I had this camera for my 6 year old son, who lost her camera (which borrowed my point-and-shoot enough). I wanted something very simple, but it turned out decent pictures, and that under the bill as well. It is very easy, just turn it on and press the button. The pictures came out well, the flash recharges fairly quickly (say about 6-7 seconds), and who really loves the way "film" and photos in normal mode. The zoom button is on the back of the camera (not top), a little 'getting used. Given the price, quality and simplicity, is a good car for people who want photos without any thought involved in the technical configuration. Oh, a camera and think red is cool.
