Editors Didn't Like

  • Basic continuous shooting at full resolution, Modest 230k resolution screen, Minimal control over image quality - little if any tweaking, Record / play switch less intuitive than a plain play button
  • "Intelligent zoom" is just another name for digital zoom, Continuous shooting not as quick as the competition, Screen appeared overly bright at times, Noise noticeable in shots, higher than expected
