We purchased this camera last summer as a second camera but it has become our primary and only camera. Within a week of purchasing this camera our old one broke. We had that one for a number of years. It is easy to use. It is a 12 megapixel camera which I think is just fine. It is not too fancy and not fancy enough. It also has 5x zoom. HD video which is a pretty good feature to have.
The batteries that come with it take about an hour to charge each time you recharge them. The memory card that comes with it does not have a lot of capacity. We purchased a memory card that would hold more pictures as I find that we tend to forget to delete pictures off the memory once we download them. More my husband than I is guilty of that. Having the extra memory card helps out if we run out of space. Overall I think it is a great camera for someone who does not need a camera with all the features. Screensize on the back is a little small for my taste. It is a good inexpensive camera that I hope to be using down the road another 2 or 3 years.
