Camera worked fine. Decent phone for basic picture taking.

  • Summary: Decent phone for taking basic pictures. Nice little camera. If you take lots of pictures you may want to purchase a higher grade camera.

Not worth retail value

Anon, Amazon

  • 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.

Good as a 2nd camera for mobile purposes

Chris, Amazon

  • 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.

Knock-about digital camera with a lot of features

  • Summary: For the money, this is a fully-functional camera that beats your phone-cam. Good for youngsters, for outdoor photography, for knocking about. Not ideal, but a good backup camera.
  • Pros: A lot of good features for a very inexpensive digicam
  • Cons: Slow, no included SD card, no rechargeable battery, no viewfinder

Do not expect this camera to deliver DSLR-like output

Rocket Scientist, Amazon
20 June 2011
  • 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!

Good picts, poor quality, annoying operation

Dan, Amazon
31 July 2010
  • Summary: I have to say this before anything else - this is a $100 camera. You get what you pay for. The good: It's 10M Pixels It's $100. Takes nice pictures (in good light). AA batteries. Fits in my hand very well. The "Auto" mode makes it easy. The bad: Cheap construction (to the point of damaging Canon's reputation of quality products in my opinion). No image stabilization (but.... it is a $100 camera...) **"Charging the flash"...

  • Excerpt: На 600 грн покатит, но не забудьте про качественные, недешовые акумуляторы.
  • Pros: Дешовый
  • Cons: Снимки как цена - очень любительские, как на нормальной камере мобильного телефона. Постоянно разряжается быстро и требует при этом очень мощных аккумуляторов. Сменил уже две пары акумуляторов потому что при небольшом снижении их мощности пишет что разряжен и не фйоткает. Требует качественных акумуляторов, таких как сони(купил последними - пока всё нормально).
