It has very good user reviews but below average expert reviews with an average overall rating of 67%, based on 165 reviews.
This digital camera is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer, better digital cameras are available. View the latest digital cameras 2018.
It has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Very small optical zoom
Has an image stabilizer
Ultra-compact, ultra-lightweight, stylish body \\this elegant little camera is in A totally different league in terms of compactness and lightness. measuring only 77 mm (3.1 in.) lengthwise, and 17.2 mm (0.7 in.) in thickness, it will fit into your pocket with room to spare. and its weight is less than 96 G (3.4 oz), so you might even forget it\'s there. but when you take it out, you\'ll be dazzled by its solid, high-quality look. the coated stainless steel body helps to reduce scratches, and the mirror silver model adds A unique polished look.\
\<br> intuitive touch screen puts easy operation in a small size \\four large icon-based touch buttons appear on the screen, so even novice users can easily master camera operations. just press the screen to access functions intuitively, including a shortcut menu to access important functions directly. you can also customize the home menu to your preference.\
