Pros:great zoom (on high resolution) great pictures with high resolution

Cons:blurry pictures-low resolution battery life settings are erased everytime you turn off the camera

The Bottom Line: I don't think it's worth the regular retail price..go to ebay and find one that's cheaper..


I was surprised that I could actually get this wonderful camera for 99 dollars..it was brand new and worked perfectly! I used it when I went to disneyland and there are some problems..on high quality the pictures come out superb..but on low quality the pictures came out really really blurry..on high quality you can only take 14 pictures..on low you can take over 100..so I switched back and forth between high and low and the difference between them was so noticeable after I downloaded the pictures..the low quality pictures are not even useable..I took around 50 pictures..but most of them were not very clear..the medium resolution can only take around 28 pictures..but it's better than the low resolution by far..28 pictures was simply not enough for me so in the end I just decided to purchase a xd-card for more memory so I wouldn't have to settle for low quality pictures..by the end of the day, the battery was so drained that it could only open for about 2 seconds and then shut off..so you NEED to get rechargeable batteries or always have a spare..also, you can change the quality setting and picture settings (zoom, portrait, night scene, etc.) but once you turn off the camera, the settings are gone and when you use it again you have to start all over..but overall this camera takes very clear pictures with high resolution and the zoom is also fantastic (on high resolution)..I would not have paid regular retail for this camera but for what I paid, I think it's worth every cent..but then again, I also need to buy the xd-card and rechargeable batteries, and a camera case, and a battery recharger..but this is the same for every camera right? oh, it also doesn't have a viewfinder but I never use those anyway..I just use the LCD..
