It's a good point and shoot camera. Not given to much camera shake. Quite hardy.

It provides decent point & shoot quality photos and has a good selection of non-auto modes til I get more experienced with using my own settings. It's easy to navigate. The LCD viewing screen works horribly in the sun so my pictures are often 'guesstimates' of the framing since the viewfinder isn't an exact representation.

Good Starter Camera. Not an SLR however and would like more resolution.

This was a great camera- but better ones came by. I was so excited to jump in the water to get great sea turtle shots that I forgot to take off the leash so the waterproof case could seal completely. Yup.

Takes great outdoor shots. Indoors...flash just doesn't cut it unless you're really close in on the subject. Also, I wish the optical zoom was better. But for a 2 1/2 old digital, she's doin' just fine.

It is extremely easy to use and takes some very quality pictures. Sometimes it is tricky, when playing with the features. But, the great thing about it is that it is digital and you can play all you want and it does not cost in film.
