My husband bought me this camera after many yrs. of buying disposable cameras. I take pic. of everything, every event and every memory must be cateloged with a pic....lol I have 2 small children and one on the way so i am always snapping up pic of them. this camera has come in very handy and like i said it takes excellent pic and is very easy to use. this camera also has many diffrent options such as black and white and sephia...plus i can resize my photos and change them in any concevable way. this camera is so easy to use that even my 5 yr old can take pic with it.
