This digital camera has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
High megapixels
Advanced flash
Get creative with picture effect
The life of the party
you see the perfect shot, simply hit the dedicated movie recording button to start shoot
Dedicated movie button
Ure the moments that matter with 720 HD recording for clear, detailed vid

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each digital camera by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age and value for money.
