Pros:Small size, easy self-portraits with 360-degree pivoting lens, fairly simple to use, good price

Cons:2 pixels not good for printing large photos out

The Bottom Line: If you have occasion to take pictures only 2-3 times per month, you want to email photos, and don't need nice prints, this is a good deal.


If you want a digital camera mostly for e-mailing photos, this is a great deal. for about $200 you can get great looking photos to store on your home computer. This camera is small so it's easy to tote and comes with pre-set background settings. This means you just indicate whether the setting is outdoors/sunny, at night, indoors, panoramic, close-up, or a few others, and the camera will adjust its settings accordingly to get the best shot. If you don't like a lot of doo-dads to have to deal with, you'll like this camera.
The hook-up for downloading photos to your computer is very easy after you download the software when you first get the camera.

One minor hassle is that the camera takes about 2-3 seconds to 'boot up' before it can shoot. This means that if you want to get a quick photo and need to shoot it immediately, the moment or image might be lost within those 2-3 seconds.

If you have ambitions for printing out nice looking 5x7's, you might want to look into a camera with more than 2 pixels.
