Summary: I am pleased for the most part I feel the person selling this should have informed everyone that it was an older model. I had problems finding a memory card for this item due to the fact that it is older. But I did find one and it takes excellent pictures.
Summary: don,t know how it works seller sent it without a memory card so i have been unable to use it until i find out which memory card it takes i gave him a good rating and wish i had not done so he was in hospital so it took three weeks to get the camera the whole thing is a bit dissapointing .
Summary: I bought this camera to have an economical zoom for pictures in the marshes of southeast Georgia. Kayaking can destroy an expensive camera quickly. I like the simplicity and ease of access of controls. Very good picture quality for an older model. I also have the dock for this camera which keeps the batteries charged and ready to go. Overall a better deal than losing my newer and more expensive cameras.
