Pros: durable, Lightweight/Portable, Simple controls/menu, easy to use
Cons: Short battery life
We got this as a gift and have used it for over 5 years. I love the controls as they are easy to use. However, the battery life over the years has gotten shorter and shorter. I have dropped this thing countless times and can't believe it's still in working order. I'm moving on to a higher mp camera, but I want to keep this around for backup, because it's a good little camera.

Pros: easy to use, Simple controls/menu, durable
Cons: Heavy/Bulky, tiny lcd
I've had this camera for 4 years, and apart from a few random glitches, it has performed solidly, producing some pretty nice quality photos for its low 3.2 megapixels. In comparison to other digital cameras these days, the screen is tiny (all that space for the controls is really not necessary), and the overall camera is bulky and thick. Nevertheless, it performs well, as evidenced by its continuing ability to shoot great shots even in its older age. Getting a memory card is almost a must, as this camera will only hold about 14 pictures or so, and far less with videos thrown in.
