I owned the camera six months but then the LCD screen broke. I looked into getting it fixed and the quotes were more than just buying a new camera. I was just learning how to really use the camera's features which can really mess with the quality of your picture. For example, I was indoors and the lighting was poor quality so I set the camera on the indoor setting. This setting made each picture unusable because they were dark and grainy. I found later the picture quality was fine if I just left the camera on "general" picture taking. You get an idea how your picture is going to print by three different colored hands that show up on the screen after you snap the picture. I went through the owner's manual several times and even went to the Kodak Internet site but could not find out what they meant. I actually had to e-mail the question to Kodak. So if you purchase this camera: Green hand: great picture quality Orange hand: fair picture quality Red hand: Delete the picture you won't be able to use it. Now that it sounds like I have totally dogged this camera I have to say once I got the hang of all the details the camera took great pictures. I was disappointed in how easy the LCD screen was to break so make sure you keep this camera in a very padded camera case. I kept it in a Samsonite camera case to keep the size small for my purse but the padding obviously wasn't enough so I recommend a much larger padded case which now makes taking the camera with you a little bulky.
