2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Slim, lightweight design. Easy-to-navigate menus with easy-to-press buttons.

Cons: Most pictures shot with flash turn out grainy, even while shooting in higher resolutions, in action setting.Those without flash often turn out blurry.

2 out of 5 eggsNot worth the price even on Shellshocker

Pros: It took pictures and was compatible with MicroSD cards, lots of different settings.

Cons: Every picture i took with this camera came out blurry no matter what i did it just did not take good pictures
1 dead pixel as well :/
There are many other cameras out there that will take much better pictures at this price range.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for my girlfriends graduation present, well that was a waste as her 3 and a half year old camera took WAY better pictures, and was not even a big ticket item.

5 out of 5 eggsNice deal

Pros: i bought this as Shell Shocker deal, not disapointed in any way, I was a Canon man forever, but this cam has 2x megapixels and an extra zoom option my powershot dosnt have at 1\2 price.

Cons: Canona use AA battaries, this uses a different battery, but came with charger, so i bought an extra battery and a 2 Gig mem card add 30 $ to get me vacation\roadtrip ready still less than my canon.

Other Thoughts: Pics are very good Great features softwear is excellent,Batteries last a very long time im going on 3rd day since i charged it and still shows good life.
as usual All ahil the cosmic EGG shell shockers make you even better Eggtopuss!

5 out of 5 eggsGood Camera

Pros: The camera has good quality pictures with some nice features. It has a nice zoom, but the digital zoom can be a little sketchy. It also has a long lasting battery.

Cons: I was disappointed that it did not have a playback speaker. Also when it is plugged into the computer, the camera has to be on in order to connect. Not really a con, but its a waste of battery.

Other Thoughts: The flash is really bright. Especially at night. The software it comes with works great. I was able to crop and edit photo's with out a problem. But of course make sure your computer can support it. All in all, a very nice camera.

5 out of 5 eggsDont be fooled. This is a nice camera!

Pros: Huge potential for me... the ablity to us a micro SD card (it takes my 8gb no problem) Cool settings for different picture styles and sizes, The ablility to record video, Rechargeable battery. Small but camera case (this camera is not light junk).

Cons: It wasn't free? LOL. I think the biggest bummer but, i did kinda know that is you cant plug the camera in and charge the battery while using the wall adapter. you have to remove the battery to charge. I might just buy another battery.

Other Thoughts: No this is a $1000 digital camera that has a but for what it's worth I can say though I got more then I paid for. Great deal and unique color... my camera will proabably never get mixed up with others.

5 out of 5 eggsLook in the manual bag friend

Pros: This camera was purchased during the recent shellshocker as well. There is a memory card in it, you have to look in the plastic bag the manual comes in, it's taped to the back of the manual. I know quirky place to put it, but it is indeed there.
Thought toss it out there so folks don't think other wise with the previous reviewer saying there wasn't one.

Cons: sgsg

Other Thoughts: For $70 shipped, a 12 MP camera , yes no sound playback, but wttff there's sound to the AVIs, what more do you need? lol.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Camera

Pros: Cheap.
Standard camera features.
12 MP.
Big LCD.
Excellent pictures from what I've tested so far. Pretty sure one can tweak the settings to make them look even better.

Cons: No audio playback from camera.
Non touchscreen LCD.
Doesn't come with memory card.

Other Thoughts: Got it during the newegg Shell Shocker deal. Standard consumer digital camera. Expected features for price. I'm happy with it and mainly bought it because it was orange :P.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Compact Camera

Pros: Cheap. Bought mine as a replacementfor an FE 45 which was broken. We are very happy with this camera. Of course I realize some hi-tech pros may noy be happy with this camera.
But for an all around family camera, it's a great buy.

Cons: None.

1 out of 5 eggsI don't think so....

Pros: Cheap price

Cons: Doing my homework before purchasing turned up some of the worst reviews I've ever seen on any product. If you're considering this you better do some research first.
