I bought this camera several years ago as me and my husband where going out of town on a small vacation. We were going to Galveston to do a little ghost hunting. They have a ghost tour and the guide suggested that we use cameras. We didn't have anything at the time that was of much quality and needed something new, but didn't want to spend a lot. This little camera has been great and so dependable. We not only used it on that trip with great results, but it has been to the beach and down the river tubing, and I have never had any problems. This poor thing has been dropped so many time and doesn't look so well any more thanks to my teenagers. I have another camera now, that is much more expensive and sensitive, and I still find myself wanting to use this one. I initially gave this camera to my daughter when I got my new one, but I keep borrowing it from her. It just works so well, and I would recommend this to anyone!
