The physical technology in this camera is very impressive. It takes good photos, with nice detail, and is reasonably easy to use once one gets used to it. Unfortunately, were I to rate the software on its own, the software would get 1-star. The chief drawback is a key missing feature: there appears to be no way to delete existing photographs except to reformat the memory card. Really? How can this be? Surely i have overlooked something. If so, I haven't found it yet. I've been using it for about 2 weeks, but less than I otherwise might due to software awkwardness.
Awful little piece of gear. Software not ready. Broke my fingernail attempting to get micro SD card in. Scanty instructions - mostly inaccurate drawings in lieu of real translations. Was very disappointed. The idea is good but I think they rushed it out too soon.
Great for fun and maybe serious photography for some people. Light weight and responsive without lag. I use it mainly for fun and instant camera in my pocket. Overall great product to have, I will be going for the higher model soon :)
Thought it a great idea and in time it will be but not just yet.
I have always searched for a "pocket" camera that would give me near-dslr quality without the bulk. It has arrived...nearly...in this product. By itself, I found the camera to function quite well. The bluetooth connection to my iPhone, however, tended to be a bit spotty. Thus, instead of being able to pull out of a pocket and shoot, the two devices have to synch first adding time to what might be a lost opportunity in a great shot. So, still some work to be done, but a very good start.
