Ive had this puppy for about 3 months now and its great. Not sure what all the complaints are about blurry pictures because it has a feature called stabilization mode which prevents blurry pictures from taking place. There are over 20 different scene modes which allow you to adjust on the fly. I've been able to take pictures for landscapes, family photos, and goof around with it. Me and a friend were able to navigate the menus and take photos with one hand because the other hand was being used to ward off the other person from trying to take the camera. This is a fun and easy to use camera. Shutter speed is slow and if your taking pictures without the stabilization mode you need to hold the camera correctly and squeeze slowly for the shot. Being that its as small as you can get for a camera this isn't anything unexpected. Good bang for your buck.
***2 -yrs later*** Camera is still holding up strong and taking great pictures.
Cons: Battery life is abysmal. If I leave battery in camera without use, it is usually dead by the time I get around to using it. Bought an extra battery with charger so I can swap it out when I need to. Can't tell you how many times I've gone out and took a couple of pictures before the battery died. Other than that, it's a good camera.
