Pros: Takes good pictures in full sun light. Very impressive HD video. easy to use on screen menu.
I took some pictures out door in day light using the cameras' automatic setting, the pictures came out in good quality. In addition I tried the video and the result was impressive.

Cons: Does not work very well in low light environment with the cameras' automatic setting. However, I found that it can take pretty good pictures when I used the manual setting, which I found very easy to use.

I looked around for a nice digital camera in the ballpark of $100. I was about to get the Olympus fe when I found this camera. I've used it for a couple of days now and have found it to be very intuitive and fun to use. Ease of use of a digital camera is an important feature for me and this camera stacks up in every way. The HD video camera is a great feature as well. So far we have been very impressed with the quality of the pictures that our new camera takes.

I would recommend this as a great point and shoot digital camera.

Camera is small and I can put it in my shirt pocket. Pictures taken with flash are great. Pictures taken outside are excellent, but if I am in the shade taking a picture, everything in the sun is washed out. I'm still trying to figure out what needs to be done to stop that. The HD Movie part is disappointing. Bought the camera from Amazon. As usual, they delivered in record time.

This camera rocks my socks! I love it, it looks awesome with its black, sexy, chicness. It has awesome effects like punk, fish-eye, panorama etc. It takes clear pictures inside and out with effects like indoor, sunset, fireworks, cuisine, night, sport, and landscape. It feels light but also feels durable. It comes with the cables that you can hook it up to your TV and see the pictures on your camera on your TV, and videos...that is really cool! It is easy to learn how to use it. The sound and picture on the videos is clear. This is just a really good camera and its my third digital camera and it is my best so far. If you are looking to buy this one, you should. When I was looking to buy one, I researched a lot, and I mean a lot, and then I found this one and am so glad that I bought it. I love it! And I know you will too :D

This camera was a Christmas present for my son. Its a great starter camera, easy to use, tough and water proof. Camera is easy to use because there are only a few buttons on back of camera to worry about. Only thing needed is a memory card.

It's a simple, easy camera to use, but there is no "real"
Image Stabilization in this camera.
They boost the ISO and open the Aperture for a faster shutter speed,
but this is not very effective and I found that 2 out of 3 images were
slightly out of focus.
Even when I made certain I got the lighted green focus box
on the LCD saying that it was in focus the images were still blurred.

I know other reviewers have had better luck, so this may be user shake, or
the particular camera that I received, but if you want to take a quick shot
be aware there is NO IMAGE STABILIZATION in this camera and that makes
quite a difference especially when you zoom all the way in for close ups.
It's almost impossible to keep a camera this light and small still.
I returned mine to Amazon. They are great about returns, so I tend to
buy almost exclusively from them on line.

If you can afford it spend a bit more and get a P&S camera with a LOT of
good ratings with actual image stabilization.

I researched many cameras for a replacement for my aging and bulky Sony digital camera. I was looking for features comparable to my Sony as I didn't want to downgrade. I found this camera to be rich with features and a few that others didn't have.

Size was a big factor and this does not let down.

I would buy over and over, highly recommended.

Only thing that held back for full 5 stars is the physical location of the flash. I find it is located too close to action button and seem to have a lot of fingers in the way. After a few weeks I got used to holding the camera in a way to overcome this.

Camera is still going stron even after a few drops by my 4 yr old daughter. The lens does have a retracting issue every now and then most likely from the drop. Still takes great pictures and is pretty good on the tri-pod as well.

I was very disappointed with this camera, the picture quality was not the greatest. Some of my pictures were very blurry or not focus at all. I tried messing with the settings but it was always set to auto focus. Another issue I had with the camera was that it would never connect to the computer. I tried different cables and USB ports without any luck. I wanted to wait longer before I return it to give it another chance but when I used it to record my daughter's first performance it recorded everything except my daughters performance. When I tried playing back the video on the camera it would just say file error. The last thing I didn't like from the camera was the fact that I couldn't zoom in or out while recording.
