"Love the camera even with some of its quirks"3.5 starson by ericslick
Pros: First of all, the camera was 250 bucks. That is a major selling point for me. Takes great pics even though it takes some work to get down.
Cons: Not much customizable options for the camera. You gotta figure things out to get what you want outta the camera. The battery life is also a downer.
Summary: Well I bought this camera so that I could snap shots of stuff that I was writing articles for, mostly live concerts. Well the camera does perform but it does have some quirks that are irritating at times.
I will usually leave the camera on auto mode, not easy auto mode, to take most of my pictures. They turn out well. The large screen on the camera is a nice plus. Popping the flash up when it is needed is not as big of a deal as I thought it was going to be.
One of my biggest concerns though is the battery situation. I have gone through a tone of batteries but if you go to Wal-Mart or some other big box store you can buy a ton of triple A's for cheap. But on the other hand I am never stuck having a camera that needs its batteries recharged either.
Overall it is a great camera for its price. I would recommend it for anyone who is looking for something then a little big than just a regular digital camera.
