Strengths:    light, cheap

Weaknesses:    Loses pictures easily when plugging it into the USB port.

Bottom Line:   
I'm very dissappointed in the quality of the pictures as bright areas are always overexposed and shadows are underexposed. Pictures are lost easily just by plugging it into the USB port. This is unacceptable. Perhaps there is a trick to it, but I lose all the pictures about 75% of the time.

Date Reviewed: November 26, 2002

Strengths:    It has an auto shut off/

Weaknesses:    The battery cover comes off easily, and if there is no power there are no pictures, so you can loose your picture easily, and when connecting to the usb port it will reset your camera thus loosing your pictures. So if the pictures you are taking are not that important to you buy this camera

Bottom Line:   
Over for the price of the camera it is ok, I have owned several digital cameras (3 to be exact)this is the fourth one. I would have rather gotten something else
