  • The only downside is the flash takes a second before it takes picture so if you trying to catch something that might move ( say a rabbit ) you might miss it.
  • The flash is too bright almost ALL the time…
  • There's quite a variety of different things that you can do to the image, too (black and white, sepia, etc.); decent flash with control over when it goes off…
  • It's not work any more, then the Flash problem, using the Flash light is painful because whenever want to took a picture using the Flash Light camera automatically shut down…
    Arup (Walmart.com) - December 2011
  • The flash is kind of bright…
  • That's where the flash comes in handy…
