Summary: Bought one new. Loved it. They have a problem w/chip burnout. Bought two more used ones after the first one died because we love em. They DO have a delay in the shutter which causes some missed shots. Try to shoot just BEFORE you want the shot for best results. Better zoom than many cameras costing more.

Summary: I purchased this camera knowing that it was inoperative, and after receiving I thought it may be an easy fix but found that camera would cost more to repair than the value of a workable like item. I then sold this item for parts to someone that used the parts to repair another like item. End of story.

Summary: In the years before I owned my first SLR camera, I went through a range of digital compacts, many of which featured a long ranging zoom lens.

Of course, the average consumer wouldn't touch a camera with only three megapixels nowadays, but the device was responsive and well made, featuring a range of manual options.
