Panasonic LUMIX DMC-ZS25K Black 16.1 MP 20X Optical Zoom Digital Camera HDTV Output
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Best point & shoot I've ever owned 08/31/2013

This review is from: Panasonic LUMIX DMC-ZS25K Black 16.1 MP 20X Optical Zoom Digital Camera HDTV Output

Pros: The LUNIX DMC-ZS25 Does EVERYTHING! Pics are as good as I can achieve on my Kodak Z990 MAX and very close to what I get with my Pentax KX DSLR.

Cons: For me - none! I don't miss what the upgraded DMC-ZS30 offers: an 18.1 megapixel sensor, integrated Wi-Fi, 5 Axis correction and inclination correction capabilities, plus the 920,000 dot touch screen for an extra $100. All else functionally is the same for both the ZS25 and the ZS30.

Other Thoughts: This camera is only 1.1 inches deep and it fits comfortably in shirt pockets, which is what I was looking for. I've been a Photoshop user since 2000 and I process ALL my pics in Photoshop. With the ZS25 there's not much to improve, since the camera takes outstanding photos. Make sure though that you thorougly read the advanced user's manual, which you can download from the Panasonic web-site.

HGST Deskstar 7K1000.C 0F10383 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I bought this drive on a promotion and the price was RIGHT! Works flawlessly.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I've been building PCs since 1985, thousands of them! Hitachi makes great drives. Took me 10 minutes to add this drive, including formatting it, to my design-oriented PC where I run Photoshop and Illustrator. Have had it now two weeks; runs as expected. Note that many of the very negative reviews are by folks who have little understanding of PCs. The defect rate of modern mechanical hard drives is about 4.5 sigma (1 failure in 100,000 drives. If you take all the negative reviews here at face value you'd think these drives had a defect rate of about 3 sigma (1 failure in about 370 drives). If that was true Hitachi would be out of business within weeks!

Kodak Z990 Black 12 MP 30X Optical Zoom 28mm Wide Angle Digital Camera
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Fantastic Camera - buy it now 02/09/2012

This review is from: Kodak Z990 Black 12 MP 30X Optical Zoom 28mm Wide Angle Digital Camera

Pros: Does everything that Kodak's specs for the Z990 says the camera will do. I read the "extended (on-line)" camera manual thoroughly and have NOT taken an inferior photo. Do yourself a favor and READ the manual. If you set the Z990 to "auto" you have, in fact, wasted your money. High-end cameras with myriad manual settings such as the Z990 DESERVE much time devoted to studying and practicing what such cameras can do!

Cons: Even with a class 10 SDHC card the camera "seems" to be slower to process a photo than other cameras in its price range. However, the "burst" mode does speed things up to "OK." For me, since I take landscape and portrait photos, this "con" is a minor annoyance. After all, the "speed" thing is quite subjective and much dependent on the photographer senses.

Other Thoughts: You can turn OFF the LCD display by pressing the "EVF/LCD" button on the top left hand side of the camera looking at the camera back. Doing this brings up the "electronic view finder." I prefer the EVF option in lieu of the LCD alternative in almost all instances of picture taking.
