I purchased this particular camera without really knowing too much information on it or any of the features that it was capable of. I had an older camera that had gotten dropped a few too many times and decided to quit working for me and with my love for taking pictures for almost every event in my life I needed another camera that was a decent price right away. I purchased this one on a popular shopping network a few years ago just because it was such a great deal seeing as how it was offered with a little kodak printer as well. I can't really say much about the printer since I've used it maybe four times since I have gotten them, but I realized that the camera alone was a great buy. It too has been victim of my constant camera dropping, but it has withstood it with a few minor dings on the paint. Its still works great and is very simple to use. There are neat lighting features you can use if you are taking pictures in a weird lighting and a video feature as well.
