Summary: Purchased this camera for work purposes. Pros: Good picture quality (14MP) Simple and fairly priced Cons: A bit slow between pictures Not very sturdy After purchasing and using this camera for a short time, I am convinced there are better options out there. I rated this 4 stars because it functions well and does everything it should in a capable fashion, but from personal experience I know there are better options out there at this price point (Panasonic's Lumix models...
Summary: I bought this for my daughter who needed a new camera. I have a less expensive model which my company bought me for work. She has only very positive things to say about the camera. It does not suffer from the "lag time syndrome" of a lot of inexpensive point and shot cameras. She has been able to take some wonderful photos of my grandson. How well it will hold up is something only time will tell. I will comment later after the camera is six months old.
Great for a "take everywhere, do anything, and not worry about the cost of it" camera

Summary: Hey, for $79.98 this is a great no worries camera. Yeah, the casing feels a little cheap, it's lacks the heft of more quality cameras, but when you just want a small point and shoot to capture the random things that happen in life, this suffices. Like other reviews said, it does struggle with certain lighting situations. Also, you have to play with the settings a bit to ensure that pictures are in focus, but, it just depends what the scenario of the shot it.
Summary: This item was purchased at Amazon, July, 2012. Read the instructions before use. I did and there were still a few glitches. The charge light went off indicating it was fully charged but then when I unplugged it, it read "Do not unplug USB cable." So I would plug it back, the light would come on for about a minute and go off again (it did this about 5 times).
Summary: I researched many cameras for a replacement for my aging and bulky Sony digital camera. I was looking for features comparable to my Sony as I didn't want to downgrade. I found this camera to be rich with features and a few that others didn't have. Size was a big factor and this does not let down. I would buy over and over, highly recommended. Only thing that held back for full 5 stars is the physical location of the flash.
Summary: This camera was a Christmas present for my son. Its a great starter camera, easy to use, tough and water proof. Camera is easy to use because there are only a few buttons on back of camera to worry about. Only thing needed is a memory card.
Summary: This was a sub $100 camera, and it sort of feels that way. Picture quality seems OK. At times the picture seems grainy, but that may just be the LCD repsentation on the camera. I am glad we made this purchase because we've gone through a lot of cameras. This one works as an easy to carry, worry free camera.
Summary: This camera rocks my socks! I love it, it looks awesome with its black, sexy, chicness. It has awesome effects like punk, fish-eye, panorama etc. It takes clear pictures inside and out with effects like indoor, sunset, fireworks, cuisine, night, sport, and landscape. It feels light but also feels durable. It comes with the cables that you can hook it up to your TV and see the pictures on your camera on your TV, and videos...that is really cool!
Summary: I bought this camera because I liked the idea that could take panorama. Alas, it has to be done with the software, not in- camera. But takes excellent indoor pictures without flash, and that is certainly a plus.
