Takes very good pictures Image Quality The pictures are clear and the zoom is good. Performance This camera performs well under ordinary circumstances. it has many settings. Ease of Use The only problem is that it would be easy to erase all of your pictures when attempting to erase just one. Durability The door that covers the battery compartment is a bit fragile. Dropped my first camera and the piece that holds the door in place broke off. Battery Life Not the best battery life but adequate. I always carry a spare set. Portability Fits in a pocket so I like it when I am traveling.
