I had a set of these I used in a classroom environment, so they got a lot of wear and tear by teenagers. Of the ten I bought a few years ago, only one is still functional, and part of that is broken. What I like: It's not just point and shoot. You can manually set aperture, shutter speed, and ISO - it's a great camera to learn on for that reason. What I don't like: these cameras ate several of our SD cards. It's possible the cards malfunctioned on their own, but it seemed like these particular cameras were the cause of the problems. Also, a number of them just completely stopped working, and the one we have left that's still in circulation - the end of the lens broke off. These definitely weren't as durable as I had hoped. The image quality is okay considering how old this model is, but if I were buying a camera today I would want more pixels. I do like that the batteries are double A's - no need for expensive proprietary ones.
