Summary: I lost my camera identical to this one in an airport. I didn't discover it till the next day when I got home. I liked it so much that I got on line and searched till I found the same camera. I took a picture from the fence at the White House with the close up, and could see the face of the guard on the porch.
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.
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.
Summary: In my younger days, I was a professional photographer. Of course there are cameras for taking superb pictures. Want to hoist around a tripod, perhaps a view camera, an umbrella, interchangeable lenses, lights? Hey, what happened to the landscape or the people or the big game? Changed, or disappeared, or wouldn't behave, or stay still, or game over. And driving in my car, wait, there's a once-in-a-lifetime chance to get that special shot, maybe sell it to a newspaper.
Summary: THIS IS MY 4TH PURCHASE OF THIS CAMERA. I HAVE GIVEN IT TO MY TEENAGE GRANDCHILDREN AND THEY LOVE IT, AS DO I. THE EASE TO OPERATE, THE GREAT PICTURE QUALITY, AND THE PRICE MAKE THIS A GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING. JHO, lAWRENCEVILLE, GA.
Summary: Purchased this camera for my teenage daughter to photograph wolves. The zoom was incredible, and one of her close-ups photos was posted on a website. That photo beat out a number of photos taken with more expensive cameras. She's also taken indoor photos for a local animal rescue site, and the photos are perfect. I'm amazed at the negative reviews. The camera beats my Sony Cybershot for quality.
