Bought this camera after looking at reviews and was not dissapointed. Good camera & good price. Takes good pictures and is easy to use. Only down side is that it didnot come with a camera case or memory card.

Great budget camera


This seems a great camera for the lower price range. It has a metal case, rechargeable battery and decent picture quality, although I could see no difference to pictures from my 7.1 Meg camera.
