5Great Pictures, Great Price!
By Patrick Flanagan
I honestly don't know how any other review could give this camera 1 star. Sure, it isn't the best camera, but it's a CHEAP camera! I bought this camera so I could review it on my youtube channel. At first, I was skeptical, and I didn't expect much. After taking a few shots, I was afraid I had made a bad choice. However, I know that cameras aren't that simple, so I decided to try a few different options. After playing around with the camera a little bit, I was able to get some amazing shots!
This is not a bad camera! It is an amazing camera for this price! I disagree that the average smartphone camera is any better than this camera. Even though some of the newer smartphones may be able to compete, this camera is still amazing! You can take great pictures if you know what you are doing! Even if you don't know what you are doing, once you get used to the camera, your pictures will look beautiful!

I will try to upload some of my photos in a few minutes.

1worse camera ever
By Kathy Adamski
flash works when set to off. goes in and out of focus on its own. cannot press halfway down to focus. takes picture when it wants to and the color is never what you see in the lens.
