Summary: Takes good pictures and the batteries last a long time (and recharge in a hurry) - I'd recommend this to anyone who wants a dependable, light weight camera that is easy to use and takes good photos.
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: 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.
