Advantages: Cheap and cheerful!
My hubby bought this camera for me as a last minute Christmas gift, he had bought all my usual pressies but saw this in Cash Generator for £19.99 and grabbed it and I have to say I am glad he did.
There are some bad reviews on the internet about this camera and I don't really understand why!

There isn't an awful lot of information available on the net about this camera but don't let that put you off buying one.
Avon were originally selling these in one of their brochures a while back now for £25 and I see that as more than a fair price to pay for a decent camera.
This camera is a gorgeous red colour (cranberry), it looks quite cute and classy. I love how shiny the camera is and how bright and glossy it is.
Obviously it's a digital camera with 7.1 megapixels, the photo quality is brilliant for such a cheap camera. I wouldn't really recommend it if your wanting to take more professional level shots but for general everyday photograph taking of the kids playing or quick holiday snaps this is ideal.
I took lot's of photo's on Christmas day and they came out really clear, having had a lot of them printed off by Boots I am very pleased with the quality.
The camera is nice and light to use and the little screen on the back is great for showing you just how the photo's look, I know that most digital cameras have a screen on the back but I thought it was worth mentioning. The screen quality isn't the best however, and I was worried at first that it was an indicator that the photo's taken would be bad, but this wasn't the case.
The screen quality could be a little better but for such a cheap camera I don't really see this a matter worth complaining about.
My camera came with a memory card but I do know from reading previous reviews that originally it does not include a memory card, this isn't much of a bug bear though as they can be picked up easily enough. Neither does the camera come with a data cable but I just insert the memory card straight into my laptop and take the photo's off that way.
The camera has 4x digital zoom, a self-timer and anti-shake. It requires 3aaa batteries.
It doesn't come with a case but I bought a cute one in Poundland for it and it fits in there just fine.
You are also able to take videos with this camera as well as choose what MP you want to take photos with. The back has little buttons allowing you to access all sorts of functions. The menu button when pressed will guide you through step by step easily enough.
For a the low price, I really think this is a great little camera that looks really quirky and different.
