Cost Performace

I used this camera during my visit to Singapore. It is incredible, really! I got pictures with great quality and brilliant clarity. I just can't believe with the results I received through A2 konica. Its performance is the best; incorporates with a high-quality 8-Mpixel CCD and electronic view finder.
