Too many features
I guess the worst thing is it didn't come with a users manual, it has to be downloaded, and their site doesn't work. So I'm stuck with a camera that doesn't focus where I want it to focus, I get these green squares that bracket everything but the item I want to focus on. It takes OK pictures, but file is huge - 3MB plus. Want to anger your friends?try emailing several photos. I keep getting this "LIVE" icon in the corner. What's that supposed to mean? It has a cell phone type lithium battery. I can't tell from the icon how much life is left in the battery. there is no simple menu item to show battery life. The external charger has no cord, just two prongs that flip out to plug into a socket. you have to remove the battery to charge it. The flash is in the left corner at the top, so if you use two hands to hold the camera, make sure you don't cover the flash, especially if you have gloves on. If you try to use one hand, you have to be especially careful where you put your thumb, or you will hit the function/scroll button. Which has multiple functions, It is labeled Eco, delete/auto, flash, Disp. Other times it is a scroll button, but its not marked with arrows, so you have to guess what is going to happen when you press it. I used to have a canon A560, which was a great camera -7.1 mega pixels, until I dropped it and cracked the battery door. but I used and abused it a lot, and couldn't put it into my shirt pocket,so when the lens stopped coming out I upgraded.

Not working, never worked
When you buy the camera, it should be workable out of the box but this camera did not work.
I am going to try and get a memory card to see if I add a new memory card, I might be able to get it to start.
Yes, the battery is fully charged.

Super Easy! Try it for yourself!
It doesn't get much easier than this! It's point and shoot, right out of the (after charging the battery) was snapping great pictures!
For those that complained about no software and support did not examine this page. I downloaded the PDF manual to my phone and read it while the battery was charging. Software is available for download on this site under support.
Low price, high quality, I'm all for it!

I previously owned a Canon A560 and purchased the A2500 because I thought it might have new features. Takes a lousy picture. Very dark even when using the flash. So dark I can barely make out the subject in the picture. Worse mistake I ever made.
