Pros The camera is very cheap ($100 on sale). Picture quality is okay as long as you have a dominant light source. Hard to take picture after picture because the camera process it so slow. Flash is useless
Cons Does not have a battery meter (either that or I can't find it). It only shows you the battery meter when the camera is about to die. No viewfinder to save battery, only an LCD which eats it up.
Summary This camera is for the first time user, but even the first time user deserves better! Don't buy it. It is a waste of money. The price might be appealing, but picture moments only happen once. I regretted bringing it to a wedding I went to. The menu is easy to understand, but navigating through it was pain. Not worth the money.
Pros Low Price, Easy to Use, Small, Durable
Cons Low Battery Life, Badly Translated Manual
Summary This camera is a great point & shoot to carry with you in case something interesting happens, and it's even pretty good for taking shots you planned on taking. It's Auto mode tends to create usable but non-distinct picture, while even it's limited customization options (ISO, EV, WB) allow you to second guess the camera to make your shots look nicer. The menu system is easy to figure out, and the size is just right to fit in a pocket or bookbag.
The main drawback to this camera is the low battery life. I use 2300mAh NiMH batteries, and they last for a max of 100 shots WITHOUT the flash. I rarely take inside shots, so I have not gauged the longevity of the camera with flash on. This is mitigated by the fact that it takes standard AAs, which allows you to easily buy a few sets to charge up and take with you, and the battery door is very sturdy and will withstand constant use. Other small gripes include the fact that the timer (2s or 10s) must be enabled for every shot, and it has a pretty badly translated manual. But this camera doesn't have many complicated functions anyways, so it doesn't matter all that much.
Overall, this is a great point & shoot and it comes at a great price. Good for a friend who has been wanting a camera, or one for you so you don't have to carry around a big EVF or dSLR.
Pros Simple to use with great colors. Best used at daytime but nighttime picture fine if taken within 10ft. from subject.
Cons 3X optical zoom not the best feature but acceptable in a pinch.
Summary I bought this camera for my mother since she was used to point and shoot 35mm autofocus. Worked great for her with no training or practice. Overall this is a simple to use camera that takes great pictures. 6.3 mega pixels a definite plus when you want 8 1/2 x 11 pictures. Absolutely no loss of quality to pictures.

Pros Simple, easy to use, takes great pictures
Cons except for no viewfinder, I can't find anything wrong
Summary This is a better camera than what I thought. It takes great pictures and is easy to use. I like it
Pros This camera does take nice photos most of the time. I've used mine for 3 years and have gotten a ton of beautiful shots out of it.
Cons Photo to photo is horribly slow. I go to a lot of concerts and trying to snap continuously is a chore and I miss a lot of moments because of that. Poor lighting gives poor photos as the flash is pretty weak too. Hardly any options and settings.
Summary Overall, I don't regret buying this camera. It's served it's purpose and I've been pleased with it more often than not. Another con is the video mode. It only records 1 minute of video at a time and you can't zoom during the recording (you can zoom in/out beforehand). The microphone is decent on it, even in really loud areas (concerts, races, etc). I definitely recommend a memory card for it. I bought one and it never gets close to being full. As far as battery life goes, this camera requires the Lithium Ion Energizer AA batteries (silver & bue). Yes, they're pricier but they give you 3 months of life. You get what you pay for with cheap batteries, and your camera will die quickly (there's no warning the battery is low until it's minutes from shutting down... and, rechargable batteries are also useless - been there, done that). The zoom is decent and can go pretty far. All in all, it does the job and it's not extremely terrible. I wouldn't exactly advise against buying this, but if you have the money to spend on a better camera, go for it!
