I bought this camera about two years ago to use for ebay. I needed one with an optical zoom of at least 3x for close ups. It worked very well for the auctions, but I did have to enhance the pictures as most of them were a little dark.
I had a problem with batteries so i bought a charger which helped. The first ones i bought had to be charged and they didn't last long at all. I then bought some Kodak batteries that were already charged and they are still good. Never buy batteries you have to charge.
It doesn't have a lot of memory, 16mb is what is listed on the box. You will want a memory chip to put in it if you use it much. I didn't really need that for ebay auctions though. It does video too but again without the chip the movie is very brief.
It's a good camera and I like the software that comes with it, very simple and easy to use. It takes great looking pictures and my family is borrowing it all the time. I have not had any problems with it, it works fine.
