Summary: 2Nd one I have owned takes great pictures and is virtually waterproof.I wish they still made them today.The first one lasted 4 yrs of intense fishing adventures in rain and snow virtually everyday and night.It takes great night photo's and the battery last for a month without recharge.
Summary: I own this camera for about 2 years. The problem is the lens cover slider track.The metal track has just worn away just from opening and closing the lens cover.Now the lens cover will not stay on the camera causing the battery to die.This is a manufacturing defect
Summary: I really liked this camera for the first year that I owned it, and then the slider (which reveals the lense) broke and now I have a really hard time taking pictures. If you barely bump the slider when the lense is open, it will think you're trying to close the camera and it will turn off. Also, the lense will slide open when the camera is in my purse and turn the camera on and off. This really kills the battery. Otherwise, I really liked the camera.
Summary: This is our first digital camera and, if the lighting is good, the pictures come out beautiful. Unfortunately with children, we do not always have the opportunity to adjust the lighting to get a great picture. When this happens, the pics ALWAYS turn out grainy or blurry (and the flaw isn't noticable on the LCD screen. Only after you download or print is when you see it).
Summary: The picture quality on this camera is impressive. Even after three years and many bounces on concrete. I must have dropped this camera at least 10 times and the thing is solid as a rock. The picture quality is unbeleivable as well as many people look at the 3x5's and say, "this isn't a digital" The only reason I gave it less starts is because it doesn't have a built in date feature, or a built in microphone.
Summary: I have had this camera since July 2003. Now I am about ready to buy a newer, different camera. Overall, this is a good camera for someone who wants a simple, easy to use, 3.2 megapixel camera. Being 3.2 mp, it gives great quality for 4 x 6 photos. If you are someone who wants a standard digital camera and are not intent on taking artistic photos in clubs, or high -definition landscape photos, then this is for you.
Summary: Pros: Weatherproof with excellent photo quality, Small design, easy to use, excellent resolution, great features, Stylish(cute), metal housing. Cons: Shutter lag is a little slow, No manual controls, Movie mode doesn't have sound, short video length. Summary: have to admit that this is the only digital camera I've ever owned, so consider all of this novice information. I just went into Best Buy and Curcuit City and asked, "What is your best compact model?".
Summary: I just bought this camera with these in mind: 1. price 2. shutter speed. 3. resolution 4. form factor The remaining characteristics were sort of secondary (but still important) such as flash memory type, zoom (zoom is a relative new technology so I'm not expecting much in terms of the zoom lens). So based on those, here are the pros and cons: PROS: 1. Nice and small. All weather is a plus.
Summary: First, the bad: indoor, no flash pictures are poor. We took about 60 pictures this weekend for my brother's graduation, about half inside with no flash, and only 4 of them came out okay. Even the "good" ones weren't particularly sharp when I reduced them to 800x600. We mostly took pictures of people; any movement on the part of the subject or the camera made the picture very blurry.
