Not worth the money.

by A customer on 9/23/2010

I am very dissapointed in the quality of pictures this camera takes. The photos are grainy and dark. I have tried several different settings and I always have to import the photos into and editing program and adjust the image. I had a 6 mega pixel Cannon that took beautiful pictures and I expected the same quality. This camera is overpriced due to having the touch screen feature.

The lens is ultra Wide-Angle, with a focal length of 24mm. That puts more image in every shot for visual excitement and a high-end feel. And the best part?
