I got this to take traveling and couldn't be happier. It is small and compact which allows it to fit in my pocket or in any bag I carry. The picture quality is great, may have a bit of issues with night shots. If you want a camera to just capture memories in decent quality and does the job, then this camera is the ticket. The memory card that comes with it holds about 1900 shots at high megapixels, although recommend to download regularly.
