This was a birthday present from my husband. Despite my initial doubts about the quality (of the camera and the pictures), I have subsequently been very pleased with some of the results I have achieved using this camera.~~~~~~
The features are very basic, this is little more thana 'point and shoot' camera, equivalent to the cheaper non-digital cameras that you can buy. See below for details on each.
This is probably the most disappointing feature for me. There is no optical zoom, just a digital zoom of x3, which means compromising image quality. For some reason it doesn't always work either (but that could just be me!).
This can be set to Automatic, On or Off. In situations where the background is light, I often found the image would become overexposed. In situations where the background is darker, I got better results.
To get the best out of this camera, I really feel it should be set to the best setting, which is 3 mega pixels. I use a 128MB memory card, and it takes over 100 images on this setting.
If you are looking for something high tech with lots of clever features, then this is not the camera for you.
However, if you want something small, easy to use, and not want to worry about carrying it around, then this is definitely something to consider.
*****I have edited to include some images to give you an idea of what can be achieved with some practice and patience.*****
