Advantages: Price, AUTO SR mode, large list of features, quality product
Disadvantages: Can be battery hungry. Like other cameras, you need to buy memory cards separately
After reading the one review of this camera I felt I had to provide a realistic review of its features!
Yeah, it doesn't come with a memory card - however practically no new camera (certainly not low-priced ones) come with a memory card. Annoying - Yes, but hardly the end of the world!
Onto the camera. This can be picked up for £50 to £60, and for this price it is an absolute steal! 12Million pixels and with a proper optical zoom and a quality lens means it is very easy to take pictures. The camera has loads of features and options.
The prime feature, particularly for anyone who wants a "point & shoot", is the option for the camera to select all the best settings automatically (called Auto SR). In this Auto Scene Recognition mode it decides whether it is a close-up image, general scenery or portrait amongst others, automatically adjusting for daylight, indoors or night-time and even removing 'red eye' from people.
This camera also has features you normally only find on much more expensive cameras such as Image Stabilisation, Panoramic images (where you take three pictures and the camera joins them at the edges), and Face Recognition where it recognises if people are in the picture and can automatically remove 'red eye' from any of the faces.
The camera does make some whirring noises, particularly when you have it on AutoSR - it is simply the camera doing lots of find adjustments to the focusing and lens etc.
It takes AA batteries, but you might want to invest in some decent high capacity re-chargeable ones.
Summary: A brilliant camera at a bargain price.
