Excerpt: This camera produces great quality photos for the price tag. I am always getting comments from family and friends on how great the pics turn out. The only bad thing about this camera is the battery life. It tends to die very quickly so I would suggest going for lithium batteries. I am very happy with this camera despite that, you cant beat the price for the quakity of pictures it produces. It also takes good quality video.
Summary: Very impressive for the time! I purchased this camera nearly 5 years ago and it was still going strong up until it was stolen from my house in early 2012. This is a very sable point and who camera with good quality images. Easy to use, and easy to upload. You can get cameras with better pixel rates and features on the market for sure, but this product is great for getting the job done. Definitely recommended as a starter digital camera, great for kids or teenagers.
Summary: This is a wonderful camera. Purchased it from Sears. Actually, I ordered a different camera, and because it was backordered, Sears offered me this camera instead, which was better quality (more bells and whistles) than the one I ordered. I noticed right away that the batteries would run out quickly. I recommend Rayovac Hybrid rechargables, or any recharchables that are lithium ion batteries. These can last for over an hour in the camera on a full charge.
Summary: My experience over the last couple of years seems to jibe with what other reviewers have said. The first unit I got stopped functioning properly after a couple of weeks. I forget the exact problem, but I took it back to the retailer (K-Mart) and they provided a new one. This has worked fine. Battery life is the major issue, and I think it's a defect. Sometimes the most powerful and expensive lithium batteries won't take five pictures, flash or not.
Summary: I've had this camera for a couple years now. My mother-in-law gave it to me for Chanukah after my daughter was born. It's a pretty good camera, the pictures are clear and the video function is really nice. The problem for me, is that it's slow, and it stops if there's any movement. If that's unclear, keep in mind that most of my pictures are of my kids, the oldest being 2 1/2.
Summary: This is a very good camera. WHEN IT WORKS!! The thing will freeze and eat up all the life of the batteries. However... when it works it is a wonderful camera. It works very well and takes great photos. It's very fun because you can add stickers. DO NOT TAKE VIDEOS. That just sucks the juice out of the battery like a vacume cleaner. All in all it's an OK camera and I can't stress enough the suckish battery life.
