Summary: I've had this unit for over 3 years. After the first 6 months my husband wanted it, so he's been using it since. He is very rough on things and carries it on his belt every day. Although the markings on the camera are all but gone, the camera has survived and is still taking very decent pictures.
Summary: I hardly ever take this camera out any more, as I have a smart-phone now that takes up less space in my pocket and is also a phone, a computer, a calculator, and an alarm clock. It was a different era when I bought this camera. A more innocent time. A time when phones were attached to the wall, and computers took up entire buildings. Still takes good pictures.
Summary: I was looking for an extra camera to leave in my motorcycle and wanted one that used regular batteries instead of built in rechargeable batteries so I wouldn't have to worry about remembering to charge it regularly. I just carry a spare pair of batteries in the carrying case and I know I'm always ready to take pictures. Only downside is you will burn through a set of batteries in an afternoon of taking pictures at say, auto races or some such.
Excellent low cost camera, can't beat the price/performance

Summary: PROS: uses standard storage SD and SDHC, 9MP more than enough, 5X zoom, Durable materials, uses standard batteries, easy to use, price CONS: uses non standard PC connector(2012), a rechargeable battery would be nice, internal storage holds about 20 pictures Digital cameras for normal use are a ripoff in general now, this one is great at it's current prices though! If you have an average smartphone or camera phone(at least 5MP) you don't need to buy a digital camera.
Summary: Hi. I am doing confession and hoping for absolution of my sin. I bought this camera used for my wife. She wanted a smaller camera than the old 7.1 mp Olympus. It is marginally smaller and that satisfied her. We use E2 Lithium AA batteries and they last forever. I was using a Kodak ZD710 at the time and this cameras 9.1mp was a seeming upgrade for her.However , in reviewing the pictures in her memory I found quite a few with blurred motion.Badly Blurred.
Summary: I contacted the vendor and let them know the camera worked about one day and I either need it fixed or replaced. They called me up and said they would forward a new one that is one step better on the megapixals from 9 to a 10. I have not recieved yet but expect to shortly.
Summary: I bought this on sale for about $80. I wanted a camera that was easy for this not-very-technical girl to handle, but still do all I wanted it to do. I figured it out totally in a couple hours. The pics are really crisp, uploading and emailing them is easy, and even my kids can use it. I like the zoom alot, also. I don't know much about cameras other than the better the MP the better pic you get.
Summary: it was super cheap, it has been a great buy, the camera was packed in a blister and its got no holster but its been great, it doesnt have webcam feature but the panoramic is good and resolution is ok, will buy another one for my parents.
