Consumer Reports

The July issue of Consumer Reports magazine identifies the five biggest complaints about digital cameras based on responses from 13,000 readers surveyed.

The top 5 complaints:

1. Slow camera misses the perfect shot
2. Distant subjects are very dark, even with flash
3. Blurry shots when using maximum zoom
4. Batteries that die too quickly
5. LCD screen unreadable in bright sunlight.
