Advantages: Takes really nice photographs, 14MP!
Disadvantages: Poor battery life unless you have the right battery, bit chunky
This camera is fantastic; easy to use and, most importantly, it takes beautiful photographs! The camera is incredibly user friendly, has brilliant zoom (I took some wonderful photographs of a band on stage from way back in the crowd!), a bright high resolution screen and a number of scene modes, allowing you to take lovely photos in any light. I've had it for more than a year and wouldn't even consider changing it right now - it does everything I need it to do and I love the way it looks.
This camera has a whole 14MP(!) which is pretty impressive, and what's more - it shows! I've taken hundreds of lovely photographs which are now nicely arranged on my bedroom walls - they are good quality, clear and bright... I would go as far as saying that it takes the nicest pictures of all the cameras I have ever owned. My favourite thing about the camera has to be it's zoom - it's really useful to be able to take nice photos from far away; standing next to my friends in a crowd whilst trying to take photographs of people on stage was really evidence of how good the zoom is in comparison to other digital cameras. I really like the Perfect Touch feature, probably because it makes me look prettier (which I definitely need) but also because it brightens the photos up and makes them nicer overall. A downside of the camera would probably be its chunky-ness; it's quite difficult to fit in the average pocket as it's thick, however I do like it's size and it fits nicely into one hand as it is designed to do so. I think that I should perhaps invest in trousers with bigger pockets... Another downside would be that it drains normal AA batteries after taking about 2 photographs, I would one hundred percent recommend investing in a Kodak rechargable battery if you're going to go for this camera otherwise there's not really any point!
At just under £200 for the camera, I feel that the price was spot on - 14MP, a fantastic zoom feature and range of modes is worth the amount I paid, especially in comparison to the features of other digital cameras that you pay a similar amount for. This is a great camera and it doesn't have many downsides. I definitely recommend it, just don't forget to get the right battery!
Summary: Easy to use and takes beautiful photographs
