My first and last

Senorita B "Person", Amazon
25 April 2008
  • Summary: This was my first digital camera and I loved it. There were a few issues. Any problem with battery life can be solved with rechargable batteries which feed the camera 4x as longer then regular batteries. A few of my friends commented that it was hard to focus, but once you get used to teh camera it gets easier. Kida of a bulky thing. But it worked for me for two years.

Looking to replace this guy

Jeffrey Pittman "Jeff", Amazon
25 April 2006
  • Summary: Great little camera with lots of features at a good price unless (a) you carry it in your pocket, in which case the very fragile LCD display will crack (HP sent me a refurb because this happened very early on during my ownership of the camera) and (b) you want pictures taken with the flash to be properly exposed. They're consistently, staggeringly underexposed, not usable.

Use digital camera batteries and NOT everyday batteries...

Karen, Amazon
3 April 2006
  • Summary: Use digital camera batteries or the rechargeable camera batteries and quit whining that digital cameras eat batteries! Standard batteries are not meant for digital cameras. Left on, the LCD will also lesson battery life. My family gets decent, clear pictures with good color from this camera -- that I bought for for one of my kids for $80. My son has taken many pictures of his friends -- many indoors at his school and none of those pics are blurred or out of focus.

Below $75, a good backup camera

Reuben Gathright "rgathright", Amazon

  • Summary: I recently had the chance to use this camera for a day at Sea World Orlando. Based upon my experience with several other cameras in this category here is my review: Pros: 1) Excellent zoom from such a small camera. 2) Records MPEG video, makes DVD authoring easier. 3) Digital zoom is also very good. 4) Camera can be carried in the pocket all day with no damage to it's rugged frame. Cons: 1) Consumes batteries.

Good digital camera, but not an upgrade.

Jason Cox, Amazon
4 December 2004
  • Summary: Here are the great features of this camera: * Easy for point and shoot. * Very light and small! It easily fits in your pocket. * Great full color LCD viewscreen and easy to understand buttons. * Wonderful shutter button and "video record" buttons (some cameras require you to twist knobs, pull levers and shift gears to go from picture taking to video recording, this camera makes it a snap!) * Video Recording will fill up all the space you have.

Me gusto para empezar

  • Summary: En mi opinion la camara no es mala. Tiene sus cualidades como que es excelente para sacar paisajes, similar a otras profesionales. Y tiene sus contras que es en oscuridad o noche, o en luz artificial donde hay que sacar varias fotos para lograr una buena. En macros tambien le sucede lo mismo, pero si uno tiene paciencia puede lograr tomas sensacionales a una distancia de 30 o 40 cm, como mariposas y flores. Eso si es muy cierto, las pilas las consume rapido.
