Summary: I used this camera at close range only for the best quality pictures as per the advice of someone's review and I concur. . the batteries will get used up VERY quickly, but I found that in spite of the warning that they are empty they will recharge if you turn the camera off for a while..
Summary: At first I was happy with this camera...decent (not amazing) picture quality, easy-to-operate, mediocre features (can't take a good shot when it's dark out, or move the camera too much when taking photos)...but I noticed that the batteries drained super quick.
Summary: I got this as a part of a rewards program, so I didn't know exactly what I was getting before it came, but I was hoping to have a cute birthday present for my almost 14 year old. When I read the reviews, I got nervous.
Summary: I have gone thru several digital cameras in the past few years. I had a $400 Nikon camera which decided to break on me 1 month after the 1 yr warranty. I had a Sony Cybershot (forgot which one) which lasted at least 2 yrs. But the new ones are not even close to the quality of the old ones.
Summary: I've owned a 3MP Olympus for years and really like it so I went with Olympus again. These 7MP pictures aren't as clear as my older camera, especially indoors. I did want a smaller, lighter camera and I did get that.
Excerpt: I got this camera as a replacement for my Fujitsu one that broke down after a few months. It was £99.99, and we only had to pay £10 towards this. I had to buy a new XD card as this one rejected my Fujitsu one, and that was only £15 extra.
Pros: Quality of pictures, the functions, durability, price
