I got this camera on a black friday special for a great price. It takes great pictures and is easy to use. I actually purchased 2 of these cameras. The one thing I don't like about this camera is the way it burns up batteries so fast, literally I would put new ones in and the same day they would be dead. I finally purchased rechargeable batteries which helped a ton. I personally replaced this camera with one that has a built in battery that recharges like a cell phone. Image Quality Takes great pictures and shutter speed is fast. I have taken some great pictures of my kids. Performance Overall performance is good, however the fact that it drains batteries so fast, at times I went to take pictures to find the camera dead. Ease of Use Camera is very easy to use and simple to download pictures to my computer or print at a store. Durability Camera is very durable, my kids have used it and dropped it and it did not effected the performance Battery Life Again I mentioned that the camera drains batteries very fast making requiring me to either take the batteries out until use or use my rechargeable batteries. Portability Camera is very portable and fits in my purse or diaper bag.
