This digital camera takes very high quality pictures without the bulkiness of one of those big professional cameras. The pictures are not grainy at all when uploaded to a computer. I thought this wouldn't be possible without having those expensive cameras. The flash is very strong and is able to take pictures in a dark room or at night. This camera is very durable, I had experience when I brought it to a water park in my bag that got wet, and it still worked! The size of this camera is very convenient and you can bring it anywhere, it even fits in your pocket. The battery lasts me for a full day of picture taking and I don't have to change the battery throughout a day of full use. It is fairly simple to use, regulating the flash is just a button away. The simplicity of it allows for strangers to take a picture of my family without having to ask how to use it. I am satisfied with the performance of this camera and the quality of it too.
