Not a bad camera but not the best.

Advantages: high zoom and high quality standard pictures
Disadvantages: Batteries, up close work and plasticy casing.

You cant really argue when someone offers you a camera for free can you? But when it has more megapixels and more optical zoom than the slightly older model you already have and does not perform as well, you do have to ask youself, is it all worth it? ...
