3 out of 5 eggsGets the job done

Pros: Works as advertised. Takes good pictures.

Cons: It does not come with a wall charger. You have to plug a USB cable directly to the camera. If you get spare batteries, this is a hassle to use the camera as a charger.

LCD resolution is low for 3" display. When previewing, you see aliased lines on the edges.

No option to adjust JPEG quality (Basic - Fine)

Other Thoughts: I take hundreds of pictures in an indoor environment with good lighting and Eye-Fi to wirelessly send the pictures directly to a server. Overall, this camera gets the job done without spending too much fiddling with it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Camera For Non Professionals

Pros: Photography has always been a interest of mine.
So I wanted something I could understand, but powerful enough to take high quality photos.
One feature I like is that the ISO can go way past 400.
The features have improved but have not changed drastically compared to my Panasonic LUMIX DMC-LC33 from 2003.
BTW, it still works like new.
I just couldn't pass up this deal of a fair price & high quality in sync.
Here's a good site I like with unbiased reviews.

Cons: As someone else said, I will have to get use to no more viewfinder. It was just something I got use to having.
But the 3" LCD screen should compensate for not having one.

Other Thoughts: In the Steve's Digicam review,
The mention of the "missing" three iA (Intelligent Auto) modes is actually something I will NOT miss.
I rather be in full control of the settings.
Otherwise, I could of bought a simpler and cheaper camera with Auto settings.
