I purchased this camera as an impulse purchase while at a drug store on a vacation trip. I hadn't packed a camera and I was wishing I had something other then my cell phone to capture some of the memories. It was fairly inexpensive, so I didn't mind spending the money even though I was not expecting much. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the pictures. It took decent outdoor shots in a variety of lighjt levels and also had a nice quality indoors. The down side is that it was a little slow, so if you were trying to get multiple action shots, you would likely not be able to. Overall, if you are looking for an affordable camera for every day use or to get a first camera for a child or teen, this is a great purhase. Image Quality I was pleasantly surprised at how clear and great the images turned out considering the low price point. Performance It takes nice pictures, but it is slow. You sort of need to be ready to take your shot about 2-3 seconds before you want your shot. Ease of Use Point and shoot. No messing with tons of settings. Battery Life Decent battery life considering the pricepoint. Portability This slim and sleek design fits easily in your purse or pocket. Very easy to tote around as an every day camera.
