This was my first ever digital camera and I have loved it so much that it is the only one I have ever owned! I am actually on my second one as my first one was pickpocketed when I was in Rome but I have made sure I stuck with the same model.
This 6 megapixel camera is probably the best of its kind in the price range.
It has lots of different features for taking pictures and can also record sounds and record film clips also with sound. It can take images in colour, black & white or sepia tone if you should so wish.
It has a simle button to press to take the shots and a simple toggle to use to zoom in or out. It has a display feature so you can see the pictures or film clip you have just taken and it also has a the capacity to edit the film clips you have just made.
It has an anti shake display feature to ensure your pictures are of the highest quality.
The only fault is that it does use up a lot of battery power but investing in some good quality rechargable batteries makes this a minor problem.
