Summary: I bought this camera for my daughter for a Christmas gift. I did the research and for the price (at the time)this seemed to be a good camera. I thought it might be a good starter camera. Unfortunatley, the camera really does take horrible pictures. Any pictures taken inside, you're not able to see. It looks like they were taken outside at night. Even when there is plenty of sunlight, there seems to be issues with the picture quality. They almost look grainy.
Summary: I bought this for my seven year old son last Christmas because he loves to take pictures. It is a good camera for a child or beginner. The picture quality is not the best and the batteries do not last long at all. We purchased rechargeable batteries to save money. My son loves it and loves using the recorder it has.
Summary: I'm no photographer, but the "light level" was poor. Unless there was really bright light, I could hardly see the image on the screen. If I took a picture, the flash would go off, but then the image was horribly washed out. The camera also had a "plastic-y" feel. A couple times, I couldn't even get the camera to turn on. I suppose this was because I didn't finesse the button just the right way. ...not something I want to deal with. I retuned the camera and got a Nikon.
Summary: This purchase was a birthday gift to my granddaughter who truly loves it. She has used it continually since receiving it and has stated over and over again how please she is with my gift to her.
Summary: Although I kept the camera what I ordered was a 7 megapixel and I received a 5 megapixel. The camera itself is very easy to use and the menu items are easy to understand. This camera stores your pictures in it's memory so if you want a removable memory be certain to purchase this as well. Camera takes wonderful pictures and I recently purchased a printer with a PictBridge uploader which is why I purchased this camera.
Excerpt: My 35 mm camera pictures came out better and were more bright than pictures with this camera . Another issue that I had was that it was difficult and very dark viewing the pictures on the LCD monitor screen. I started to wonder was my pictures going to come out that dark. They did not but it was annoying looking at dark pictures on that screen. Sometimes they were so dark that I could not completely tell what I was looking at.
Summary: CONS: No optical zoom, odd picture color, long flash delay, no action shots PROS: Big display, cool silicone cover, CHEAP I got this camera two years ago on a Black Friday sale at Circuit City for around $80, then paid $10 for a 1GB SD chip from a 4 pack. Anytime I was in the picture I had a yellow tint, my girlfriend looked red. There is no setting for action shots. You have to be a couple feet away from an object if you don't want the flash to wash the image out.
Summary: You get what you pay for! Takes crappy pictures. You can't get closer than 6 feet to your subject or it's a white-out. Even on a tripod pics come out blurry. Take this money and put it towards a better camera.
Summary: Beautiful outlook with skin protection included which I like, light wight is easy to carry, many functions in camera which are good enough for daily use. A simple way to learn to use digital camera with its User Guide in order to attain common concepts that we need about how to take photos.
