Pros: lightweight, easy to use, affordable, all weather, rechargeable battery
Cons: video usage wears down battery quickly,
Excellent camera for outdoors with specific settings to adjust to lighting. image stabilization feature allows movement of object without blur. I like this camera for its lightweight easy to use features that allow me to take pictures of scenery and events that take place with minimal fuss to achieve a clear picture for your photograph memories in a booklet. Taking videos is somewhat of a strain on the battery for this camera but it still can be done with good results. I like the convenience of the calendar feature that lets you know what date the picture was taken. It also has a built in alarm clock that might come in handy at sometime for me when i need a gentle reminder. I have had this camera for a few years now and I have taken several pictures that have received good reviews from everyone. I have even designed my own calendar from all of my favourite photos that I have taken during the year which is a reward in itself. For someone wanting to take photos of a more sophisticated nature this camera would probably not be the best choice for you. I would recommend this camera to someone who goes to lots of weddings and other events and likes to capture the moments that are special to him or her. This is my first digital camera that I have purchased for myself and I have not regretted it all for the amount of photos that I now have with memories intact it is a gem to have wherever you go in your travels at home or abroad. The price was right for me with it not being to expensive with one easy payment that will pay for itself in no time.
