Very nice pictures most of the time.
S-L-O-W shutter speed and you miss the fast pictures. Plastic body will not hold up for more than about 3 - 4 years. Lens cap won't stay on. Very small viewer. No stabliizers.
The battery cover breaks easily and in 3 different stress points. The replacement cost for the battery cover is more than half the cost of a newer camera with more features, more zoom, more megapixels. This camera will last about 3 - 4 years with normal use. The battery pressure on the battery cover will be an inescapable issue. If this model is even still around, skip it in favor of something more up to date.
