Pretty much what the other reviews said.

When I ordered this camera, I read the reviews. Most of them said it was very hard to see an image in the daylight or underwater thru the view finder, but that it took good pictures, and it went thru batteries fast, and it was a good little camera for the money. That is exactly what I found. The camera takes very good pictures, very compact. It eats batteries, on an 11 day cruise to the Southern Caribbean I took just over 400 pictures, maybe 100 underwater. I went thru 4 sets of batteries. It was impossible to see the screen so it was point and shoot at best. In the daylight the same thing. point and shoot and hope you got what you were looking at, or thought you were looking at. Fortunately I took enough pictures at the same scene, that I had some very good shots. The flash is very slow to charge and recharge. The battery compartment cover is very difficult to open. I probably wouldn't buy this camera again, but it did a descent job for what I bought it for. and I wouldn't recommend I to my friends.
