Cool, $130 And Easy To Use. Basic Point And Shoot.
   One of the main reasons that you may decide to purchase one of these cameras is for the compactness of the camera. We have a large D40x Nikon and you have a big bulky bag and two lenses to carry around with you at all times, not to think about also losing this it is very cumbersome to lug about on your vacation.
