4 out of 5 eggsGreat Point And Shoot Camera

Pros: * Great for beginner
* Very useful manual mode
* Very good quality macro shots
* Compact, very solid feel.

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: * If battery could last just 30 minutes more, I would give 5 stars. I'm not saying the battery drains fast, I just wish it had a little extra charge.

4 out of 5 eggsDoesn't keep date and time settings

Pros: Love the camera; plenty of default settings, 5x optical zoom with the option to turn off digital zoom.

Cons: Not really a con for me but may be to others, mine does not save the time and date settings. I don't have them appear on the images and videos so it's not really a problem, not sure if it is just mine or if others have had the same problem.
