The Not so good
1. The shortcomings of the 24.2 MP sensors are visible at ISO 800 with pixel noise getting introduced in some of the photographs.
Agility and Speed
1. The 4D FOCUS system of the camera is capable of covering the entire width of the frame in a very short period of time without any lag.
2. With the help of f/2.8 center point which is available in the camera, the photos would be taken in a jiffy.
The Not so good

However, the lag is pretty less and it won’t hamper your entire experience.
The camera beats the industry average when it comes to the average battery life.
In a single charge, it was able to capture around 510 stills.

The battery display is included which helps you monitor the battery easily. In this budget especially, the camera is actually pretty good as compared to some of the other options.
