  • Nice Upgrade

    I had it's baby sister for a few years and gave it to my Granddaughter, Emma. This is great for a point and shoot, it pretty much does everything for you if you are just a home photographer.

  • Not up to par Camera disappointed.

    I agree with the other review about the quality of the pictures. The pictures are very grainy. I have other cameras so I not a beginner. The camera itself is a nice camera but cheaply made very small and plastic made material.It says you receive a 32gb memory card. I received a 16gb card? It's going back not a good value at all.

  • So Going back !!!!

    This camera is a big bummer !!!! It does nothing as raved by hosts. First of all, is not delivering 20 MP quality picture, not even close!... actually my IPhone X takes way better picture than this so called powerful overraved camera + it came with the adapter missing. What a waste of time!!! Next time HSN puts on air a product say it like it is, do not adveriser not existing features. This camera doesnt live up to the 20 MP and high quality promised. I dont recommend this item at all.
