      You will do nothing but resent every moment spent using it!

      I bought this camera about a year and a half ago for £80. I couldn't find any reviews online for this, but foolishly went ahead and bought it (this is why I'm writing a review - although not widely available anymore they may end up on ebay etc second hand).

      I personally would not inflict this camera on anybody. As soon as you hold it in your hands you notice it is of poor quality - feels cheap, plastic-y and hollow. It's lightweight but bulky at the same time. The picture quality is appalling and can't be adjusted. Photos look grey and lifeless - particularly when you use the flash (which you need to unless you are in bright daylight). Everyone in your photos looks anaemic! The shutter speed seems sluggish so moving pictures are blurry - even in good lighting. It takes too long to recycle between shots which is frustrating and useless if you are taking photos of live action or children, for example.

      The features on the camera are basic - which would be fine if the camera was of decent quality. It is very easy to use and has always worked consistently - no problems with it malfunctioning etc. You can take videos of reasonable quality - but with no sound. There is a self timer function. That's about it. The CD software is easy to install and use but is very basic.

      The camera eats batteries like you wouldn't believe - it takes 2 AA batteries, even when using high quality digital camera batteries, you are lucky to get more than 20 photos from a single set of batteries.

      You can get a much better camera for less than half the price of this one, don't waste your time and money on it!
