This is a great camera for the price. When I first purchased it, I didn't have much money but I needed a new camera because mine had recently broke. I purchased this one and really didn't have high expectations. Well, I was pleasantly surprised. It takes great, crisp, clear pictures. It also has many different picture taking options to find just what you need in pretty much any situation. It's also of course easy to share your pics and videos with others. Image Quality Pictures come out crisp and clear and there are several different options to make sure you get the resolution you want on your pics. Performance Works great, very durable and battery has a good life span. Ease of Use Simple to use, anyone should be able to figure it out. Durability Very durable, I have dropped mine several times and nothing severe has happened to the camera besides a few small scratches. Battery Life Battery has a pretty long life, should def. hold you over at least 1 good solid day of taking lots of pics. Portability Small and slim, it's easy to fit in your pocket or purse, or just hang it on your wrist using the tie.
