Versatile and rugged

  • Summary: Good as Video Camera and Great as a Camera, Need a tripod in low light or Zoom role. ONE bothersome problem - the battery compartment lid tends to pop open if you aren't careful handling it. You'll need aa 8 memory card if you want to video a ballgame though.

  • Summary: After several sessions with the instructions and considerable trial and error I got use to basic use of this camera. Its not exactly the old Brownie point and shoot but you can get basically good shots with a good deal of patience.

  • Summary: This is a very good quick and easy digital camera. I have since bought a DSLR but find when I go for walks I just grab this and the photos come out great. Fits right into a coat pocket.

So pleased.

  • Summary: Instead of buying the newer, much more expensive Canon Powershot, I went with this one. And I'm so happy with it. Takes great pictures, is small, and didn't cost me all that much. Yay!

a bargain

S. Iverson, Amazon
14 October 2011
  • Summary: I took this camera out to the desert and submitted it to a week of very dusty, harsh conditions. I bought the camera because a) it was pretty cheap and well reviewed b)it uses AA batteries so I wouldn't need to charge in the wild c) the size was acceptable With a good set of rechargeables the camera easily met the factory claims for pictures. The start-up is a bit long, but that was fine. Video does produce a reasonable quality product, but the compression algo.

Good buy for the money

Eric Dunsker, Amazon

  • Summary: This purchase replaced a similar camera that was stolen. I've always been happy with the picture quality and ease of use of this camera for the cost (and in this one cost significantly less than the one I lost). It's slow between pictures (though you can speed things up by eliminating the display of a review function. It also is not great in low light level, but for the price it's a great buy.

Nice little camera (you get what you pay for)

  • Summary: I bought this camera knowing about it's battery limitations. But it takes AAs Come on now!!! Over the years I've grown used to the fact, point and shoots don't take good low light pictures, so I wasn't expecting a lot. Very happy with the results. So price to performance ratio is unbeatable. If you have to take low light pictures, use a tripod and some noise removal software. Coming back to the battery life.

Excellent First Camera

Rob, Amazon
11 September 2011
  • Summary: This is my first digital camera. I settled on it after reading the full Editor's Review at cnet.com. They liked the quality of it's photographs better than some more expensive cameras. It's a budget camera that takes sharp photos. This camera has very good macro capabilities, with or without flash. I find it useful to photograph things before taking them apart so I can, of course, reassemble them.

Decent camera for just $70

Admin_Dude42, Amazon

  • Summary: I needed a "throw-away" camera as I did not want to take my digital SLR with me to college. I am biased about Canon, but they make very durable and versatile cameras from my experience. This little guy is cheap, but does produce decent pictures. Be sure to get rechargeable NIMH batteries because this does eat the alkalines and lithium disposables are too expensive.
