Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Focus

Focus:
"Add a second or two for it to try and fail to focus."
_
"The manual focus isn't the best but is very good."
_
"Yes, the manual mode is great for a point and shoot, and it does allow you to manually focus... sort of."
_
"If you want a camera that shoots raw, has all the multiple settings, good autofocus AND shoot well at night, go spend a couple grand on a professional one but if you want to be able to just spend $250, then quit complaining that it's not the best thing in the world."
_
"The autofocus is pretty good also."
_
"My favorite is P, which gives good control over flash, exposure adjustment, and focus modes if I want them, letting the camera set the rest."
_
"Focusing isn't all that fast, but the image quality is good and the HD video is decent but the zoom will blur out on occasion on distant shots."

Image

Image:
"So it does have very good back to back pic taking speed but is not really friendly about it."
_
"I'm a little disappointed but this camera is excellent and most people should be very pleased with both the photo and video quality."
_
"Telephoto (420mm) image quality degrades a bit."
_
"I put the pics up at work and people ask me what camera I used because the pics are great."
_
"I took pics of my daughter at the park and when I printed the pics they were amazing."
_
"The 15x zoom lens is fantastic and the image stabilization is a real asset."
_
"With the thing in one of the manual-oriented modes, jpg on fine and sharpness enabled, wow, very nice pics from a camera with this price tag."

Lens

Lens:
"Overall ended up returning over a combination of (1) and (2) above in the bad - since the lens cap just randomly pops off and there is no way to add a protective filter our lifestyle would definitely lead to a damaged lens."
_
"George Eastman is probably turning in his grave because Kodak is unable to make a halfway decent lens cap anymore."
_
"However, two things were very annoying: the lens cap was slightly warped, so it didn't fit well and the HD video files are still in the MOV format, which requires a conversion program to make them useful in the non-Apple world."
_
"Clearly unsafe to me for the lens when walking around in the ON mode and absolutely annoying to have to remember to take off the lens cap before turning on every time."
_
"The 15x zoom lens is fantastic and the image stabilization is a real asset."
_
"* Lens cap does pop off easily, but I think it was designed that way so that if you turn on the camera without first removing the lens cap, the extending lens pops the cap off harmlessly without damaging the internal zoom lens motor."
_
"(2) No threads to on lens to add UV filter to protect this really nice glass."

Price

Price:
"Beyond intermediate, you have to start considering the compromises you're going to be making for the price (but this is something anyone who has ANY photography skills should realize)."
_
"Very good camera overall, for the price!"
_
"This is a great camera for a person who wants a full featured camera at a reasonable price."
_
"First thing is, when you take it out of the box, if it feels a little cheap, well don't be surprised."
_
"I'll reiterate this a couple more times in this review, but the price is really good for this camera."
_
"With the thing in one of the manual-oriented modes, jpg on fine and sharpness enabled, wow, very nice pics from a camera with this price tag."

Quality

Quality:
"Not only was it a great deal, but the picture quality is great."
_
"Yes, the quality isn't the best, but it's still in high resolution, and better than any other digital camera movie mode I've ever used... and it's still CHEAP."
_
"Completely defeats the purpose of raw :(True, the pictures are not a very good quality at night as other cameras, so don't shoot at night!"
_
"Crappy quality due to zooming so much(come on, no camera is really meant to take great pictures while zoomed all the way), but sharp."
_
"Go to: [...]My goal isn't to take professional quality videos using this camera, but I was a bit disappointed with the clicking sound."

Setting

Setting:
"Now I'm not a pro photographer, so maybe the PASM settings would have solved my problems in certain situations, but I feel that's too much work for a camera that presents itself as Smart."
_
"If you want a camera that shoots raw, has all the multiple settings, good autofocus AND shoot well at night, go spend a couple grand on a professional one but if you want to be able to just spend $250, then quit complaining that it's not the best thing in the world."
_
"It can be used in any light, gives info about the settings as well as the image, and saves power."
_
"so if you have patients with this camera it could do very nice pictures but you have play with lots of setting to do it."
_
"Understanding the setting manual is easy."
_
"I'm still playing with the Scene Mode settings and find the full automatic setting to be perfectly fine in most cases."

Speed

Speed:
"I just bought this camera and am frustrated by the slow processing."
_
"While the camera software and computer software are mostly self-explanitory and easy to use I would not recommend this camera if you desire shots with any kind of speed."
_
"It was slow to operate, IS didn't work well, and it's auto mode selection was very bad."
_
"So it does have very good back to back pic taking speed but is not really friendly about it."
_
"First, the push-to-capture speed is pretty fabulous for a digital camera."
_
"* Processing speed is not a problem with current firmware."
_
"The Z1015 zooms in and out pretty fast, but I find I can tap lightly on the + - control to get what I want."
_
"Focusing isn't all that fast, but the image quality is good and the HD video is decent but the zoom will blur out on occasion on distant shots."
_
"I find this camera to be easy to use, fast enough to get shots of my toddler, and it takes nice video."

Video

Video:
"Go to: [...]My goal isn't to take professional quality videos using this camera, but I was a bit disappointed with the clicking sound."
_
"Here is the problem: I have set up the camera in order to take videos of myself fiddling and sometimes the image goes in and out of focus."
_
"I only have one complaint concerning the camera and that concerns taking videos."
_
"I'm not sure if these problems have anything to do with my lack of knowledge or if these sorts of problems are standard regarding videos taken from digital cameras."
_
"However, two things were very annoying: the lens cap was slightly warped, so it didn't fit well and the HD video files are still in the MOV format, which requires a conversion program to make them useful in the non-Apple world."
_
"It takes great photos and videos, is pretty light, and is easy to use."
_
"Good:(1) Took good pictures and nice quality video."
_
"Focusing isn't all that fast, but the image quality is good and the HD video is decent but the zoom will blur out on occasion on distant shots."
_
"I find this camera to be easy to use, fast enough to get shots of my toddler, and it takes nice video."

_
"Zoom feature is wonderful."
