Button

Button:
"My problem is that it will not take even 2 pictures as fast as you can click the button, there is a very annoying time span between when you can take a second, third and fourth picture."
_
"Camera takes good pictures but there are some many features and small buttons that it is sometimes hard to understand and operate for my 81-year old mother."
_
"My biggest complaint is having the on-off button right next the shutter release."
_
"It has a decent zoom feature and it's very easy to use (there is a 'question' button on the back, how much simpler can you get?"
_
"There is a slight hesitation in some settings but you can find a setting that pretty much fires as soon as you push the button."

Lens

Lens:
"The only negative I've experienced is the lens cover occasionally sticking, but a little tap and then trying again seems to solve the issue."
_
"And I got a lens error message the second time I ever used the camera....waste of money."
_
"Here are some specifications for the A810:Sensor 1 2.3 (the smallest standard size)Lens Aperture: f2.8 (wide) to f6.9 (telephoto, very slow)Resolutions available: 16MP: 4608 x 3456, 8MP: 3264 x 2448, 2MP: 1600 x 1200, 0.3MP: 640 x 480This camera is capable of producing enormous images at potentially very high resolution."
_
"I kept getting a lens error every time I tried to zoom in on something."
_
"I was disappointed with the performance of this camera, it does not make sense to to incorporate a 16 megapixel rating to such a bottom of the line camera, only as good as its weekest link as they say, the lens on this does not do the high megapixel rating on this camera justice, the pictures were ok, maybe for low to medium quality disneyland shots..."
_
"fun lens options like fishtank and fuzzy edges for play."
_
"F6.9 supports a resolution of between 2-3 megapixels, given a perfectly made lens."
_
"For this camera, the sensor might benefit from a perfect lens if the lens were f2.6 or lower."

"The only real negative to me is the lack of instant-access controls and settings, with almost all of them being on-screen now."

_
"There is a slight hesitation in some settings but you can find a setting that pretty much fires as soon as you push the button."
