This was the second digital point and shoot I have ever bought. Overall it's decent if you don't take a ton of pics. I find it's hard to get it to focus, it's automatic so not like you can adjust that on your own. The pictures tend to come out more blurry on this camera unless the person doesn't move at all, and I mean not even to breath! Image Quality Images come out okay but it's hard to get it to focus on an image, I usually get pictures that are slightly blurry and out of focus. Performance Performance is decent. This is more a camera if you want something compact and affordable. Ease of Use Super easy to use, not many buttons and functions. You won't even need the manual to figure this camera out. Durability It is very durable, my kids have dropped it numerous times and it's fine. Battery Life I do have to charge this camera a lot and I don't even use it that much. This is my back up camera to my nice one so even just sitting unused the battery dies quickly. Portability It's very small, can easily fit in your purse or even a larger pocket.
