Focus

Focus:
"Point and Shoot step-up, loaded with features, wifi access, huge zoom, nice view finder feature, auto focus not perfect too often, but overall great camera for the price."
_
"I got this and had problems with the lcd being grainy and I sent it back to the factory and they said it checks out ok, hard to focus pictures when you cant tell if its clear or not, very unhappy with it."
_
"If you zoom in on something only a few feet away to get a good close up, it doesn't focus well."
_
"Outdoors, it is best to focus on the brightest part of an object to get the right exposure."
_
"I should also mention that the Macro mode on this camera is amazing with the ability to focus on objects as close as 1 2 an inch!"
_
"The biggest issue is the auto focus, it hunts a lot and is pretty slow."
_
"I got this and had problems with the lcd being grainy and I sent it back to the factory and they said it checks out ok, hard to focus pictures when you cant tell if its clear or not, very unhappy with it."
_
"PROS:- Huge 60x zoom lens- Easy vertical shooting ability- Includes EVF with diopter- Good battery life- Easy access to some manual controlsCONS:- Slow autofocus- Image quality is just average- Easy to tip over from being top-heavy- EVF requires manual switchHalf of all the photos I take are with my smartphone, because let's face it, it's just so convenient and the quality is more than acceptable."

"Very unhappy with this photo."
_
"All too often I've been frustrated with only having a cell phone camera and missing out on pics because of a lack of zoom...Not any more!"
_
"What's to like:- An expansive 20mm wide end (great for panoramas)- An extreme 1200mm full zoom (60x)- 16.3 pixel resolution from a BSI CMOS sensor- OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) and a moderately fast lens- Relatively compact package for what you get- Well laid-out controls & sturdy construction- Advanced DSLR-like dual grip design that is very comfortable in both vertical and horizontal formats- Useful presets for basic shooting situations- Macro mode lets you get as close as 1cm- Full HD movie mode w stereo sound and other options- 360fps slow motion capture (but at only 176p x 128p)- HDR and Panorama modes- A large 3 rear hVGA screen with fair resolution- A very respectable battery life of about 600 shots- Good Wi-Fi & NFC connectivity- The built-in flash is adequate for many situations- 8 fps continuous shootingThe not so good:- A tiny and limited 1 2.3 sensor = sub-par image quality- Lens could be a bit faster- No eye sensor on the rather low resolution EFV (though it has a diopter adjustment dial)- No GPS for travel enthusiasts (not a deal breaker for me)- No manual zoom- Fixed LCD (no tilt - bleh)- Unimpressive overall responsiveness for the price, though not bad after start-up- Longest shutter speed is one second- Proprietary battery- In-camera battery charging only (no external charger available even through 3rd parties)- JPG only filesI put it WB through it's paces."

"The quality of the images are sharp and clear, the video is great too."
_
"I am very much satisfied with the picture image quality and I started enjoying this WB2200F camera at our family tour last month."
_
"Image quality is good, although it is necessary to let the camera do a brief pre-focus at the long end before pressing the shutter button."
_
"Indoors, this camera is great using the built-in flash---pictures show great detail."
_
"Set on Auto Mode and let it go, or use its many features to manually enhance your photo, wide-angle, telephoto etc.... Great timer built in so you capture everyone in a shot also can control the shutter from your iPhone."

"the price was good on the camera."
_
"The point and shoot does not cut it but I do not have the desire to spend SLR kind of money and I want to be able to stay on auto (auto = the camera figures all the settings out for you depending what scene you are pointing the camera at) and only switch to manual when I want to, not when I have to."
