, or other options are selected from within the app.)

    - When the mobile app is connected, the camera’s power button will not turn off the camera.

    - Camera does not have a screen (pictures must be viewed and edits made from within the mobile application)

    - The mobile app is not able to offer a live view of what the camera sees

    - Photo resolution is still only 5 megapixels (same as the previous version)

    - Camera does not have any indication of how many pictures are left (although you can take the paper out and count the sheets)

    - Image quality on the Zinc Photo Paper is still fairly poor (this does not appear to be due only to the 8 megapixel resolution of the camera - as mobile photos taken at higher resolutions still have limited clarity when they are printed)

    - Water eats through the top layer of the photo paper destroying the image underneath. If rain touches an image, or if liquid is spilled on a photo – they will be ruined. Keep in mind, these are stickers – so they may end up on notebooks or other areas that kids might splash or get wet.

    - The back of the stickers are difficult to peel away (there should be a slit on the back of the paper – instead of needing to be peeled at the corners)

    - No battery indicator

    - Does not include a Micro SD memory card

    - Does not include any carry case, or bag/pouch

    - The cost of Zink photo paper is the same price regardless of the quantity you buy (50 cents per 2x3 inch sheet) and the cost does not appear to have gone down over the past year

    A Fun Little Camera / Printer

    I am old enough to remember the days of instant Polaroid cameras, and this cute little camera brings back those vibes. Light weight, great battery, good print quality, and some nice 2020 bells and whistles.

    Connection is a breeze. There is a QR code on the quick guide page inside the box. You just scan it and it will take you to the app store on your smart device. Once I downloaded the app, it walks you through the steps on how to load the paper and connect camera to your phone. It asked me to update the camera’s firmware as soon as I connected to my phone, but that was a quick process as well. Once it was up and running, it was time to see the magic.

    You can use your phone as a viewfinder to make sure you setup your shot correctly. If you choose to, you can just use the camera’s built-in viewfinder to snap off photos without your smartphone. Just know that once you click that shutter all the way down, and the image is shot, within a few seconds it will begin to print them out. I took about 3 pics while I was playing with it, and it took a couple of minutes to print out all 3. The image quality is good considering it is an instant print built-in to the camera.

    Some nice things can be done when you are using your smartphone to view the images. To begin with, you can preview your shots before you print them, which is very nice so you are not wasting prints on bad framing. Second, you can also shoot pictures with your smart phone and then send them to the Cliq to be printed. It also allows you to connect to your Google Photos, Facebook, and Instagram accounts so it can print images from there. You can also go through your smart phones Gallery and choose images you might have shot already.

    The camera also has a slot for a microSD card on the bottom of the camera which I still need to test out. I imagine it will let you snap off a bunch of images and then view them back on your phone to choose which you’d like to print. Honestly, I think I would just snap them with my phone and then send them over to the Cliq, but that might be an option for some folks.

    This a fun little camera/instant printer. It would be fun for anyone looking to make some quick fun prints to hand out to friends, or to decorate their room/work areas. Battery is good, easy to setup and use, and the features offered when connected to your phone are great.

    All-In-Wonder Instant Camera

    If you’re in the market for an instant camera, then this camera has to be the best in terms of price, features and portability. But in this day and age, why would you buy a camera like this? It boils down to being a fun camera that brings digital photos instantly to life in your hands. The Canon Ivy + 2 is the jack of all trades in terms of instant cameras. Using the Canon Mini Print app, it can customize and print your photos taken from your own camera phone. With an SD card installed in the Ivy, it can save off your photos while printing them, which I love because there have been countless times where I wish I had a digital copy from an instant camera. Let’s not forget that it does take instant photos too!

    The camera itself is quite simple to use and does not have a whole lot to tinker with. A simple on/off button will get you up and running. There is a slider on the top of the camera to choose between landscape, portrait and selfie modes. In portrait and landscape modes, there is an illumination to aid in autofocus in dimmer lighting. Yes, this thing has autofocus and has the very familiar Canon beep sound when focus is optimal. This can be attained when pushing the shutter button halfway down. Again, if you’ve used any point and shoot or a DSLR for that matter, this will be very familiar to you. In selfie mode, 8 LED lights around the ring of the lens illuminate to help your selfies brighten up. The 8 LEDs activate when the shutter is halfway down; go ahead and frame your shot based using the large mirror as a guide and finally complete the selfie. Around the backside of the camera is the viewfinder (sorry, no LCD display), a button to toggle between black and white or vivid image processing, and finally a button to toggle a border around your framed shot. It is also on the backside where you’re able to slide a cover off to load fresh prints (I think the max is 10 at a time), which is relatively simple to do.

    Within the Canon Mini Print app, you’ll find the one most important thing: the User Guide. It doesn’t come with one in the box and that might irritate some folks, but rest assured that you’ll have 24/7 access to the PDF version of it (and you can even download it and print it if you really want to). Moving forward from there, you’ll find lots of things that you can do in the app. You can access your photo albums from the camera phone, Instagram, Facebook, Google Photos (I am an Android user), and even shots from the Ivy if you’ve got an SD card installed and customize them as you choose (with frames, stickers, text, filters, or even free-hand draw) before you send them for print to the Ivy. You can also choose up to 6 photos and print a collage of photos on a single print sheet. If you purchase the Circle Sticker Pack down the road, the app will allow you to create prints using the Pre-Cut Sticker tool. Finally, if you really wanted to know what kind of shot you were framing, you can control the camera remotely using the Snap a Shot! feature which allows you to see the shot in real-time before you take the shot. You can evaluate how B&W/Vivid filters change your shot and even 2x zoom. You can adjust contrast, saturation and color balance as well. You can even add a choice of frames to finish off your photo. But to be honest, I don’t think much of us will use this feature full-time as it’s more fun just picking up the camera and taking photos, ya dig? Oh, and I forgot to mention it’s very simple to connect to the camera from the app; just have the camera on and press the connect button on the app.

    Picture quality captured from the Ivy is average at best and is on par with the other instacams on the market. If you’re looking for high quality shots from an instacam, I don’t think there is such a thing, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t great looking photos either. The 2x3 prints are all stickers and can be stuck anywhere your heart desires, and there is no ink involved during each print. You can rapidly fire the shutter button if you need to take those in-the-moment shots; the camera will queue up your photos and print them one by one after the fact. Finally, taking a selfie is very easy with the help of the large mirror.

    My one true complaint is the sensitivity of the shutter button. Depending on my grip, I found myself taking photos inadvertently. The shutter button seems a little on the soft side. Normally I wouldn’t mind this accident, but with each accident comes an accidental print. I don’t think there is a switch to disable instant printing, so you’ll have to be extra careful around the shutter.

    Fantastic Camera for Beginners and Travelers

    Unwilling to carry a full DSLR but wanting more than a point and click or phone for a road trip to Spain and Portugal, I bought a refurbished B500 and I couldn't be happier. At under $300 (now closer to $200) this delight gave me great flexibility without the concern of carrying additional lenses or the worry of losing a $2000 camera to thieves.

    Image quality was good under a variety of conditions. Video is acceptable but not great. It doesn't have an external audio jack for a discrete microphone which would make this nearly perfect.

    It uses AA batteries, which is a plus for traveling but it's a thirsty little beast (even with WiFi turned off) so pack a box of batteries and plan to refuel frequently. I think I used 5 sets in 18 days.

    It's heavy enough to recommend using a crossbody sling, which I prefer to a neck strap, making it more comfortable to carry and readily at hand for quick shots.

    Almost Perfect!

    I purchased this as a gift for my fiance who wanted to start taking up photography. I was nervous about buying refurbished but figured I'd take the chance. Camera works perfect so far and looks brand new. My only complaint is that it didn't come with the lens cap tether and I am unable to find one online without buying another lens cap. Otherwise everything is great and she LOVES it!

    Amazing Camera!!

    I bought this camera for my little sister as a birthday gift, but used it myself when I took a trip to Miami. This camera is so awesome!!!! Amazing picture quality. Pretty good in low light. Impeccable zoom. Fast focus. Can take remote images with my phone. Video quality is great! I've never had a digital camera before this, so I can't compare it to much, but it was wonderful to use! I'm gonna buy another one for myself soon. My little sister loves it!

    Great camera for the price

    I had a more expensive Coolpix camera, but after many years and lots of pictures, it finally broke. I found this one and ordered it because of the price. It doesn't have all of the bells and whistles as the more expensive coolpix cameras but it has plenty of modes and scenes to take great pictures. I got it yesterday and was able to take two awesome pictures. Love this camera.

    Nice camera

    This is a nice camera, I like the rubber grip for an easy hold. The pictures are nice for an amateur as well. It doesn’t come with rechargeable batteries or a charge to an outlet which is a huge disappointment. It also doesn’t come with an micro SD card so until you buy that you can only take 5 pictures.

    Great camera for a beginner

    I find it very amusing that the example for a review title that the website gives me is "great camera for a beginner", because that is exactly what this is. I wouldn't want to use this as a professional camera, but for a casual photographer, this is probably about the best that you are going to get. The pictures are amazing (I'm kind of sad that I had to resize the photos and lose a lot of the quality in order to upload them), the different filters and settings are fun to play with. My favorite is the analog film mode (I don't have any pictures that I took with that which don't have my son in them and I don't want to upload pictures of him publicly). And it works in all kinds of lighting (including practically no light, the picture of the black jacket was taken in a room with nothing but a tiny bit of light coming in from a hallway). It isn't quite as responsive as a DSLR, but it is definitely faster than any other point and shoot camera that I've used.

    The video quality is really good too and while the built in mic isn't amazing, it is better than most built in mics out there (and there is an option to add an external mic, I haven't bothered though).

    The feature that I am geaking out the most about though is the built in wifi and the ability to directly upload to photo sharing/storage sites. It is a bit slow (especially compared to removing the memory card and inserting it into a card reader), but it sure is handy.

    A Great Product Bogged Down By Poor Autofocus

    So, I got this to try and increase my quality for my YouTube tech reviews and to possibly use on my Twitch stream for a face cam. For the most part it is a good choice, as it does a lot of things right, but as many other reviews have mentioned, there are some glaring negatives that will make a lot look elsewhere. I’m not an expert at cameras. I’m almost as run of the mill as you can get. I’ve been using my cell phone (iPhone X) to do any of my picture and video recording needs but wanted to upgrade.

    The first thing you’ll want to do when you receive the camera is install the two firmware updates that have been released since the camera first came out. The first includes an improved autofocus that is substantially better but still doesn’t fully rectify the issue. The second adds a 24-fps option to video recordings. Two things that were desperately needed and should have been available at launch. The update process is relatively simple. It’s strange to me that this camera has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, but you can’t download a firmware update through that.

    BUILD QUALITY/USE:

    The materials on this camera are a mix of plastic and metal. Overall, it feels well built. It has a small spot for your thumb on the back right and a small hump on the front right with a matte material to help with grip but because it’s so small and light it’s not the most comfortable. Most of the time I tried to use two hands just to insure I didn’t drop it. When vlogging there is a nice area to grab even when the screen is flipped up so there shouldn’t be any problem there.

    On the front of the camera you have a 20.1 MP, 1-inch sensor, 24-100 mm f/1.8-2.8 zoom lens with a control ring around the lens, which can be used to perform multiple functions such as shutter/aperture control, zoom, EV compensation, and ISO adjustment. On the front right is the small handgrip I previously mentioned. In single shot mode you can track subjects and take advantage of face detection. This works well but as you can see from other reviews, it isn’t flawless, and can leave a lot to be desired. These options don’t work with burst capture. It supports 4k 30 fps but only for 10 minutes at a time or else it will overheat. You can also do 1080p 120fps slow motion capture, but it is not as sharp as the other modes. Stabilization is good. I didn’t have any problems and it was better than my phones. When in focus, image/video quality is very good with low image noise, nice colors, and good detail. There is softness at the edges of the lens and tends to overexpose itself. Image quality and overexposure is better on this camera than on my phone.

    On the top of the camera going left to right you have a power on/off button, shutter release, below the shutter release is the zoom, then a mode dial, and under the mode dial you have an EV compensation control which goes from -3 to +3. All these buttons feel solid without wobble. Some may say they are a bit tight as it can be hard to switch the modes with just your thumb.

    On the rear of the camera, going left to right, top to bottom, you have a high quality (but not quite as high quality as some smart phone’s) LCD touch screen with an adjustable tilt that goes up, down, and forward for vlogging/selfies. A lock exposure (*), record video button (usually 1080p 30/60fps), a command dial that has four direction presses. On the outside of the command dial is a rotational dial that does the same thing as clicking in a direction. Up is for drive/delete, right for flash on/off/auto, down for info, and left for macro/manual focus. In the center is a q/set button. Under that you have a play button to review previously taken photos/videos on the memory card, and a menu button to adjust settings. By pressing the q-button it gives you a lot of other options to select either through touch or through using the direction buttons to further adjust your picture depending on the setting you are on.

    On the right-hand side, you have a micro-HDMI, USB-C port, and Wi-Fi button. The camera has both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Setup is straight forward and easy. Via Bluetooth you can connect to your phone and send pictures and then upload to social media that way. You can also control the camera with that as well. Wi-Fi allows you to upload your photos to certain cloud platforms and certain social media sites. You can live stream directly to YouTube but during a live stream it does not capture the footage to your memory card. In camera charging is supported but it also comes with an external charger.

    On the left you have your flash slider which pops the flash up and a 3.5 mm microphone connector.

    On the bottom right, you have a battery port with the memory card holder. It supports SD, SDHC, and SDXC memory cards. Battery life for my use was great. However, it won’t last you all day shooting with a CIPA rating of 235 images.

    PROS:

    • Ease of use

    • Everything except the auto focus just works and works well.

    • Picture/video quality (at this price point and when in focus)

    • Ability to manually control a lot of features.

    • Wi-Fi/Bluetooth.

    • Zoom

    • Touch screen

    • Excellent pocket camera for vlogging.

    • Works well on streams (twitch) as you can passthrough without anything on the screen.

    • Literally pretty much everything about the product except for price and autofocus.

    • Has better quality photos/video than my iPhone when setup correctly.

    CONS:

    • No EVF

    • Auto focus is much improved with new firmware update, but it still leaves a lot to be desired. My phone’s focus is so much better.

    • Battery won’t last all day for shooting.

    CONCLUSION:

    This camera is packed full of features and the spec list for this price point is great. Build quality, operation, and ease of use works great except for the focus. It is a good pocket camera that is made as a point and shoot camera for noobies like me. It was easy to setup and learn. Picture/Video quality is good when it is in focus. I have very little negatives. However, the focus leaves a lot to be desired and makes me not want to use the product. As I feel like I spend more time trying to get the stupid thing to focus on what I want than I do making content. It also takes me more time because I must go back and record or take a photo of something if it is out of focus. Or skip forward when editing video to wait for it to focus. You can also miss moments waiting for the camera to focus. Yes, the picture/video quality is better than my iPhone X in all regards. I can also take photos in dark or bright environments better because the lens is better. Though not dramatically and at this price point it is a very hefty tax to pay for it. I reverted to just doing manual mode for almost everything (including focus) and my experience with that is great and has made me enjoy the camera a lot more. But doing so made me learn a lot more about cameras than I was at first expecting.

    With all that said. I just don’t know if I can recommend this camera strictly due to the focus. As I think the target demographic for this camera is for individuals like me who have very limited knowledge of cameras and just want it to work. But you must fiddle with settings to get the best quality out of it which requires a learning curve. Most reviews from people who know what they are doing don’t seem too put off about the focus. Likely because they are doing manual mode in which the camera is great. For those who are more casual users and aren’t as serious about picture quality and learning new things, then I just don’t see why the camera on your cellphone wouldn’t be adequate enough and allow you to save $750.

    A high quality camera with a lot of great features

    The Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III is a high quality camera with many great features. It gives the user extreme portability while allowing for professional level photos and videos.

    The camera was paired with the SanDisk Extreme Plus 128 GB UHS-I microSD card, which is ideal for 4k video due to its fast read and write speeds and for storing a large number of high resolution photos.

    Features to note:

    * 3" multi angle touchscreen LCD: The touchscreen is responsive and is easy to view from any angle. I did not have any issues with hitting a wrong button. When it is flipped up or down it is firmly attached and doesn't feel like it is going to snap off. The versatility of this screen allows the user to position the camera at angles other cameras could not while maintaining the ability to see what the camera is seeing. I think this is great because nothing is worse than recording something and finding out you or the intended object are not even in the frame! Overall, this screen is well implemented and a great feature.

    * 4K video: The camera has the ability to record 4K video at 30 fps and HD video at 120 fps. It can be recorded in both horizontal (landscape) and vertical (portrait) positions. It has a multi angle touchscreen that can be flipped up 180 degrees so the user can see themselves while recording in both the horizontal or vertical orientation. Streaming is only available on YouTube and there are some additional requirements/limitations. There is the option to add an external mic to the camera in addition to the standard stereo quality mic that is included; however, the standard microphone delivers clear sound. Lastly, there is a HDMI output so videos can be played back on a large TV. These features allow the user to create high quality videos without needing to purchase a stand alone video camera. The quality of the videos are excellent, especially when recording in 4K. 4K is very power intensive/heat producing and I found recording shorter segments (a few minutes at a time) was the most efficient so the camera wouldn't get too hot. When recording in lower resolution, the camera did not experience any overheating issues. If you are thinking about vlogging/streaming or creating home/casual videos, this camera hits the mark.

    * WiFi/Bluetooth technology to transfer photos/videos: Using WiFi technology, it was straight forward to transfer files from the camera to a smart phone. I used an iPhone 11 Pro Max running IOS 13.3. You download the CameraConnect App from the Appstore and follow the onscreen instructions. It gives you the option to connect via Bluetooth or WiFi. The directions are clear and even the most novice user should be able to successfully pair the camera and phone. ***A note for connecting via WiFi - If you have an installed VPN that connects on demand, you will be unable to connect to the camera until you turn off this option in the VPN settings on.*** Within the App you can turn on/off geotagging on photos if you do not want that information available.

    Please note there was a known issue with auto focus but this has been addressed by Canon with a firmware update on 12/12/2019.

    Overall, this camera is excellent. It is compact in size but packed full of amazing features. It allows you to take beautiful high resolution photos with its 1 inch 20.1 MP sensor and up to 4k 30 fps videos. I believe it out-competes all smart phone cameras in both photo and video quality. It is highly competitive in its camera class. I highly recommend this camera.

    New Age Camera That Makes Everything Look Better

    Although smartphones have made it easier for anyone to be a "photographer", there is still a need for high quality standalone cameras. The Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III continues to prove the need for cameras by offering high end specs but while also conforming to the smartphone era.

    PROS:

    - Once unpackaged, you notice how small the camera feels and overall how elegant it feels. It’s a nice mix of having so weight and form to it so that it feels high end - but not too much to make it feel clunky. I am a big fan of the black design and I think overall its very pleasant to have and hold.

    - Set-Up is mainly a breeze! There are a few options you set up on the front end and then its ready to go. Of course you can do a deep dive into the options menu to change preferences etc…but if you want to you could start using this camera almost right out of the box which is great.

    - I would highly recommend you utilize the Canon Camera Connect App and I think most users will. This app is overall what you will use to communicate from your smart phone to your camera. It offers tons of great features including taking a pic, quickly transferring that picture to your phone, and then you can edit/post/send that to whatever you need to. Very easy to use and great idea for many people as they want content instantly.

    - The 3 inch touchscreen is one of the best feature of this camera. It really provides clarity for the images/videos as well as offers incredible ease of use. The multi-angle view is fantastic when taking different angles but also for the selfie view, it’s a way where you can take a picture or take video and see exactly what is being taken. It really helps makes your content better overall.

    - I was very impressed with how great the 4K video looks on this Camera. It just adds to much depth to whatever you are recording and playback looks wonderful on it. Very pleased that Canon did so well on the 4K!

    - Finally, most importantly this Camera takes pictures so well! The lighting is always great, there is great definition in the picture, and the auto-focus is great. I know some people had issues with the focus at first but Canon has a Firmware update out and its essential to download as you should update firmware on anything you use.

    CONS:

    - The box does not come with a few items I wish it had which is a USB-C Cable, carrying case/pouch, and a memory card. All of those you will have to provide on your own.

    - Updating the Firmware requires you to plug your Camera into your computer via a USB-C cable and downloading the firmware from the website. You would think a camera like this could do it all via WiFi with no cables but it doesn't and I think it’s a step back for the ease of use for the camera user.

    BOTTOM LINE:

    - The Canon G7 X Mark III will make so many people happy: travelers, vloggers, social media users, and those who just want to just capture family memories. It has enough ease of use to just grab it and go, but enough deep features for people who really want to dive into making the best content possible. I used to think my Smartphone took pictures that were just as good as professional cameras, but after using this I know how far off I am!

    If I can sum up my review in a short manner, it is only that you NEED to ignore these reviews that are outdated and/or ignorant of the fact that Canon has released a firmware update to address the problems this camera was having with autofocus etc. Before I did anything shooting or filming, I made sure to update the firmware first.

    The steps to do this are fairly simple, but there are only a couple of poorly shot videos on the internet that outline how to do it in simple terms. I will give a crack at it in this written review.

    The equipment required is an SD card, a computer with internet access for downloading the firmware update (version 1.2.0 as of December 12th, 2019), and a bit of time. I formatted the card in the settings on the Camera (this wipes it completely clean, so be careful) and then plugged it into the SD card reader for my computer. On Canon's website, I looked up the firmware on the support page where I was able to download the Zipped folder containing the update file and PDFs in different languages on how to perform the upgrade. There are both Windows and Mac OS X versions available. I unzipped this folder and dragged the file PSG7X3_120.FIR onto the SD card (not inside a folder, just the main page). I then flipped the setting wheel to 'P' and pressed the view button to turn it on. On the settings page, go to number 5 and scroll down to firmware. It will show you the current firmware version (1.0.1. is what mine displayed) and it will ask you if you want to update the firmware. Select OK. It will then go through the process and shut off. When you boot it back up to check, it is updated! It then gives you the option of two autofocus modes; Mode 1 is what you want for a quicker, more adaptable autofocus while filming.

    The process is simple enough, taking less than 10 minutes, and is worth taking the time to do for a camera whose predecessor is so esteemed and loved by many.

    I hope this review and like I said, ignore the negative reviews that make no mention of updating their camera first with the latest firmware! Thanks for reading this and have a good day!

    Great Value and Intro into Photography

    My knowledge of cameras and photography boils down to can I trust my cellphone to capture my subject quickly, accurately and look good enough on Auto settings to share. But since I received the Canon PowerShot G7 Mark III, I've been trying to branch out and fiddle with White Balance, ISO, Focal Length, RAW and the likes that comes with working with a real camera. I've learned a little bit to get better shots but Auto mode works just fine for me.

    Overall, I definitely see the benefits of owning and using a Real camera but just whipping out my phone and snapping my subject such as my cats is just so much easier.

    Back to the camera. It's packed full of features that make it a compelling option for a beginner like myself. Has WiFi, and Bluetooth to connect to my phone, laptop or email to get my images to things I use everyday from the app. The charging/transfer over USB-C is a great touch for future proofing. The flippable view finder is great for vlogging if you're into that. 16x zoom helps you get in

    On the downside, the camera has issues with my SD card saying it can't be found or requiring a reformat only to end up working again through a power cycle.

    In the end, I do enjoy using the Canon, when I remember I have it around and wish to use it. A great beginner option in features and price until you can get into DSLR and Mirrorless options.

    Pros & Cons for Vlogging/YouTube

    I pre-ordered this camera the day it was announced as a replacement to our G7X Mark 2. The main feature I really needed was the Mic input, and the 4K option was nice as well.

    Thus far we’ve recorded a couple videos for our YouTube channel (The Montes Family) and if you watch the video titled “How well do we know each other?” you’ll notice the camera goes out of focus at certain points in the video and seems slow to correct. All previous videos on our channel were shot on the G7X Mark 2 and we didn’t have that issue with the Mark 2. So it seems the concerns about autofocus on the Mark 3 are legit. My only hope is that the issue is fixed in a future firmware update because it’s unacceptable for a camera at this price point.

    The only reason I’m keeping the camera is because I do like the fact that I can now connect my Rode mic directly and I no longer have to sync audio. Other similar compact cameras such as the Sony RX100 do NOT have a mic input so alternative options are limited.

    Other things to keep in mind; 4K video is limited to 9 mins per shot and the camera now requires a USB-C cable to connect to your computer (not included). I did have issues accessing my media directly from my MacBook’s finder app, but was able to finally retrieve the media once in Final Cut Pro. Overall, I really wanted to love this camera but the autofocus issue has tempered my enthusiasm for now. I’ll have to hold off on recommending this 100% until it’s addressed.

    Really like it

    Definitely a big improvement over our old cameras and phone cameras. Pictures seem to come out clear even in low light conditions and at high speed. Recording video is also a breeze as it has a built in mic that pics up nominal sound.

    OUTSTANDING !!

    I have owned Sony camera's for many years. In my opinion they continue to improve on their camera's and at the same time keep them affordable. I bought a similar camera from another brand with the same features for $150.00 more. It was shabby in comparison and I promptly sent it back. I consider myself an amateur photographer who just enjoys capturing those special memories of our family and grandchildren. Not to mention that I live in the mountains and have wildlife galore. This camera is amazing. It takes wonderful pictures , the zoom is quick and I haven't missed a moment or lost a shot yet. I'm having the best time learning and playing with my new camera. I only wish that it had a rechargeable lithium battery instead of 4 AA's. I did buy rechargeable AA's and a charger. But a regular digital camera battery would have been allot nicer. Other than that I truly cannot find one thing that I am disappointed it. Way to go Sony....you knocked it out of the park again !!

    Great camera for beginners

    I think for the price this is a great camera for someone who is starting to get into photography. Images are very nice, and the zoom is amazing. Only thing I don't like is that is battery operated. But other than that is great.

    Love, love Love!!!!

    I bought this camera shortly after it was released from Sony, and couldn't be happier with the results it gives me. I'm not a professional photographer, but I've won many contests and awards with my photos. This camera can take awesome pics in macro - or with the incredible zoom. The focusing is quick, the LCD screen can be moved to different positions to make it easier to see in bright light, and it has a viewfinder for those of us "old school" photographers! Easy to use in any mode! I've taken many Ribbon Winning photos with this camera! The few issues I have with it is not with it's performance. The lens cap is useless, and is easy to fall off and get lost. It doesn't come with a printed manual. I'm not one to run to the computer every time I need to know something about the camera - so that is probably my biggest beef. And altho I don't take many flash pictures as I feel it gives things a "fake" look, I have to say I don't like this flash at all. It almost always makes people look way over exposed. But this camera is so awesome in low light, you won't have to use flash very often. You can take a photo in such low light with unbelievable results - you'll be blown away! This is my 2nd Sony, and I'm sold! I have many film SLR's and a Canon DSLR, but this HX300 is my "go to" camera! I wouldn't be without it!

    Zoom is amazing

    I'm still learning this camera, but I wanted to share an impressive set of photos to show how well the zoom works.

    The first photo I have circled the small weeping willow tree in yellow. The second photo is the same tree zoomed in 35X.

    I am happy with the camera so far, needs some practice to get the great shots, but so far, it's amazing!

    A really nice, very small camera

    Sony HX99. There's a very wide range of cameras available. If you want a small camera that fits in your shirt pocket (about the size of a thick cell phone), but has better than cell phone picture quality, and quality camera features, then consider this camera. Rugged build, 30x zoom, evf, Sony OS, 4k video, etc. Use your cell phone camera for every day. Use this camera on vacation for better photos and minimum added bulk.

    Hardest charger to find in the WORLD!

    I love this camera for vlogging! My rating is only low because I lost the charger and I’ve been to several different locations to purchase another one and was constantly sold the wrong cord. Why is the charger so difficult to find. I even asked the manager to order one for me online and after waiting forever for shipping wrong cord AGAIN! I just want to be able to use my camera this is so annoying.

    This is the perfect balance between a simple point-and-shoot and a high end DSLR. Plenty of features. My wife loves the screen flipping, the zoom and the size. There are some other expensive options from Sony, but I think this is the one for the casual and semi-professional photographer.

    Very handy, good quality under the right condition

    This little unit is very handy. Outdoors in good light the pictures at all 3 zoom settings are good. The WiFi transfer works well. Under lower light, the pictures suffer, but not surprising for a zoom. The controls are pretty tiny too, but small size is also part of the draw. Net, it’s a pretty specialized device and for the right job it does the job well.

    My USB C iPad Pro charger worked but it should come with a plug really.
