I received this camera for Mother's Day a couple of years ago, and it has been great. It takes good photos, is easy to use, and has long battery life. It is very compact, fitting easily into a purse or even a pocket. This could be a downfall for someone with large hands.The camera has several modes, including a video mode. I pretty much always use the auto adjustment mode, which serves me well. It is easy to delete photos that you don't want, and it is also easy to turn the flash off if you need to.Transfering photos to your PC is easy with the supplied USB cable.The camera uses a rechargeable battery, which comes with the camera. The charger is also compact and easy to use.Be careful when selecting a memory card, as this compact camera uses a compact-sized memory card. We got the wrong one the first time around.
