5 out of 5 eggsGreat Camera For The Price

Pros: Take great outdoor pictures, Close ups and Great for everyday uses and travel. Perfect to fit in pockets.

Cons: Doesn't work very well in dark areas but still not a big deal to me since I shot most during the days.

Other Thoughts: This is a nice compact camera, works great with 4GB sandisk ultra and rechargeable batteries like energizer nimh batteries. Very affordable and can go a long way if you know how to take care of it. Going to order another one soon as christmas present to one of my relatives.

1 out of 5 eggsI have made a mistake

Pros: Nice buttons layout
Several shooting mode available

Cons: Take extremely bad photo (OK at daylight, bad at indoor and worse at night)
No manual control

Other Thoughts: I purchased this camera for my mother, a very simple camera so it's easy to teach her how to use it. However, the quality of the photos it taken were really bad. 9 out of 10 of the photos taken indoor or at night were blurry and lack of focus, much worse than my old Canon Powershot SD400. I tried all the shooting mode available but it didn't help much. Most of the pictures taken at night had the weird "snowing" effect. This is a really awful camera. Unacceptable!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for barebone camera

Pros: Super fas startup, as soon as you press the on button you can take a picture! It does amazing close up and the video quality is great as well. The audio recording in video is mono, so a bit bland, but over all as a camera and video recorder it has your basic needs.

Cons: Excessive smoothing is random. When you are take a closeup of grainy base stuff like fur, dirty, etc it will sometimes smooth it, while other times take the perfect picture. Also its great you can manually adjust your exposure but nothing about focus or shutter. The last bit that always gets to me is you can't move much. I guess its combed over by the 20+ photo settings, but I would have liked more manual control. It says anti vibration, but it does not help on a moving body, which is a shutter speed issue.

Other Thoughts: Overall the picture quality is amazing but getting that great picture can involve work. Its defined as a point and shoot and its just that, so don't expect this so the the ultimate camera, given its price point and categorization.

Oh also there are a few type of lens you can but for this camera, like fish eye lens. So you can accessories!
