Summary: We bought this for pictures on Ebay we love it for its convenience and it is light weight takes great pictures. Compared to other types of this ilk we have used, the color and focus at close range are uncomparable
Conclusion: 2.5 I am very disappointed with the camera. My 14mpx Camera takes much better pictures and is much easier to control features. It also has a light for video which this does not. I am most disturbed by the fact that it will not charge via the USB cable which almost all others do.
Pros: Bright LCD, Lightweight/Portable, easy to use
Cons: Missing features/settings, Poor image quality, Short battery life, Complicated controls/menu, can't charge with usb
Summary: I like the camera because of it convenient size, we use this camera for work situations. It has to function in all sorts of conditions many which are adverse its one handed operation makes it invaluable. The only adverse is that the lens function starts to bind and soon quits working.
