PERFECT for kids. At this price, it's well worth it, as they sell for about 79.99 NEW on Amazon, and I'm sure it'd get much more use than those disposable cameras (made by the same people, go figure)
Seriously though, this camera is rated about 4+ stars everywhere you look, and though it might not be anywhere NEAR the quality of a $300 camera, for $40 it's about the best you'll probably find.
As for the megapixels... More megapixels does NOT mean better quality photos... it just means you'll have quality prints pending on the megapixels. I know 10+ are good for 16x20 or something like that, and anything extra is overkill. The quality of the photo itself deals more with ISO control, lighting, etc. but I doubt this camera will be that enhanced in features... but like I said... it's good for $40.

Kodak point-and-shoot cameras always seem to have the best optics for the price range within which the camera lies. I am amazed at how sharp and clear images are all the way out to the edges.

But, not bad for the price. Just dont expect to get more than 50 pictures out of two standard batteries.
AA batteries = convenient. Instead of worrying about your proprietary batteries losing their charge, you can use your AA rechargeables, or, if in a real pinch, alkalines. Who doesn't have plenty of AA nimh batteries these days?

I can't see spending over $100 for a point and shoot when a decent "real" (DSLR) can be had for around $400, with interchangeable lenses and several more adjustable options.
Enlighten me - where do you get a decent DSLR with lenses for $400?
