It's not working like my original one

carol, Amazon
28 December 2014
  • Summary: Can definitely tell it's used. It's not working like my original one, is slow and clicks loudly, like it's not going to work for a long time.

although the pictures come out pretty sharp if you catch the subject before it starts ...

Cherri Trahan, Amazon
15 December 2014
  • Summary: It is what it is, an inexpensive camera. Too much of a delay when pressing the shutter button, although the pictures come out pretty sharp if you catch the subject before it starts moving. This is a good starter camera for kids.

Great Quality Pictures, Terrible Battery Life

Atli Hafsteinsson, Amazon
7 May 2013
  • Summary: This is a comfortable, easy little camera that's very straightforward to use. Picture quality is very good and it's also possible to shoot some short video footage. Having said that, this is the most voracious battery-drainer I have ever owned. Just the other day, I put two fresh AA batteries in the machine. About a total use of twenty minutes later (on and off over a few days), the camera wanted me to change the batteries.

Denyse Roberts, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this camera for my 10 year old daughter for her birthday. She loves it and take great pictures, she snaps everything she see's. The good thing about this camera is , it takes great pictures in the day time. As long as you have light, this camera is good to go. This camera is an out door camera because you will get your most used from outside.The camera is light weight and works with 2 double A batteries. The bads things about this camera are the following: 1.

OK camera for a child or beginner

J. Greer, Amazon
6 July 2011
  • Summary: If you find a good deal on this, it might be worth it for the non-serious photographer in your life. The camera is small, sturdy and pretty easy to use. I bought it for my daughter to use, but honestly, she says the pictures are just as good from her iPod, so she uses that more. The battery life is terrible, even with rechargable batteries. You can get about two hours' heavy use with this and you do have to change batteries.

Flimsy metal casing

bob kupor, Amazon
8 February 2011
  • Summary: I had this camera only one week before returning it. The designers foolishly designed it so that the required AA batteries are spring-pressed against the flimsy "door" (the one that must be opened to insert the batteries). Part of this door was visually protruding from the camera body by 1/6th inch within a week. Also, this camera is more expensive than it seems, because the AA batteries you've got to buy add up with time.

Pretty good camera

cg97, Amazon
21 December 2011
  • Summary: All in all this camera is pretty good for what you pay for...the pictures come out mostly OK (and are best in conditions with the most sunlight). It's very easy to use, simple just to get out and take pictures whenever. The photos are usually in focus and clear except in low-light conditions when they can often blur!
