This is an older model of the point and shoot camera variety. It has been dependable and has worked well ever since getting it over 7 years ago. I don't use it as often anymore with quick smartphone cameras now, but I do occasionally break it out for certain situations and it works well if you want a clearer picture and the ability to zoom. Its not the greatest camera in the world anymore, but it will do. Video isn't bad either. The various settings make it good for certain situations. It is still better than many smartphone cameras, though some more recent ones are beginning to eclipse the quality. Image Quality Pretty good and clear, zoom is okay but don't expect to zoom in too far for a clear one. Ease of Use Point and shoot. Doesn't get any easier. Durability Feels sturdy and has lasted a while, from about 2006 and still works just fine. Battery Life Can take plenty of pics before needed to switch. Portability It is fine for a regular camera but obviously not as easy to carry around as a smartphone.
