Excerpt: I love that this camera has the ability to take multiple pictures at a time (particular setting). The picture quality is great with every picture taken, however, I have found that focusing on the subject is sometimes a problem. Takes amazing pictures outdoors and so so pictures at night. Battery life is outstanding, I know this is a problem for a lot of people with a lot of different cameras but this one seems to be amazing to me. Easy to load batteries too.
Summary: This camera is by no means a 'great' or 'top-of-the-line' item. However, my 4 year old absolutely loves having his own camera. It often takes extremely blurry pictures, and if you are not in strong lighting, I would highly recommend using another camera, such as the one on your cell phone, prior to attempting to take a quality picture with this. Also, those with shaky hands should stay away from this item, as any movement during shutter is easily viewed in the pictures.
Summary: I got this camera when Amazon had it for $50. For $50, it got the job done. Overall, it feels very cheaply built, and the pictures are not that great quality. Even though it has the MP's, it's the sensor that counts, and that's what I feel is lacking. The batteries were also a pain. I would rather have a rechargeable battery that I can slide into an AC wall charger than have to worry about buying batteries all the time.
Summary: This camera is small and neat. Although it's a 10MP it doesn't shoot that clearly. The flash has to charge which is a bit frustrating since it means long waits between shots. Convenient to carrry around because of it's size, so it's great as a 2nd (in case of emergency) camera.
Summary: Inexpensive plastic encases the camera but the picture quality makes up for it. No special battery charger is needed. The camera utilizes common AA batteries. This camera is intuitive and simple to use. I bought it for my 80-year old mother as a starter camera. Would be a good camera for kids, too.
Do not expect this camera to deliver DSLR-like output

Summary: I bought this camera with gold box deal for only $49. For that price, this is quite good camera. However, it has some weak points, you have to consider before buying. For reference, I'll be comparing this camera to my 5 year old Fujifilm Z5FD. UPDATE 27.06.2011: I've used 2pcs 2700mah rechargeables with this camera, and total amount of pictures taken equals to 430 shots, including 10 minute of video and about 5 minutes of picture reviewing. So, battery life is excellent!
Summary: Okay, I may be the only ignorant buyer here but why or why would this camera not come with a "required" item. Sure, they gave me two double A batteries because I really need them but hey, don't try to take a picture unless you purchased a memory card which is sold separately. How about you include the memory card and leave out the batteries? I can always find two double A batteries around the house.
