Summary: I ordered this camera because it was supposed to be easy to use. I had a stoke 2 years ago and is difficult to do some things now. I odered it a few months ago and I still have not gotten it working.

Summary: I had only taken four pictures with this camera when I dropped it. It landed on it's side on concrete and gave an error message when I turned it on. I have a Sony that is six years old that has been dropped dozens of times and still works fine.
