"However, I am disappointed in Amazon - I purchased these camera with just enough time to get them here by Christmas - then I log on this evening to look for something else, and find that they have already dropped the price by $11 and Christmas isn't even over yet - that's a $22 cost for me."
_
"Review the actual product, when you complain about amazon or if it didn't come with a case or sd card, that doesn't educate a buyer on the camera's performance."
_
"This is not worthy of Amazon's quality and is the firsttime I have been disappointed by anything I've ever ordered."
_
"The camera seems really cool, and that it has 16 megapixel , it just add to my overall satisfaction with the product, Thank you amazon for selling such a cool object."

Battery

Battery:
"I learned this the hard way after plugging in the USB to retrieve photos and leaving the camera on where I came back a few hours later to a dead battery."
_
"When he opened, it looked like it was a returned one which was repacked and sent to us and it also had a damage near the battery opening."
_
"Only problem I had was the battery kept going dead; but I liked the camera too much, so I decided to spend an extra $10 to buy a new battery."
_
"The only negative thing I can say is that the battery doesn't stay charged as long as I'd like it to."
_
"My main complaint is you can not charge the battery without taking it out of the camera and putting it in the charger."
_
"My only complaint is that it has a rechargeable battery, so the charger has to be carried along."
_
"Amazing sharp photos with a battery that last for days! "
_
"The battery option is perfect as it is easier to find DD batteries than other energy sources."

"really good camera for the price and rechargeable battery which I liked"

Image

Image:

Light

Light:
"Feels cheap and flimsy all light plastic feeling."
_
"The problem appears in low light conditions."
_
"The quality is good with the optical zoom and the digital zoom can be from good to not the best but remember it all depends on light conditions, distance and if you zoom the picture up, you need to be absolutely STILL, no shaking or movements."

Memory

Memory:
"The product description fails to mention that the camera ships WITHOUT a memory card."
_
"Two strikes against Canon for not being clear that you need to by a memory card separately and a BIG strike against Amazon for the same thing."
_
"The biggest drawback, for me, is that it has NO internal memory."
_
"Also, I took the memory card from her old broken camera and put it in this one."
_
"The bigger problem will be when I get the memory card and the proper USB cord, what happens if I don't like the picture of the camera or how it functions?"

"The only problem I had and it was my fault, It didn't come with memory."
_
"Great pictures and lots of memories."

Menu

Menu:
"This camera and I are just not communicating; way too hard to figure out .. and the menu stuff doesn't disappear from the display...."
_
"Menu is a bit hard to figure out, in particular switching between shooting modes."
_
"The color is great, works great, has lots of functions, great menus, nothing to complain about."
_
"The menus are not very user friendly, but then again I have not used it much."
_
"I lost all the previous pix when I did this.. After taking a few more pictures I got the same message only this time I was not able to choose format from the cameras set up menu...I don't know why... it just would not allow me to select format .. buy a coolpix by nikon.. they are very user friendly .Now I have to return this un usable piece of junk to a target store very far from my home."
_
"I don't find the menu as user friendly as my previous models."
_
"Good lens for the money, but the menu is very complicated and difficult to learn and manage."
_
"Even the little ding noises it makes when you select menu options are really nice :)"
_
"The color is great, works great, has lots of functions, great menus, nothing to complain about."
_
"My answer to this is somewhat paradoxical in that once you have figured out all of the complexities of the menu functions and how to set it up...it becomes one of the best quality and easily operated digital cameras of its kind."

"Sporting 16MP does you no good if the quality of the photos aren't good, you will just end up with very large poor-quality pictures that will occupy (a. k. a. waste space on) your Hard Drive."
_
"But for a cheap pocket camera it takes decent cell-phone quality photos in daylight, usable flash, and has the familiar Sony camera interface."
_
"It always took clear photos and I never had to worry about working too hard to get the perfect shot."

USB

USB:
"The bigger problem will be when I get the memory card and the proper USB cord, what happens if I don't like the picture of the camera or how it functions?"
_
"The camera is okay but it did not come with a USB cable for some weird reason and you have to pull out the battery to charge (wish I would've have know that) other than that it works good and is user friendly."
_
"My only complaint is about the charger - wish it had a USB charger instead of external battery charger"
_
"Is was terrible on christmas when this gift was opened and there was no USB cable, it only includes the battery and a charger."
_
"FYI, some people complained because it doesn't contain a USB transfer cable, it's easier to just take the SD card out and put it directly in your computer to transfer photos."

Zoom

Zoom:
"Seller is fine but this camera didn't take good zoom picks"
_
"My only problem is that it cannot zoom all the way."
_
"It may work if you need a cheap camera that takes OK pictures without using zoom but beware that if you enlarge the image on your compute screen you will see that there is no detail in the enlarged image."
_
"The 5x zoom lens is inadequate for anything over 20 feet away if you want to capture any details of your subject matter, such as textiles."
_
"The only problem I have with it is that the zoom is not very good, so you cannot take pictures that are far away."
_
"The quality is good with the optical zoom and the digital zoom can be from good to not the best but remember it all depends on light conditions, distance and if you zoom the picture up, you need to be absolutely STILL, no shaking or movements."
_
"It has great pictures and the zoom is a very nice feature."
_
"Picture quality and zoom are very good."
_
"I love the zoom feature."
_
"It has served me well, but this A2500 is a great camera with its 5x optical image, stabilized zoom with 2."
_
"I've had this for a few months and have shot only about 1000 photos, but it has provided me with what I needed-a good digital camera with some sort of stabilizaiton, zoom, and at least 10MP."
