      Comments about VG-160 Digital Camera (Orange):

      I bought this camera for an 11 year old. It is incredible how creative he is with it! It has fabulous specal effect features that get used all the time, as does the video. He learned how to use it just by experimentation. It is a nice compact size, so it's easy to bring it along. Great resolution, too! Battery seems to be lasting forever. So glad I purchased it for him and so fun to watch him play! We haven't printed any photos from it yet, so can't comment on that.

            Technical specs really don't matter a lot. I upgraded from a 6 year old Cannon Point and Shoot to get a more compact camera. Menu is a piece of cake and its fun to try all the different shooting modes offered.[*]..Its really a fun camera that just asked to be used.

              I bought three of these - one for each of my children (11 years old and 8 years old). They've had no problems using it, and the pictures look good, and they've stood up better than I expected. I wish they'd used a standard USB connector for charging / data.

                        I bought this little camera for work and play.My last camera was a 3.2 megapixel camera and the difference is huge!! The full auto is a no brainer, and the manual functions let you decide how to take your photos. And may I add that I fell from 8 feet with my camera in a small pouch and it survived!!!
