    I bought this camera for my daughter to take on a trip. The camera is cheaply made. The screen has a low resolution so it is hard to really see the picture you took. It also takes a long time between pictures to load. The camera was not good. I ended up returning the camera because it kept freezing after taking a picture. Do not buy this camera!!

      It's a good camera. I bought it for my 8 year old son, and it's perfect for him (taking into account its price). I would really recommend it for kids, but not so for adults. I would say its a good option for a first camera.

          If the flash is off, pics turn out blurry, and if the flash is on, its too bright. My iphone 3gs takes better photos than this does. I would buy this for a child. Maybe.

            Not the best digital camera but for the price it's pretty good. Love being able to take a picture and be in it as well. Since it wasn't very expensive don't mind if a drink gets spilled on it.

              Realize this camera is inexpensive and you are going to find it works well enough as an introductory camera for any young person who you may think would get interested in taking pictures AND videos.

              Gave as a Christmas gift to my 8 year old daughter. After 1 day of use, the LCD stop working when you open it up. It only worked when it was closed. So we had to replace it. The replacement is working fine.

                        This camera is perfectly fine. All you have to do is adjust your settings and the camera would be fine. When taking pictures the best thing to do is to put the flash on so you can get a more clearer picture. if you don't put the flash on then you picture might come out a little blurry.

                                  The camera does not take good pictures, hard to understand, and I can't get support to answer any contacts. I ordered the vivitar 2GB card and it doesnt even read in the camera. BAD card too!

                                            If the product had worked more than an hour, it would have been interesting. It has some nice features. I am a videographer, and want a simple point and shoot. This was supposed to be an inexpensive back up.

                                              Don't hesitate if you want a feature-packed camera with simple operation and sturdy construction.

                                              This camera has a great picture, is easy to use and a great price. It's great for kids, (I bought for my 12 year old's birthday) the only issue that we had with it was that the flip-out viewfinder has very poor resolution. For the price you can't beat it.

                                                  This camera takes terrible photos. 10mpx? The photos come out more like a 1mpx phone. I've tried adjusting various settings and nothing helps. This is a cheap camera that doesn't have a good lens at all. Would not recommend.

                                                    I was looking for a camera that would be easy to use. But had a the quality that would last for years to come. I was to be a gift, for a 13 year old, with a eye for photo making. it's small, and light weight. they seem happy with it. and the photos' look excellent.
