Summary: i bought this after dropping my old Canon camera and this one is great, has a great zoom feature and now has rechargeable battery so i no longer need those annoying AA size batteries. very compact and easy to use.
Summary: Although I didn't purchase my camera via Amazon, I did pick this up in September of 2010 and it's by far one of the best (and most durable) point & shoot cameras that I've ever used. Granted it doesn't have all of the bells and whistles that other cameras may have, however it's most certainly a reliable contender with it's simple, yet efficient interface. Despite what some of these reviews have said, the pic quality is stellar and the battery lasts for quite some time.
Summary: The only problem with this camera is that it gets complimented on the pictures that I take. More than one friend (who take pictures regularly) has said, "Your camera takes good pictures." OK, it does. I wanted a reasonably priced camera that takes good pictures. After reading many reviews, I decided on this one. I would like more zoom, and maybe something "easier" to operate, but this does the job nicely. Keep those compliments coming.
