Summary: I purchase this one to collect 'antique' digitals. The camera is enormous, comparing to modern ones. It looks sturdy and well built, but for frequent uses, I have to really upload it and try it out. I am a collector only, currently are more interested in collecting Sony's Mavica series. I have basically 10 of them. For the first time user, I highly recommend Mavica CD350 for the best money and quality.
