Disadvantages: slow, bad battery life
I previously owned a big Panasonic brick digital camera and when that gave up I got this camera. I was given it as a present, so it was great value for money, but I think at the time it cost £100. I have had it for a couple of years so I am sure there are many more modern and smaller cameras - and to be honest I might end up ditching this one to get one of thise smaller, better cameras!
There is not a huge amount wrong with this camera. It takes good photos in every kind of weather and the quality of print is definitely sufficient for the kind of photos I want, which are just normal every day ones, nothing professional!
However, there are definitely problems and these maybe only started as it got older. For example when I turn the camera on it takes ages to take the first photo. For some reason it kind of sticks and you have to be patient, which can be annoying if the moment is lost.
Also the battery life is now not great. However this may be because the camera is a little older now.
Not the greatest camera you would ever get, but it is ok and does the job. I probably would not recommend it now as technology has advanced so much!
Summary: Not all that good actually!
