Summary: I wanted a camera that runs on AA batteries so I can use the good quality rechargeable type that last a long time. I can usually shoot about 45 minutes of video before switching batteries but AAs are easy to carry so it works fine for me.
Summary: I bought this for my 12 year old daughters birthday. The camera is just as good as, if not better than my $300.00 camera. Pics are crystal clear and it has numerous settings that my daughter loves using. Cant wait to see all the pics she took on vacation with her grandparents!
Summary: i bought this camera to have an inexpensive, easy to use camera for a trip. It tried a few practice shots with it and got a "battery dead" message". Fortunately it uses AA batteries so we replaced them and took some extra ones with us.
