Summary: This camera has its ups and downs. It works good for my needs. Watch out when using the flash as it tends to drain the battery more rapidly than not.The HD mode is pretty good, but its sound recording is not as good as it could be. When I went to a concert, there were lots of pops and snaps recorded. It probably did not help because I was in the front row practically next to the speaker.
Summary: This camera is as simple as it gets! It also has a "Portrait" setting that "beautifies" the subjects' skin--swear it makes a difference!! I got it to go to Europe and not have to charge the batter--this one uses two double AA's. Very happy with it so far, although some of the photos are blurred--but I'm convinced it's me and not the camera!!
Summary: This camera worked pretty well for about a year and a half. It doesn't take amazing photos but they are decent. It works best in situations where there is a lot of light. The sunset mode it terrible- pictures always look better using the regular mode but they look nowhere near as good as the sunset (or sunrise) does in real life so if you like to take lots of sunset or sunrise shots I would shop around a bit more.
