Summary: I ordered this camera to replace an exact duplicate I'd been using for 6.5 years. The flash stopped working in my original and I was quoted $95 to have it fixed. I was very happy to find this camera on Amazon, as I'd shopped around for new cameras and did not find anything I liked. This camera takes quality photos without the complicated frills and nonsense that newer cameras have these days.
Summary: Flawless performance for years now and I take a lot of pictures. The battery still recharges well. Picture quality is great. the Price was right. Best feature is the fact that the lense does not project from the camera when zooming out. Makes it easy to take pix undetected. Slide cover keeps lens protected. Drawback is that it's so small that its hard to hold, but I overcame the situation by attaching a tripod base to it.
Excerpt: I have tried 3 or 4 different cameras to get the right digital camera - I wanted nice zoom, and clear pictures - with red eye reduction, anti-shake, and great lighting adjustments. I wanted something easily automatic, but I wanted to be able to make some manual adjustments. This camera really does all of that! I LOVE how the lens doesn't stick out when you zoom!
Excerpt: This is a nice little camera with 8 mega-pixels and lots of customizable settings. My only complaint is that it is easy to accidentally switch the camera off: It has a sliding cover for the lens that also acts as the on/off switch and if you put your fingers against the plate with just a bit of pressure, the camera flips off for a moment.
Best digital camera I've ever bought and great price!

Excerpt: I bought this camera because of the high number of megapixels. I have taken a few photography courses, but didn't have the money to buy a really professional camera, but as far as I'm concerned, my pictures are very good quality from this amatuer camera. I have a 2gb memory card in my camera and have it set on the highest number of megapixels and have hundreds of pictures on my card.
If you get the chance to buy one of these - Grab it...!

Summary: I own two of these cameras and absolutely love them. I bought a third as a gift for my Mom to give as a Mother's Day present. The features are too numerous to name. One of the reasons that I like this camera is that it has a built in flash which doesn't normally come with this type of lower end camera. The only reaso I say "lower end" is because of the price and not the features or ease of use.
