Summary: I bought this camera for my daughter's 12th birthday. It looks pretty cool, the battery life is long enough, and it is easy to use. It does need a memory card. I would highly recommend it for being simple, well-built and producing very decent photos.
Summary: When I bought this camera,I bought a 4gb sdhc memory card,and rechargeable batteries for it. Then as soon as i walked out of the store I started taking pictures, didn't even read the instructions,which are pretty plain foldout charts and a little booklet that i haven't even opened. I was using all the features just to see how they would come out.
