Summary: I bought this for my wife, who likes the small size, because it fits in her purse easily. She also likes the red color, because it is easy to find if you lay it down somewhere and are looking for it. It takes good photos also. I recommend buying it used, so you don't have to pay full price. By the way, the multi-function button on the back is very easy to control if you just lift the edge of it with your fingernail until you hear it click.
Summary: I bought this to take pictures of household construction work, Torture to work the tiny joystick button. Kills your batteries after about 3-4 flashes, pictures are of poor quality on any setting, distance and or set up once you figure out how to work the buttons. I read some reviews on this that stated this was a poor camera, but I figured for what I was going to use it for why not.
Summary: It's cheap, but that's where the positives end. Very poor picture quality just makes the size meaningless. Yeah, it's very small and lightweight, but the idea of a camera is to take pictures...and in several different conditions, the pics we took with this camera were grainy. No matter ho wmuch light we had, still grainy. Very disappointing. I used it for a while, then sold it!
Summary: Don't buy this. I saved up for it during my freshman year of college because I really wanted a camera and I was so disapointed when I received this. I recently gave it to my 8 year old brother to play with. Its too crappy to pawn off to someone on ebay. Dont waste your money. Eats batteries before you can even take a picture and the flash feature is terrible, along with the quality of the pictures.
Summary: Do not..I repeat... DO NOT waste your money on this thing..it is garbage!!!! you have to carry around a stack of batteries just to take more than 5 pictures. There is a delayed second flash so unless you tell everyone your taking pictures of to wait for both flashes your going to get a lot of blurry faces. The picture quality is disgusting and impossible to edit. You can't take any close up pictures with the flash on because all you would see is hair and eyes..
Summary: It is inexpensive and an excellent digital camera for beginners. Many of the reviews were critical because the users expected it to take very high quality images. It takes good pictures and is durable yet sleek and thin. I would definitely recommend this to any beginner photographers, or people interested in a reliable and inexpensive product.
Summary: We bought this for our 12-year old in December 2005 and just threw it out after taking 0 acceptable photos with it. We already have 2 other digital cameras in the house and have used them extensively for two years so this was not a user problem. 1. 2 crucial buttons fell off in one month. We used a paper clip instead. 2. All photos we've taken have been orange-cast, dark, and blurry. 3. The on-off switch is malfunctioning.
Summary: I like this camera, and it is very cute. I love the fact that it is "the size of a credit card", and it fits in most pockets. The problems that I have with it, though, are these: 1. It takes the flash about 10 seconds on average to get ready 2. When the flash is ready, it isn't very effective and usualy makes the picture worse 3. The pictures end up being blurry unless you keep your hand perfectly still 4.
Summary: I have no idea what the other people are ranting about. Sure, this is not the top of the line camera, but hey, you didn't pay a lot of money for it, either. You get what you pay for. And for what I paid for, I'd say I got a pretty great deal. The camera is really portable and takes great picture, now I really can't go anywhere without it.
