I think that this is a great camera and has all of the features that I think are critical: rechargeable camcorder battery, video out, MPEG video capabilities and built-in filters and effects.

Only a 2.1 Mega pixel, but it worked wonderful for my inexperience. Great for point and shoot. Compact and nice big LCD display screen that flips open and shut. Great for the beginner in digital photography.

this camera works well for me because I have just to concentrate on the compostion of the image and colors. I prefer to paint than making photos.

I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT MY CAMERA EXCEPT THE NIGHT SHOTS AS THE DISPLAY HAS NO LIGHTING AND YOU HAVE TO BE VERY EXPEIRIENCED TO USE IT AT NIGHT.

great basic point and shoot camera. I have taken some good shots with this one although the 2.1 megapixel is not great for detail

Good, but "old" point & shoot. Great Carl Zeiss zoom lens. Limited manual controls.

camera is very user friendly the adjustable viewfinder is quite flexible and allows for many difficult shots to be made with ease.

For what I use the camera for, it's a great deal. I don't plan on anything lager than 8x10 and my shots work fine for that.

Took a lot of good shots with this camera. Lack of a viewfinder made framing shots in direct sunlight difficult.

I absolutely love this camera. The only drawback is the lack of a viewfinder which makes it difficult to aim on sunny days. The adjustable screen more than makes up for it, though as I can take pictures from many different angles without moving.

This was my 2nd Digital Camera and quite a step up from the first "Cheapy" I had purchased. It took great pictures but was limited on functionality. However a great digital camera for the "Point and Shoot" folks out there.

I love this camera .
If you want anything bigger than an 8x10
look somewhere else.
It takes great clear images,
its user friendly,
and its easy to carry.
