Excerpt: I like taking short movies and this is a great camera for it. The rechargeable battery lasts long enough for my use. The viewing glass has a crack in it I hope this doesn't stop the use of the camera, I'm having to much fun with it
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Never Need To Buy Batteri, Small / Compact
Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS, It's a very poor pic quality, my first cell phone with camera (remember those) had better quality. I wish I had saved the box and receipt, but I bought it for my trip to London,,,ended up using my I-phone after taking a few crappy pics with this thing!
Summary: Two things I did not like about the camera - One: The screen is tiny and the icons do not go away that are on the outside of the screen which makes it very hard to see what you are taking a picture of. Now granted we are in our 60's so our eye site is not the best. I would definitely recommend this camera for a teen because they have excellent eye site. Two: There is no place other than the screen to see what you are taking a picture of. Otherwise it's a good camera.
Summary: I bought this for my mom, and it stopped working suddenly. Plus, the screen is supposed to be touchscreen, but it happens to be press-as-hard-as-you-can-screen. The settings and picture quality: poor. Two stars for the fast shipping. But it is indeed a very cheap product. Wouldn't buy it again.
Summary: Needed a camera to take pictures of my growing son. Was given a budget of $50 by the wife to get something. Was pretty impressed when I found this camera and on top of that, it was a touch screen. The camera arrived quickly. The pictures are so so. I'm not impressed with the quality of the pics, especially without the flash.
Summary: I got this camera to keep it at work place to record or take pictures for any incidents or car damaged. it work just fine but in low light the pic quality is very grainy. If there is good light or flash is set the pic quality is good. The touch screen response isn't that great so don't expect much, however at the end you get use to it. Over all I will recommend this camera for medium quality pics or other things, not for like your son grad or wedding family pics.
Excerpt: I bought this as a gift for my nephew (he asked specifically asked for it). It's not what I would have chosen for the money but the spec seemed reasonable and I'm not the one who has to use it!
