sorry to be a party pooper, but I bought one of these based on good reviews and I really don't understand why people speak highly of it - I hate it! The photos are terrible.

maybe it depends what kinds of camera you've had before, but I bought this after having a better Canon Powershot - A620 - and could immediately see how much poorer the image quality is... I now have had to buy another camera to use instead.

If you're outside in bright sunshine, it will produce some ok photos, with super-vivid unreal colours that make you think you were somewhere more brightly decorated than you in fact were - in low light the photos are grainy and poor. Indoors, they're a horror show.

Having said all of that, it's ok as a spare to take to parties or places where you might lose or damage a camera.

I bought the blue one last time around (as well as getting a 2gb card for about £4 from Amazon as well. I'm very impressed with the camera.

You can actually see images taken using this exact model of camera at flickr and there are some amzaing shots considering how cheap it is. (Just don't expect to get shots that good straight away, it takes time and patience!)

I totally agree, I own one of these and wish I didn’t! They take awful pictures and come with no case or strings or anything to protect it.
On the upside they do accept large SD cards ( I put 4Gb in mine and it accepts it happily)

I bought one of these at this price last time round. I think its a brilliant camera for the price.
I do have a canon S3IS but for bright outdoor pictures I really can't see any difference between them.
Indoor and flash pictures are grainy but I believe this can be helped by adjusting the settings in manual.

Could anybody actually recommend a better camera at this price. Voted hot.

I don't know how you can take "awful" pictures with one of these - that takes a pretty high level of incompetence to achieve:p

Great price for a good point and shoot:thumbsup:

...or pretty low standards not to recognise.

did you have to make it personal against a fellow poster?

I'm just a keen amateur and have had a range of cameras from **** like this up to decent DSLRs... people who like crayon drawings won't see the difference and good luck to them in their appreciation of this.

some people think Dairy Milk is good chocolate. some people think Girls Aloud make good music.

Soooooooo can suggest a better camera for this money or in its price range?

I can't suggest a better meal than a slice of bread in its price range - if you want a decent meal you have to pay more than a slice of bread costs... I understand that for a person who can only afford a slice of bread, bread will have to do, but I was simply saying that all of the positive "dry bread is great!" reviews were difficult to understand. A slice of bread is a disappointing meal. Learn this, young one, and your dinner party will not end in rage and tears.

For many people a simple point and shot camera at this price is more than adequate. Hence you get a lot of positive reviews. If you start comparing this to the quality of far more expensive digital SLR camera then you're missing the point, as they are in different leagues. This is fit for purpose.

You don't need a nail gun to hang a picture, sometimes just a hammer will do.

If you can't take a decent photograph with one of these then you cannot take a decent photograph!

Unless you are involved in a specialist field, good photography is a combination of skill and art, with technology coming in third.

What technology can do is to help reduce the skills required in order to take a decent photograph, which this type of camera can help to do at a very low price.

Cartier-Bresson took most of his photographs with nothing more than a 50mm Leica - I bet he could have produced some decent work on "**** like this", as you so eloquently put it:p
