Summary: I got this camera as a gift and after 6 months only I get a zoom error and it won't take any pictures. Looking online this is a common problem with this product. Not sure what to do with it now.
Summary: The lens on this camera suffers from very noticeable vignetting (dark corners). Not just subtle light falloff, but major vignetting (dark grey corners). Be forewarned, this is not a problem with the particular camera I have, but rather a poorly designed lens. I do not recommend this camera.
Summary: this camera is quite small, easy to use, and has a big screen. wall charger works fast (1-2 hours for the initial charge) however, the flash is VERY BRIGHT, and washes out close items. it has a 3-4 second lag between pushing the button and taking the picture, unless you halfway depress the button to focus before you shoot (still takes a couple seconds, even then). also, it can't seem to handle sunny days, at least not on the 'auto' setting.
