My husband bought this camera for me for Chritmas this past year. It is sooo easy to use. It is definately a camera that someone who is not tech savvy could use and enjoy. We originally used regular double A batteries, but have found that rechargable batteries work much better. Without an additional memory cart, you are able to store around 80 photos. With a memory card, memory is over 800! This camera is about the size of a pack of cards. It comes with the software to download your photos to your computer, which is also very user friendly.
The only down side I have found is that sometimes while taking the photos they are dark, but when it shows what is saved, the photo itself is in proper color.
