Avatar for Jim McCarthy Jim McCarthy (2:38 PM, March 23, 2015) are disappointed it's plastic?? All cameras in the p&s catagory and higher end cameras are made of a polimer plastic and have been for 20 plus years. You obviously have never shot with this camera if comparing it to your cell phone. And you complain about mechanical push buttons..huh?? Laughable as many higher end cameras and p&s enthusaist cameras have manual buttons what are preferred to touch screen control and even those still use manual buttons too. Reading your post makes it clear you know nothing about cameras or photography.

I opened the box to find the contents so poorly packed that the CD was warped. The initial impression of the device was that it looked and felt cheap. (hence the $199.00 cost). Everything was plastic. Instead of a touch screen it had old, mechanical push buttons that felt like they would pop out of the camera if I pushed them too hard. The quality of the picture wasnt much different from what I get on my cell phone. The digital zoom was fuzzy and unstable. (worthless) I suppose the good aspects would be that when it breaks, your not out of much money. However, Im not sure about you, but I do not have $199 to throw away.

I think APS-C sensor is writen mistakenly with this camera. Kindly review. See this link

With this massive zoom it would be difficult enough to hold it steady even WITH an eye level viewfinder. As it doesn't have one, it would be about as much use as a chocolate fireguard to me :).
