It takes decent pictures although I wish the resolution count was a little bit higher.

Very good 2 Megapixel camera. Not so good for taking low lighting subject. Good macro mode for taking close picture. Color balance is a bit warm but this can be adjusted in Photoshop or other photo editing software.
