Pros: decent size, decent battery life, eazy to use, nice durablility
Cons: small screen
I got this camera for Christmas a fair while ago and I have amazed at the quality of photos, I carry it with me when i cant take the more expensive camera with me for just in case moments, and have often taken pictures that you would not have known were taken from it instead of my rebel. The only down side is that the shutter to protect the lens stopped working a while ago.

Pros: Bright LCD, Simple controls/menu, easy to use
Cons: Short battery life, slow & not good in low light & speed shots
In general the performance is good for the low price. Compact and easy to use and change settings. Little slow in "kids & pets and night shot settings". Mind your battery power always. Image quality is good (But not excellent). Enough for home, learning & picnic uses. Cannot compare the image quality in Camera LCD and in PC view, because looks better in camera LCD.

Pros: easy to use, Simple controls/menu, Lightweight/Portable
Cons: Short battery life, Flimsy Construction
I love the features, ease of use and portability of this camera. But, like many other reviews I've read, I had real problems with the shutter button falling off. Possible indication of lower quality materials??? Otherwise, it's a great camera.

I like the pictures, but it does eat batteries. Handling is very good, you can hold it very easily. I have gotten very good pictures from it.
