It is a great product for a very reasonable price. It does what it promises and beyond. I take great macro pictures with this camera. All what you need is just closely read the instruction. I would recommend mostly for beginners, but also it is great in pocket camera to take pictures "on the go". Image Quality I love the quality of the pictures. It is quite good.The outdoor image pictures are vibrant and sharp. Ease of Use It is great camera for beginners Battery Life It has two batteries. It is enough for 300 pictures ( in my case).
