Pros:Decent quality photos.

Cons:Poor ergonomics. Electronic design lacking.

The Bottom Line: If this is your first digital camera, it may be ok if the price is right. Otherwise, save up for one that won't frustrate you.


As an insurance auto appraiser, I use my digital camera daily. After a year (actually less than a year) of use, my DC-120 died (dropped one too many times).

Poor ergonomics:
Zoom feature is on the left. Shutter button is on the right. This makes it very difficult to use the zoom feature if your left hand is carrying a clipboard, computer, etc.

Poor electronic design:
In order to set the time/date, you have to have it plugged into a computer. Additionally, you cannot check the time/date without being plugged in.

My co-worker had to turn his in because of the battery connection problem. Another co-worker returned his because, "it just broke." With my turning mine in, that makes 3 out of 3 appraisers in our area turning in the DC-120 within a year.

My company overnighted a new DC-5000 as a replacement. I look forward to writing a review once I've had more time using it.
