4 out of 5 eggsSolid

Pros: Easy to use.

Good image stabilization makes it easy to take pictures even for a relatively novice photographer.

The optical zoom performed well and made it easy to zoom in on faces even from some distance.

I was pleasantly surprised by the 'enhanced' digital zoom on top of the optical for the really distant shots. It gets a little hard to hold the camera steady enough there but still was relatively easy to use.

I didn't get into any of the advanced features, but it works well, even without pressing any of the other buttons.

Cons: None, really. Performed as advertised.

Other Thoughts: Got it for a family vacation, and everyone had a try with it. It was definitely the popular camera for the trip and nobody had any trouble with. Not even Grandpa with his fat fingers and general lack of tech-savvy.
My mom liked it enough that I left it with her as her Christmas present, so I'm back at NewEgg to buy another.
