5 out of 5 eggsGreat little camera!

Pros: I already have a nice digital camera, but I wanted something that I could just throw in my purse and not have to worry about breaking or losing my expensive camera. This works great for a kick-around camera. I have been able to catch more spontaneous pics just because I always have it with me. It's easy to use and takes pretty decent pictures. I got mine with a free 1 GB SD card and carry case, so it was a great deal. I like mine so well, my mom bought one for my dad.

Cons: It's a little slow in low light settings, so a steady hand is needed indoors.

Other Thoughts: Fast shipping, as always. I love Newegg!

2 out of 5 eggsExpected More

Pros: Price, Large Screen

Cons: Screen is slow to react, no viewfinder, a lot of very blurry pics.

Other Thoughts: I bought two as gifts for my mom and mother in law. I have used both of there cameras several times, and I am very comfortable with digital cameras in general, and basically I have been pretty disappointed. This is truly a case of you get what you pay for. Picture quality ranges from horrible to decent, its about half and half, some good some bad. If the lighting is right, like when you are outside, and you have a very steady and patient hand, then it can capture some okay pics, otherwise it can take some pretty awful pictures. If you have a few extra bucks try something else.

5 out of 5 eggsprice belies quality

Pros: the menu system and button layout are simple and straightforward. I still haven't needed to look at the manual. there are an extraordinary number of picture setting, including ones for fireworks, sunsets, sports, and even male's and female's portraits! it runs off two AA batteries, and has a good lifespan: I've filled the 2G sd card i got and the batteries are only half gone. takes decent video as well, and saves it as an AVI. the screen is very smudge-resistant, helped by the simple carrying case included with the camera.

Cons: no manual viewfinder, just the little lcd screen. I dislike this, but it's a small price to pay.

Other Thoughts: this camera is small--2.5"x3.5"x1", HWD. it's also only 5Mp, but that's not really a downside. at the full five, your pictures will have a maximum resolution size roughly that of a poster, more than enough for any everyday needs. I keep it at a 1.2Mp setting.
you have to open the battery door to change the sd card. that's fairly common in my experience, though.

3 out of 5 eggsInexperienced user

Pros: Light weight and portable. Low price is a big plus.

Cons: No manual. I have never used a digital camera and this camera came without a user's manual. It may do a lot, but I have no clue how to use it. I figured out how to take pictures but not how to download onto memory card. I searched on the internet if it was possible to purchase a manual, but no luck.

Other Thoughts: If you know how to use digital cameras already this is probably a good buy.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Camera

Pros: Great price for what you are getting. Small size but big features. Very good for travel.

Cons: I should have bought two when they were on sale... ;)

Other Thoughts: I got this for my mom for a X-mas present. She LOVES it. She can't stop talking about how nice the pictures are and how easy it was to make it work with Vista.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat pictures TOUGH AS NAILS!

Pros: Guys, I can't stress this enough. This is the best camera ever. We bought this for my 9 year old daughter for Christmas. She took numerous clear photos and all was good.

YESTERDAY she left the camera in her pocket. It went through our WASHING MACHINE and got water in it. ARG! (Our washer is a super fast spin dry at 1300 rpm!). It remained in the mess of clothes and went in the dryer until my wife hear a CLUNKY around sound.

It did not turn on after. I blow dryed it off opened the case with 6 screws and used the hair dryer. I got a sick feeling in my stomach. I put some fresh batteries in &

HA IT TURNED ON AGAIN and is taking CLEAR photos again!

I AM ABSOLUTELY SHOCKED! It is alive again.

This camera is tough as nails. My kids have also dropped it several times.

Cons: Absolutely none.

Other Thoughts: Buy this camera, no doubt it's tough, survived the washer and dryer, and a 9 year old dropping it over 10 times.

5 out of 5 eggsWhat a great camera!

Pros: Great Pictures, Sturdy Construction, Nice LCD Viewer, Nice Features. Takes small movies as well with built in microphone.

Cons: Pictures w/o flash require steady hand due to long aperture time.

Other Thoughts: For the price, you cannot even come close to this deal anywhere! Just came back from Disneyland, took over 1000 pictures and only had to change batteries 3 times. Software is pretty good that comes with it. And all for $65.00. I recommend highly for an inexpensive camera with a more expensive feel.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Awesome price. Pretty good Optical Zoom. Good quality pictures with flash.

Cons: Without flash this camera takes very blurry grainy pictures, and it seems like it has a very slow aperture time when taking pictures without flash.

Other Thoughts: I gave it as a Christmas present and I played with it before I gave it away so I could write a review. :)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Little Camera

Pros: This little camera here can take high quality pictures and have sharp photos. The internal memory is little so i would recommend a SD to save more photos and videos storage. Best camera i ever bought with so little money!

Cons: The camera blurs a little when u move it just a bit. The image capturing is a little slow, but takes great pictures.
