Summary: I haven't really gotten around to using this camera, so I can't say anything about the picture quality. It looks decent enough and suits my needs in portability. I mostly like how this camera is concealable and I am able to take pictures whenever I want.
Summary: In summary, it doesn't take pictures as well as my Nikon F. But, I could use it strictly for travel and I love its size. And by the way, the pictures really are pretty good.
Pros: If you don't use the zoom in picture mode, it is a great point and shoot digital camera. As such, it can yield nice photos. If you put a 4 gigabyte SD card into this camera, you have 12000 pictures you can take. More importantly, you can get many pictures while traveling and a whole bunch of movies. I recently spent a week on a sailboat cruise and took movies to try it out. I couldn't believe when I uploaded the movies to my computer and played them that it also had s...
Cons: You must wait for the green light while it stores your pictures. You can't rush it.
Summary: I have purchased five of these to give to my technicians to capture pics of equipment on the job sites. I prefer something a little nicer for my personal use, but for basic picture taking, they work quite well and I will purchase more as the need arises. The good thing for me is that if one is lost or stolen, it is not a major tragedy. Uploading the pictures was almost effortless with the included cable. There is not anything that I really do not like about this camera.
Summary: My 5 year old grandson loves taking pictures but of course his parents don't want him using their camera except on special occassions under strict supervision to avoid damage to the camera. I bought this camera for 3 main reasons, price, durability and the size of the screen. At a price of under $50 even if it were damaged within a few months it wouldn't be a big loss. The camera was afordable for my purpose.
Summary: I am a photographer, so I understand all the features this camera has. I purchased this for my 7 year old son for his birthday, figuring it's cheaper than the disposable cameras I've been getting him occasionally. It isn't. The battery life in this thing is barely 10 minutes! I keep setting the camera on certain features to give him the best possible color and clarity, but every time you turn the camera off, it goes back to default.
Summary: Being that I "repel technology", I really looked far and wide before purchasing a digital camera. This is probably the easiest one I have ever used. You are able to pretty much pop the batteries in it and start taking pictures. It is very compact and easy to slip into a side purse pocket or a pants pocket with ease.
Summary: I got this camera a few days ago and it was a very fast delivery! The camera came in perfect condition and i am very well satisfied with the whole delivery in general. I was so anxious to get this camera and when i finally got it i automatically fell in love with it although i had some trouble learning how to work it at first but i officially got a hang of it and its definitely worth the money. The camera looks really expensive, and the picture quality is GREAT.
Summary: For my purposes this camera very well suits my needs. Although a tad confusing at first, it's similar to my Sony 'point and shoot' camera (the one that uses floppy disks for storage). So I more or less relied on my intuiton to use this camera. What helped reduce the confusion was for me to download the user manual (PDF) which is more comprehensive than the quick start guide included with the camera. While waiting for delivery, I studied the manual.
Would have liked it if it lasted...not meant for kids

Summary: I bought this camera for $40 for my 7 year old daughter's birthday. She wanted a camera and after using her little kids one so much, we decided a cheap real one would work. Out of the box (well, the blister pack) it worked great. The camera took some great pictures...clear and crisp. I was quite impressed. Then, all of the sudden (within the first few days) we noticed that every picture was blurry nor matter what we did.
