I bought this as a Mother's Day gift because her previous camera was soooooo old. When the camera arrived she was so surprised, she started using it immediately. She said it is super easy to use and the pictures and videos it takes are really crisp and clear. I would definitely recommend this for the novice photo buff as I'm not too sure about how well it would stack up to more professional grade cameras, but as a point-shoot camera goes, it's the bees knees.
I usually shoot with a prosumer DSLR, but didn't like carrying it around with me everywhere. Although this camera is still lacks some of the speed and features of my DSLR, I carry it almost everywhere I go; thus using it more than my DSLR. I wish it were a bit smaller, but other than that, I love this thing. For me it was worth the price, but those who have no problems with some deficiencies of cell phone cameras will not see the value or need of this camera.
