Default Olympus c-211 questions

Hello, I'm thinking about getting one of these for my sister at college. Is the film expensive and is it easy to operate? I have found a refurb. for $165.00, and think this is a good deal??? The printer option is cool, but I wonder if it works like it says? Thanks for the great forum, Mark

I was looking at that at Office Max two months ago, it was $111 at closeout, I looked at the reviews and they were not bad.
I was going to get it for my wife, but thought cost per print was way too much.
The Poloroid film is very expencive! and it takes very small pictures(wallet size) only.
It uses Smart media, so as a digital camera it is fine, but very big because of the printer, to me it is a Poloroid with a digital camera atatached.
go like I did, get the HP 130 4X6 printer and a small 2mp digital camera.
