  • It can take very clear images…
  • Its pictures are good enough that you can view them at their full size without losing any major details…
  • However, while its image quality is impressive, its design could use some refinement…
  • Indeed, despite its simplicity you won't be disappointed with the fine detail this camera can capture; you'll be able to crop your images closely without making them look awful…
  • It used to be that cheap cameras shot poor, grainy images filled with noise…
  • Want a camera that's easy to use and can take great pictures…
