I am so glad I purchased this camera. I must start by saying I am not camera savvy. So I wanted something very user friendly, but still had all the bells and whistles. This little camera delivered.

It comes in a variety of colors to choose from which is nice to personalize for yourself if you'd like. I got the purple.
The camera has 12 Mega pixels,Wide 4x Optical Zoom & a 2.7inch LCD screen.
The zoom on this camera is pretty impressive. I've been able to zoom in on an object across the street & down the road from my front porch with clarity.
With the correct settings applied I was able to take photos of my holiday lights outside at night with out the picture looking blurry or distorted. For a night shot it was crystal clear. I take a lot of photos of objects(products like jewelry,product packaging,hair styles,etc) to upload on the Internet for blogs.
The variety of settings on this camera allows me to change according to what I'm shooting. I can take a photo of a magazine article & have the words on the page be readable & clear in the photo. I can take a photo of a sparkly piece of jewelry with out it having glare or shine spots. Long story short there is a setting for any of your needs. Taking photos of a fireworks display-there's a setting for that. How about a night shot-got it. A family portrait? There's a face recognition setting to get everyone clearly. There's even settings for a sunset, sports events with movement, back lighting, black & white shots. The list goes on. There's 17 settings in all for customized photo shots.
If you don't feel like being Fancy you can just leave the setting on "Auto" and the camera will decide what is best for the lighting,distance of the shot-whether to use flash or no flash. All you have to do is point and shoot. There is also a video recording option that I have used to shoot video for youtube. The sound and clarity has been excellent. You can also choose video options to shoot in such as "for computer", "HD video", etc. For wide screen or regular.
The camera is very user friendly. I taught myself all of the feature options with out going the the user manual once. The camera also comes with a wrist strap for carrying around on trips and also has a spot in the bottom to mount it on a camera tripod if you wanted to.
A great feature is that it comes with a rechargeable battery so you don't have to worry about replacing AA batteries all the time. Just plug the power cord into the camera and into a power outlet & you are set.
