Nice camera

By

from Grand Rapids, MI  -  Photo Enthusiast

This was a great camera to take on vacation. The pictures turned out very nice. It is small and easy to stash in a purse/bag. It has many pre-programed modes to choose from (beach, low-light, fireworks etc.)The only thing that bothered me was the flash. After taking a picture with the flash, you need to wait before taking another for the flash to "charge". This made it difficult to take two pictures in a row without making everyone wait for the flash to recharge. Other than this, I like the way the camera performs and the quality of the pictures it takes.

I love my new camera!

By

from Greenville, SC  -  Casual Photographer

I've only used my new camera to take pictures of my flowers so far and I like how it has worked. I'm still learning how to work it. So far, so good! I have no complaints.

Good value, plenty of features

By

from Wisconsin  -  Casual Photographer

I bought this camera before taking a 8 day backpacking trip in Glacier National Park. I like that it uses AA batteries, so I can take as many sets of batteries along as I want. Not a great zoom for wildlife shots, and slightly bulky for backpacking, but takes great pics for the money and overall a great camera.
