Wonderful camera


For the price this is a wonderful compact camera. I used it to take pictures of bands at the Austin TX SXSW. I was able to just slip it in my pocket when I wasn't using it. The only complaints I have is that the battery is a little combersome to get in...

Price and quality of pictures

Sepnd more for a better camera


This camera does the trick for most outdoor shots with the sun at your back but does not perform well in low light conditions or with the sun in your camera's face. The flash intensity is to not high enough. Indoor pictures all have a yellowish tint....

Inexpensive, size

Picture quality is just fair
