Pretty delicate camera. Buy a case for it.
on July 25, 2014
Nice little cheapo camera, but treat it with kid gloves. The view screen is very delicate. I used mine for 3 days and managed to get some great shots. BUT it was kept in my shirt pocket. When I fired it up today, the screen was a black and white op-art display. I took it to the local camera shop and was told the inside glass layer was cracked and could not be repaired for less than the cost of a new camera. I explained it was not handled roughly and they said they had seen it happen before just by being kept in a pants or shirt pocket. Apparently, it should be kept in a case (which does not come with the camera). I'm going back to my old Canon Digital Elph that has never had a glitch in nearly 10 years except a dead battery and only 3x zoom. Lesson learned.
