I saw this camera in the store and I said to my mum "this is the one. I want that one. It's perfect". As a teenager I go out to parties and to the beach. I'm sure those are two main places that cameras get broken. MINE WONT THOUGH! I love that I don't have to worry about dropping it, or spilling something on it. I had my friends over for a pool party and they look hundreds of photo's underwater. They absolutely loved it and I got so many compliments about how it was such an awesome camera. I feel that the only thing I would change about this camera would be the speed in which the photo's are taken. I find myself having to wait a while and I can't take photos in quick succession which was unfortunate during a concert when the singer came really close and I couldn't get a really good photo.
