I've had one of these cameras for about two years now and i use it quite a lot and i have to say it is wonderful. Its traveled with me everywhere i go and it looks like new still! I've dropped far to many times and it still hasn't stopped working which is a testament to how well made it is. The quality of the images is wonderful and the addition of a flash and red eye reduction makes for some interesting party photos. Also it has a timer so everyone can get in the photo if you set it up. Well worth buying, you wont regret it.
