4 of 5 Nice little camera but lacking important features July 26, 2019
Reviewer: Jonathan Scruggs from Oklahoma City, OK United States  
Once I tweaked the image settings, this camera produces a very clean sharp image. The colors look great and it performs extremely well in low light.

The only catch on this camera is there are no manual controls for exposure. The included lens is a fixed aperture, so obviously no control there, but the closest thing to manual control is shutter priority. Which in that case, the gain is still automatically controlled by the camera. I would think this could be fixed with a future firmware update, but in the meantime, I sent the camera back.

If the lacking exposure features were added, I would definitely pick up one of these cameras.
