We were going on holiday a year or two ago and since my camera was broken, i decided to buy a cheap little one just to take away with me. It only cost around £50 at the time and the bonus was that it was pink!
The camera comes with a software CD, a USB cable, a case and strap and instructions.
The camera is small and very lightweight(only weighs around 82g). It's a cute little pink colour with silver dials and buttons. It has a 2.3 inch LCD screen on the back and has a built in flash, self timer and continuous shooting of up to 20 frames per second. It is 5 megapixels and a 4x digital zoom. It also has macro and lanscape settings on the side, and you can choose from various modes using the menu. At the bottom, an SD card can be inserted there is also a usb cable with the camera to transfer your pictures from the camera to your laptop/computer. The camera takes 2AAA batteries.
This camera took pretty good quality pictures considering the price and what not. However, a year or so later into using this camera, it stopped working altogether. I had taken really good care of it, so i have no idea what has happened. But it did serve me well throughout the time i had it and always worked extremely well for the price.
It was bought for a small family holiday, just for a few memorable snaps, and yes it done the job! Not very expensive but does the job that is needed, not reccomened for people who are taking up photography and want top quality images, but if your looking for something to take away with you or your just wanting to take a few snaps here and there then it is the camera for you, comes with pictures and video camera modes, you have the ability to take flash on and off depending on the the light around you, as its quite small its just simple to place in your pocket, coat or bag and will not weigh you down like some of these bulky cameras, you can also link the camera up to your pc or tv to view your taken pictures in high def, Cheap, Simple to use! This camera is made for anyone!

I have had this camera for a good while now as it was a Christmas present from himself a couple of years ago. It was nice to get it although we didn't really need a new digital camera at the time but it was nice to think that, because of its colour, it was solely purchased for me and not to be used by him!
I know that its not a particularly expensive camera as I have seen it in Argos for a mere £30 odd and I was glad that himself hadn't spent too much because if I did loose it it wouldn't matter so much. I was mainly going to use it for girls nights out so there was more chance than usual of me misplacing it.
The camera is nothing overly special or great specification but its not bad and it does all I need it to do as I am not after any pictures that are super sharp.
It has all I need it to in the LCD display and the flash function. It only has a 5 mega pixel spec but this does seem to still produce some pretty good shots. The plastic make up of the camera means that it is quite versatile and again perfect for taking out when having a dew drinks and not have to worry too much.
I use a pretty good memory card in this camera so that I am able to take a lot of shots and you do need a SD card for this camera. The USB cable for the camera can just be plugged in the computer and off you go so there is no messing around with programmes and the like.
The pictures that come out are as expected, not the greatest but they are of fair quality even when taking the shots at night. You do get what you pay for with items such as this so for the price it is actually not too bad and on the whole I am really rather pleased with it.
I found it easy to use in general and the options for use and all pretty basic which makes the camera very easy to use and once you have used it a few times it takes no thought at all to be able to use the few functions that the camera does have.
Overall I have to say that paying £30 for a camera you will only expect to get a camera that does it job and is easy to use and that is exactly what you get here when purchasing this one. I think the bonuses of it being hard wearing, light weight and simple to use are all really what I need from a camera whilst still getting a fairly decent picture. I can't complain and I feel that I am happy to give it a 4 out of 5 score and a recommendation. It is certainly not the best camera out there but it is good for the price.
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you
many thanks for taking the time to read.
I bought this as I wanted to take photos but only had a limited amount to spend, also because it's pink! (my favourite colour!)
Now for the basics about this camera. It is a light camera weighing in at around 82g with a 2.3 inch LCD screen. It is 5 megapixels with a 4 x digital zoom. The outer casing is pink and plastic and the actual camera can easily be connected to your computer using an every day USB cable. There's a slot in the bottom to fit an SD card in and the camera comes with a built in flash and self timer. It also has continuous shooting of up to 20 frames per second.
The camera comes with a USB, carry strap, soft case, instructions and also a software CD - everything you need to get started! For the price of it I wasn't expecting it to take photographs of remarkable quality and my expectations were justified but if you're just taking holiday snaps for example then it certainly does the job. For the price of it I'd say it's good, but if you want to take detailed photographs then it is not the camera for you. Overall this is a nice, average camera and great for the girls - or anyone who likes pink!
