Summary: I bought this so I could have a camera with the same megapixels as my iPhone 4s... thinking I could get the same quality photos (similar was my lowest expectation/hope), without carrying my valuable phone with me when I go to a third world country this week where I will be doing some research and need a camera to take detailed pictures of data I collect (fairly close up shots). I was wrong. This is an 8.2 megapixel camera, but it is NOTHING in comparison to my phone.
Summary: The flash does not work, and that was not disclosed. Therefore, you are limited to where and how you are going to use it. The battery needs to be removed from the camera to charge it; inconvienient. If I knethis, I would not have purchased it.
Summary: I have always loved everything I've ordered on overstock.com, however this camera was ordered as a birthday gift and once the birthday boy started playing with it, we realized that it did not work. The zoom was broken. I am replacing it through overstock.com and hope the replacement works better. Not sure if it's a refurb issue or not. Cross your fingers everyone!
