I got this camera used from a friend. I needed a cheap little digital camera that took good pictures. Well...

First thing I did with my camera was take a few shots outside. It took pretty good shots, but when they were connected to the computer, they didn't look the best. They were good, but not awesome. The camera itself is 6MP, so it should take good pictures. The flash makes a lot of pictures look better though, because without it on they look bad.

This camera is very durable. I have dropped and dinged it a couple times and it still works great. The battery life is not that good. It seems to use battery power even when it is off! You can go throuhg 2 pairs a day AT LEAST if you were taking a lot of pictures. The screen size is decent and good to view photos on. Videos look a little small, but thats normal.

The menu is sort of confusing. Also, it is confusing to pick which mode you want. The camera does not zoom that well also. I think you can put any size memory stick you want in there though.

Overall it is a good camera, but if you are looking for something to take amazing pictures then this isn't it. But for the average picture taker, this is a good camera.
