Advantages: All the features are easy to use
Disadvantages: Might be getting left behind with the more modern cameras
I don't take that many photographs other than the normal holiday and party photos that everyone takes, so had never really bothered to get a good camera. I was worried about getting a digital camera as I thought they would be difficult to use so did not want to spend a great deal, but did want a camera that looked good, was easy to use and provided good pictures. Not asking much am I?
This is a 7 2 megapixel camera and I paid £89 for it in 2008. Despite buying a better one for a holiday to Shanghai I have since gone back to using this when I know I need a reliable camera. I carry it with me every day and while it is a bit chipped around the edges the blue is still as bright as when I bought it.
It was easy to use from the start and the photographs were clear and within days I got used to the idea of being able to hold the camera up and not right in front of my eyes. It is just a quick click of the controls to see of you are happy with the picture or if you want to delete it. Deleting is easy and the good thing is that you are given a second chance so here you have to click twice to delete so there is no reason you should delete one by accident.
You can also lock pictures so as if you want to delete a lot at once the good ones don't go. When I need to have photographs of locations for the mystery shopping I do it is helpful to be able to delete quickly as often I take 4 or 5 at a time to make sure the companies are happy with them. Every few months I just check the ones I want to lock and then delete the rest
As it is made of metal it is slightly heavier than many more modern cameras but not so heavy that it causes a problem when carrying it around. It fits easily into a small going out bag so I can take it everywhere with me.
It helps that there is a selection of flash options, meaning that I can choose off, auto flash or slow so even if I am outdoors at night the picture quality is good when downloaded.
The lens is a 3 time zoom and this again is easy to operate as it is just a matter of clicking on one button to increase and then the opposite one to decrease. Although focus adjustment is automatic there are slight problems with taking something very close as it is extremely blurry when downloaded.
The display is 2.5" so clearly big enough to get a good view of what you have taken and I find I can see right away if I need to retake. Recharging the battery is easy as it just slips out and is placed into a cradle that gets plugged into the mains.

This is a camera that I will easily give 5 stars and I hope that in the future when I do need to change again, I can find that it is still on the market
Summary: A great camera that lets you take quick, quality photogrpahs.
