The problem with cheaper digi cams is the flash is normally too weak to be of any use. It may be fine for snapshots of the family in the middle of summer, but don't expect it to produce great photos on Christmas day with just a few candles buringin in the background.
I recently bought one of these cameras from kwik save,and returned it the next day.The batteries lasted for about 5 minutes.I then replaced the batteries with new ones.
The same thing happened again, on returning the camera i was told they have had a lot of problems with the batteries .I would advise anyone think of getting one of these cameras to think twice about it
Pixel count is not the only thing to consider; the basics for digital photography are the same as they are for film photography. No.1 priority for sharp pictures is a quality lens. After that come accurate light-metering and exposure systems, and focus systems. Without decent quality in any of these areas it does not matter how many pixels a camera has , the results will disappoint.
