    Best camera I have

    I have three really good cameras I have the Minolta which I got from HSN I have a Canon and I have a Fuji the Minolta is the best camera have for the simple fact it has WiFi and you can be on the other side of the room and take pictures of your family and friends and being a photo at the same time it also has a Wi-Fi built into it so it makes us in wifi hotspot I love this camera my wife got it for me as a gift I've been taking pictures with my cell phone also but I love the fact that now I can be in the photo at the same time I would recommend this to anybody who is looking for a good camera the only downfall is it is hard to find a wall charger for the battery other than that the camera I give a 5-star rating and I would recommend this to anybody I am so happy that HSN had this on sale thank you

    very nice camera for the price

    I'm used to using a much more expensive camera but I bought this one just for a extra camera when I don't want to carry a bigger one. So far I am very happy with it. It does what I need.

    like the camera

    This camera takes great pictures and video and zooms great! I received this package and the memory card was damaged and you cant use the camera without it. I got a $12 dollar refund for a 8gb and bought a 36gb for same price. I am having trouble with sending my pictures wifi to social media but i was able to send pictures from my phone to messenger then to FB. Still working things out. I dont know much about cameras so this is harder for me. I do like the camera and keeping it.

    What MORE could you want for the $$$

    First off, Let's be Clear and Concise:This is NOT one of my $2,500 Cameras ( or one of my $5,600 Cameras.) I bought it on Sale for under $200. It works as stated. This IS a 20MP Camera, I used a higher rez/capacity Memory Card. Good Software. Where, can ANYONE get MORE for this price... I don't understand what else you could want for this price... GET IT !
