The camera starts up slow, and there is a long lag time between photos. But it works great other wise for a pocket camera. Its tiny and cute and the pictures aren't blurry and that's really all I wanted for what I call a party camera.

Good camera for the price.

I bought this product as a gift for a friend. She was in dire need of an upgrade but she isn't the most tech savvy person either. This camera was perfect for her. Simple to use and the orange color looked great. She loved it. I was able to play around with it a little bit before I wrapped it. Even being refurbished the camera looked new. It took decent pictures and the facial recognition worked pretty good. I did notice that it had a bit of a lag when moving it quickly and the shutter speed slowed down in low light areas. The zoom also was a bit slow to zoom in and out. Over all it was a good purchase. All accessories were included along with the manual and software.

good value pocket camera

I bought this camera because: 1.) Its' compact size and weight (size of a cigarette pack) 2.) It has a glass rather than a plastic lens 3.) It has an Li-ion rechargeable battery 4.) I can select the format size of the stored pictures (i.e. 480 X 640, etc., etc.) 5.) It has a flash override function 6.) 12MP capacity

Great value!
