I would not ever recommend this camera to anyone looking for easy or enjoyable camera use. Not only does this camera break easily, but the repair company is not competent enough to fix the camera once it is broken. My camera broke after it's first use, and after sending it to get fixed for a separate problem, it came back with the inability to flash, rendering the camera completely useless at night. My family has been a patron of Kodak for years and have had a multitude of problems with their cheaper line and their more advanced product. Overalll, the company turns out poor quality product on the whole and be prepared to have to get your camera repaired if you do choose to purchase this or any Kodak product.
