One thing which I did not think about when buying it, and which is a major disadvantage, is the absence of a view-finder. In bright sunlight, this essentially means pointing the camera and hoping for the best.
The other thing - which may prove to be just a matter of time and experience with the camera - is that the default "Best Picture" setting is automatic. All the many options for specific settings(portrait, landscape, etc) are available, but the camera does not retain one of these settings, when it is switched off; it reverts to automatic. This means that in repeated sessions where you want the same specific setting, you have to keep remembering to reset it.
Compared to the older Exilim (EX-Z750), which my wife was using on the same trip, the images are of course sharper because of the higher resolution. However, I have the impression that the colors are not as vivid; this may be related to the setting problem described above. The jury is still out.
Note: In the consumer review that I read, the results were model specific and other cameras of the same brand may/may not have the same rating.
First of all, it really is little, you could easily carry this camera around in a purse or a pocket without much discomfort.
Second, it has a fairly large preview screen for photos, so you can get a really good idea of the quality of the photo you just shot. My previous camera had a screen so small that I had to download the pictures to my computer in order to know for sure.
Third, the photos are very vivid, and very sharp. What you see is generally what you get on the photo, which is nice.
The only drawbacks we've noticed with this camera are that you can't recharge it as a unit, the battery has to be removed and charged separately, which increases the odds that you won't actually have the battery in the camera when you want to use it (an extra battery would alleviate this, but it is an annoyance we've experienced), and the power button on the very top is very, very sensitive. We've also had issues when trying to put the camera in a bag where we turn it on accidentally, and also issue where we've turned the camera off while trying to use it.
Also, as a 12.1 megapixel camera...you'll want to buy the biggest memory card you can afford, because this camera fills them up really fast.
Easy to use, excellent results, small size, 10x zoom, low price. What's not to like? Even Consumer Reports goes with this camera. This is an amateur camera for someone who wants great results without having to fool around with all sorts of buttons and controls.
The wife especially likes the soft flash added feature and Best Shot has been expanded a bit it seems.
