I think I'd stay well clear from them.

My last few cameras have been Fuji - very happy with them

This is a waste of £99. Just don’t bother

ORIGINAL Kodak cameras were bad; this will be something made alongside FisherPrice toys.

For a reason. If you are on hols and take a fair amount of photos, you'll run the batteries down in one day. So that is new batteries every day for a week or a fortnight - not good.

If you're in the market for something like this I'd far sooner buy an ancient SLR and lens on eBay - this will be total crap.

I have actually got a Nikon bridge camera and to be honest the firmware is so bad it's really embarrassing. Doubt that this one could be any worse.

just use rechargeable batteries then... and by not relying on proprietary batteries it's much cheaper to keep a spare set as well
