I bought this item after noticing that all of the reviews (at the time of purchase) were just glowing and all 4 and 5 stars. I thought: "Man, this must be one great camera for the price!" The Nikon and other cameras didn't fair so well in the reviews, and so I really was drawn to this one. When I got it, the picture quality was horrible! It was pre-set tot he highest setting possible (like 4600xsomething) and the pictures were so grainy and blurry in parts! The display is very grainy as well. I have a really good DSLR, and I didn't expect this camera to live up to that. Yet, my DSLR is 8MP and this camera is 16MP, and the DSLR is not only better (as is expected) but still WAY better! My DSLR is an old camera too! When I went back and looked over the reviews to see just why it is that people were so raving over this camera when it is so bad, I started to notice that the reviews sounded fake. They were too glowing and didn't sound like what real customers would write and there were just too many of them like that. Then I went and tried to leave a review, and I was unable to do so. I contacted Walmart, and they said they were working on the problem. Now all of a sudden I can write the review. Imagine that! Don't believe the hype. I returned mine, and I do not know what I am going to buy now, if anything. I wanted a smaller camera for various reasons to supplement our big DSLR. This camera is NOT IT!
