This was the best investment of a camera that I have ever done. I bought this camera on sale one day. I have LOVED it every since. Easy to use settings, great picture quality. I have never had a picture that printed grainy or blurry. Any size that I wanted to print too came out looking wonderful! Image Quality This camera takes great pictures. I can blow up the picture to any size I want and it prints awesome! Performance Easy to use. Love every picture that has been taken with it. Ease of Use Has great simple, point and shoot technology. But it also has the manual setting for all the big photographers out there. Durability I have had my camera for almost 10 years now. I LOVE it. It is still going strong. Never had any problem out of it. Battery Life The batteries that I had come with it are still the ones I use today almost 10 years later. They are starting to get to where I need to charge them most often, but they have lasted a long time! Portability It is a little bit bulky so if you are wanting a camera that is for every day use this might not be the one for you. I have a smaller point and shoot camera that I keep in my bag for every day pics, but I pull this one out when I know that I need great pictures.
