Summary: I got this camera for my son for Christmas this year. Its small, light and takes decent pictures. I paid around half of the suggested retail price, which is about what I wanted to spend. And I ended up spending less than I would have to get a camera designed specifically for children. Its rechargeable, but he's taken over 100 pictures and the power is only down one bar. I wouldn't make this your go to camera necessarily.
Summary: manual stinks. doesnt give enough information. even going on line can't seem to find too much more than what the manual says. hard to figure how to delete pictures, if there is internal memeory.. this was a gift for a friend who doesn't own a computer so it is difficult for this person to figure things out.
Summary: I needed a camera. I am obsessed with taking photos and if anyone reads my reviews on cameras it is obvious that I take a lot of photos. I have used cameras that use double AA batteries for yrs and never had a problem I simply carry extras. Once I switched to cameras using the rechargable Li-on batteries I simply bought two and keep them charged and when one goes dead I switch it out.
