I have owned this camera for around 8 months. I chose this as I wanted a 10 MP camera at a reasonable price. I have found this really easy to use, and even my three year old son can take a decent photograph with the camera! There is a zoom feature which is simple to operate, and the bright LCD screen is clear and just the right size. It has a rechargable lithion battery which lasts a long time. I charged the battery before our fortnights holiday and it lasted for the whole two weeks without needing re-charging which is much better than the Sony camera I had previously. The camera also has face recognition technology which is a useful feature. I have been really pleased with the photographs taken, they are sharp and generally clear for a relatively low priced camera. All in all, a good camera, easy to use & good results.
I bought the silver version of this about a year ago as a replacement for my Sony model which broke after 3 months, initially because it seemed a better value alternative to other similar models.
Looks: the camera is slim, and looks unsurprisingly like a standard digital camera. The 2.7 inch LCD on the back takes up most of the space there, although there are buttons for zoom, viewing pictures, macro, and flash.
Price and availability: The RRP is £119.99, but the camera is also available from Amazon for the value price of £79.98 including delivery.
Features: 10MP, which in my opinion is more than enough for amateur photography. It also has 3x optical zoom, which isn't bad but could be better as photos do get a little blurry. The camera has a Li-ion battery which has two advantages: it both means that it's not necessary to continually buy batteries, and means that the camera doesn't have to be thick enough to accommodate AA batteries. The internal battery lasts ages (enough for 2 weeks of holiday using it most days).
The camera has space for a memory card, which is definitely a necessity as the internal memory is very small. This is an additional expense which should be taken into consideration, but it's something that in my experience applies to all models similar to this one.
The flash is effective, though not at its best in half-light. The macro setting works well, but for most things I find the 'auto' to be sufficient.
Overall: basic, doesn't do anything amazing, but great value for money and overall a great little camera for general use.
I have been the proud owner of this camera for a couple of years now, I seriously cannot find fault with it.
I own the pink version and it really is lightweight, slim-line and
It comes with 10 megapixels which really is ample enough. It also comes with all the relevant leads and software discs so you can upload/edit/store your pictures on your computer.
It really is easy to understand how to use it, even as a novice to the digital camera world. The large screen on the back of the camera, makes it easy to focus on your subject area and include everything you want to.
The optical zoom really is great too. It does not distort and is really easy to use, and the buttons are in the most convenient place, so you can still concentrate on using the capture button.
It also have an array of features to alter your pictures, and of course allows you to video-record things, in high quality.
The matte metal finish, also means it does not attract dust or fingerprints. It stays looking new and really does the job!
This really is good for value, great looking and a superb buy!
