This is a great camera for on-the-go people because it is very compact and easy to carry around, either in your purse, diaper bag, pocket, etc. It takes good pictures and is pretty easy to use, in fact my 4-year-old can operate it. I use a DSLR for all of my "photography" pictures, but this one does the job for everyday use and times when I don't want to lug around my big camera. Image Quality 10.1 MP gives good quality pictures for everyday use. Ease of Use Very basic camera, my 4-year-old can operate it. Durability This camera has help up well around my 2 kids so I rate it at a 5. Battery Life Very good. I use the batteries that are made for digital cameras and last a little longer. It i Portability Very compact and lightweight.
