Advantages: Easy to use and very portable
Disadvantages: Expensive on batteries and photo paper
This camera is at the bottom end of the market but it is a little gem.
It's so easy to use and gives fantastic results. The software package which comes with it (Adobe Photodelux)
is simple to use and is quite magical.
9 - 12 passport-size photographs can be printed on a 4" x 6"
sheet of glossy paper (a lucrative by-product).
The main drawbacks are the high consumption of batteries and the cost of the photo paper. It is cheaper to have a roll of film printed at a processors but the camera allows for so much more versatility.
Batteries have to be good quality Duracell-type batteries and even so they are exhausted pretty quickly. A battery charger is available for this model but I have not yet been able to find one.
You can't really take it on holiday unless you have a massive SmartMedia card.
On the whole I love it.
