Just Too Cheap To Buy A New One

Well, let me just start off by saying, if I weren't saving up for a car, I would buy a new camera. Now, I'm not saying that this camera is terrible or something, I actually really like this camera. But it's kind of bulky and not very attractive. I actually got this camera when I was fundraising for JDRF, let's just say I raised a lot, and they sent me the little booklet to pick a reward.

Anyways, this camera takes pretty good pictures, I guess. It's fairly simple to understand. The dial to switch modes has only 5 options - view pictures, auto, manual, sunset, and video. The memory card I have in it, which has more than the card it came with, can't last very long. The camera itself claims it has "3.4x optical zoom" and "7.1 megapixels". Usually if I go on a trip I bring this camera, but don't end up with many pictures of the trip because the memory card is all full. The camera overal works okay, nothing spectacular about it, other than, when I looked it up, this camera is only about $89.The screen is about 1.5 x 2.25 inches (5 x 6.5 cm) at my best measurement.

If you were to spend money on a good quality memory card, than this camera might be worth it. But honestly, I would just buy a better camera.
