This camera is for all of those people that love to take pictures but never have room to carry that bulky camera. Very fun to use. Fits anywhere, so small you can put it in a cell phone case, pda case, the side pocket in your purse. Fits in your back pocket of your jeans. Not to difficult to use. You don't have to be a rocket scientist. The battery last for a long time. There is not a view finder to look through only a very large screen. Point and shoot. High enough resolution for anything. The zoom is enough for every day use. Not enough for long off shots of outdoor scenery.
