Summary: Bought this camera when it first came out. It was broken the first time I turned it on. It took photos on its own. I took back to where I bought it. They laughed. So I put it on the counter and turned it on. So after a minute the flash opens on its own and off we go taking pics like a champ.
Summary: My original 8700 was rained on, dropped, battered, and bounced everywhere in my backpack. Yet it lived many years before it gave up. I loved that you didn't have to "line in" to deal with your chips, allowing me to carry extra chips while traveling and take thousands and thousands of photos.
Summary: It is cool to use and quite attractive in that my friends are busy asking to know where I got this camera, from, please if you have more available at this same price do bring it to my notice, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
