I have been using this camera for more than two-and-a-half years and it still works great. The range of options regarding photo resolution, lighting, setting, and special effects allow you to take great photos all the time. My bundle came with the 2 AA rechargable batteries needed and a 128MB memory stick both of which work without a hitch. The LCD display is bright and allows you to zoom in to any part of the picture, and has a quick delelte option. The only gripe I have with the display is the screen blacking for a few seconds after you take a flash picture. The camera is very good at recording small video clips that I can upload on my computer as MPEGs for conveniance though the video quality does tend to be a little dark even in favorable lighting conditions. The optical and digital zoom are top quality. Overall, the camera is very easy to function and easier still to upload pictures and videos to your computer with the USB cable.
