    Rated 4.5 out of 5★ by 23reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by A very top-shelf point and shoot Simply put this one of the best point-and-shoots you can buy on the market. It's quick, loaded with features, and the picture quality is some of the best I've ever seen out of a point and shoot. It performs admirably in low light. Especially using the Superior Auto mode. Only thing I would say is that the color saturation is a little lacking in some instances and some of the pictures look a little "cold". I would even venture to say that at its best, the photo quality is slightly better than the Canon Powershot S90, although the Canon has a definite edge when it comes to color saturation in photos. The battery life is mediocre. I also wish it had a longer zoom range. The camera is also quite compact in size so no problems there.It's not perfect (no point and shoot is). And I'm of the opinion that if you want DSLR quality, you should buy a DSLR and not mess with a point-and-shoot. But if you want sharp photos and decent performance in a very small package that doesn't require a lot of tinkering - this is you camera. 10/12/2010
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by I am very pleased with this camera. It does absolutely everything it promises to do and it performs all its functions extremely well. The no flash low light photo qualities are amazing! The controls are simple and everything you select will show up with an on screen explanation as to what you have chosen to do. The camera is almost the same dimensions as a pack of short cigarettes although its slightly thinner in profile than a common box of them. This is by far the very best camera I have ever owned! It all comes down to the quality of photo’s the camera can produce for you and this one is 5-STARS! You will get what you pay for and much more. Tremendously pleased! 11/27/2010
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Love the camera! I bought the camera little over year and happy with the camera. Takes great pictures especially when i have it on soft skin mode. Makes you look picture perfect. Great HD videos. Also takes great pictures of my pets, which is a plus. The only bad thing about the camera is the battery life. Very little usage and already shows low battery or low battery then full battery. I still recommend this camera. 03/24/2012
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Overall we're happy with it! This is the best point-and-shoot we've had. The flash isn't great, it definitely looks a bit unnatural with the flash, but without it it actually takes pretty good pictures in low light. Pictures taken outdoors in the daytime are great! We're also really happy with the video, and the sound quality is good as long as you make sure not to cover the speaker with your finger during filming. We have noticed a strange sound if you zoom in or out while filming video. 11/08/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by I LOVE IT! It has great effects like speciall settings for pets and face makeup kindda thing which coul get rid of your pimples and dark circles :D my mom love tht effect. But i love how it could blur the backround, i thought it was rreally amazing.The BAD thing about it is tht the zoom in and zoom out buttons are too loose..its so easily zoomed by itself...which i hate cuz it alwasy automatically zooms while im tryin to take a pic. Another thing i tht the pictures cme out brighter than the original item which make it look like it photoshop, but i dont really want tht because i like realistic pictures. And theres only a playback button to see pictures but i wanted it like the original how you could click it back and forth, somehow i feel like the button might someday break really soon. Last the power button is also too easily clicked, so its too easily opened which wastes battery life ...But i hve to say this camera is rlly good it takes great pictures compare to my other cameras. <3 10/02/2010
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Very nice point and shot I recently had to replace my old point and shoot camera and decided on the WX5. The camera is very nice, it starts very fast, nice compact size, very easy to use, the quality of the pictures are excellent and the HD video quality is superb. It shoots very well under low light, both for video and for pictures. Very impressed with the ISweep function (panoramic), it was able to adjust to the different lights levels in the frames. My main subject is my 2 year old son so I need a camera with a fast shutter response and the wx5 is fast, however don’t compare it to an SLR.I only have to complaints about the camera. 1) The battery doesn’t last a very long time when shooting video. Let’s say that you go to a wedding or are in a cruise, one battery will not last the entire day. The WX5 can replace an additional camcorder because of its excellent video quality but you will need spare batteries. While talking about the battery, the battery needs to be in the camera for you to be able to download the pictures/video using the included USB cable. So you if you only have one battery you can’t charge the battery while you download the pictures (unless you have a media reader). 2) No Manual Mode. I have an SLR and my previous Point and Shoot had manual setting but the WX5 does not, however the ”Scene” mode is very good and may cover most scenarios. I kind of missed being able to tweak the aperture but if you are like most Point and Shoot users you will not miss it.As an overall I will be “benching” my Flip camera and only use my wx5 for all my needs. For the price there is nothing that comes close. 11/11/2010
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Amazing Camera I pre-ordered this camera, and was surprised when it came 2 weeks early. I am absolutely amazed by the picture quality, it is far superior to my canon camera. It is small enough to fit in your pocket and yet it feels extremely sturdy and well made. I would recommend this to anyone! 08/30/2010
