Got this as a back up camera that I can ""throw around"" and not be too worried if I lost it or scratched it up. Please take note that if you get this you'll also need to get two batteries and a SD card (32gb or LESS) otherwise you won't be able to play with it out of the box. The design is not bad, with grooves on the sides for better grip. It is a relatively easy camera to figure out, and I did not even need to read the instruction manual as a lot of it is common sense from having used numerous other cameras. It also comes with a velvet pouch for storage and carry. It might not be the best or clearest quality but this is an off brand so don't expect SONY/CANON/etc quality. I can't wait to bring this to beach/lake trips with us since it is somewhat waterproof, but I probably won't be dunking it in the water in hopes of getting more life out of this camera. I got this not for the purpose of letting a child use but If you have younger kids this is definitely a good one to let them play with instead of your higher end cameras / cellphone cameras.
