I had way too many technical issues with this camera to give it a good rating. The camera was constantly freezing up on me before, after, and even while taking photos. Using flash was a nightmare too as it would make faces come out really flat and kind of freaky looking. I had a lot of blurry pictures with this camera, especially when there was the slightest bit of movement. Believe me I changed setting and this and that trying to fix these issues but the majority of the photos still came out the same. Image Quality Not good, I had way to many ruined photos from blurriness, overexposure and bad lighting. Performance Took too long to snap a photo and the camera would freeze up from time to time. Ease of Use It is easy enough to follow directions for use. Battery Life I did not use it long enough in one sequence without problems to see how the battery lasted. Portability I really like the size of the camera, which is what attracted me to it in the fist place.
