This camera uses up batteries like crazy, even the rechargable ones. With new batteries in the camera it only shows half a charge. One min the battery will be flashing red, as if it is dying and the next min its fine, or it might just shut off and you turn it back on and it has battery life again. The button to take the picture is getting slower. This is not a good camera if you need to take a picture in a hurry. Picture quality isn't that great. Low light photos turn out horrible. If you choose the low light then it will brighten up the picture but also make it very blurry. It has a very small screen as well. It is easy to figure out settings and buttons though, but thats probably the only thing good about it.
