I bought this camera in the fall of 2008. The reason I bought this one was because it was a decent price and has a 5x zoom lens, which is good for a small camera. I like to take a lot of pictures especially on special occasions and I have been quite pleased with the quality. One of the things that can get a little annoying is that there are two main picture taking settings that each have different features. For instance, there is a good night lighting feature, but it is not an option of both of the settings so you have to make sure you go to the correct one. On the other hand, it does have different color options such as sepia, black and white, etc; however, this feature is also only an option on one of the settings. When looking through the pictures, you can look through them by date which is a very nice feature if you have a ton of pictures on your card. I must say that I am very much overall pleased with this camera and would highly recommend it.
