I recently purchased this camera because it was on sale. i needed a new one and I wanted to upgrade from the small pocket cameras I usually get. I thought since I spent more money, the quality would be a lot better. I was not impressed by the picture quality. I also didn't like the time it took to take a picture. I am looking for something that you can take mulitple pictures within several seconds. I returned the camera, since I wasn't completely satisfied with it.
