  • Small, but great!

    When this first arrived and I opened the package, I couldn't get over how small it was. These newer cameras are really shrinking. It has been about five years since I bought a new camera and I wanted to update. This is one of the easiest cameras to operate. I'm not that much into photography and I hate when you have to be a electronic genius to operate a lot of these newer cameras. I just like to take nice and clear pictures without the hassle of always having to go back to the manual.
