Cheap ... but looks like a rugged camera (I doubt it is) :]

Digital Shake Reduction, Electronic IS included ... so ... no practical IS (pumps the ISO to lower exposure time = more noise)... :/ ... it would be nice at this price…

Even so ... at 100$ you really can’t complain…

For 100$ it’s not that bad, but sure, i’ve seen cheaper cameras (there aren’t many) delivering the same kind of quality…

Yo no soy español pero:
Por 100 $ no es tan malo, pero seguro, he visto más barato cámaras (no hay muchos) que muestra el mismo tipo de calidad de la imagen ...

This camera is only good for someone on a very tight budget…. but there are better ones (at the same price range)...

This camera sucks! Picture quality is ok. It’s light weight, but its so bulky. Why not just make a thinner case? Also, the lid cover for the battery is so sensitive to the touch. It opens up so easily. There’s no lock to keep it in place. So if your holding the bottom edges with your thumbs, your right thumb will have enough pressure on there that it will open.  WTF kind of design is this??? 

I bought it at newegg for $149. What a ripoff! If I could of returned it I would have.  I bought this while visiting the states, but by the time I received it, I was going back to my country. I didn’t want to deal with the hassle of returning it.  So now, I’m stuck with this crappy camera that cost me $149.

you can get a really cheap kodak for 40 or 50 dollars and will do better than this piece of junk.

The image quality of this camera was really disappointing, even in good lights situation, the camera make fake pictures with details were digitally corrected in a really disturbing way. Some mobilephones, make better pictures than this camera.
