Photo

Photo:

_
"This camara takes terrible photos."
_
"The macro mode is not so great and all my indoor photos are yellow tinted without flash or white washed with flash and is very exasperating."
_
"Pros:~ Good color variety~ Menu features are easy to navigate, with many optionsCons:~ If flash is not used subject does not hold *perfectly* still, photos are blurry (even in a well-lit living room)."
_
"This essentially means that, if you want to take photos during a group event game night, you're going to be flashing everyone in the face or you'll have poor, blurry photos.~ Panorama feature is TERRIBLE."
_
"Ok, I know that Point-And-Shoots are not made for perfect Macro photos, but my last Coolpix, the S6100, took closeups a hundred times better then this one!"
_
"Takes good photos."
