I had this camera, then I upgraded to the Nikon CoolPix L120. After using the Nikon, this camera felt so cheap and hard-to-use.
The zoom is upsetting, and he worst part about this camera is the screen - it's small, low resolution, and VERY hard to see under sunlight.
It's not a bad camera or anything - it's a great camera for taking "happy snaps".
