I received this as a special deal where if I bought a more expensive camera this one came free. I guess I can't argue about the cost since I received it free. However, If I spent $^) on it, I would not be happy. I gave it to my 17yo daughter because the digital camera she owned had a crack in the display. After fiddling with the new camera she decided to use her cracked one instead. This might be a good deal for a young teenager but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who was even somewhat interested in taking lots of pictures.
This camera takes some AMAZing photos in sunlight. It's lightweight and takes good pictures while moving. The only problem i found with this camera was that it doesnt take the best pictures while zooming. If you go to full zoom it's so blurry you can barely see what it is. BUT other than that its a worth while camera for anyone low on cash or for a present. I would recomend it to any of my friends.
