In addition you will need to purchase additional battery's as well. They do not last long. So if you are on the road with only 1 battery with no other's charge. You will be stuck without a camera !
The lens on the S50 is of non-protruding kind, automatically covered when the camera is off.
This camera features a number of automatic scene modes, plus two automatic modes accessible with two tiny buttons on the top of the camera (anti-shake and portrait), plus a special High ISO mode. The range of manual controls is very limited. RAW file output is not possible.
The menu system on this camera is multi-level; the menus change depending on which mode the camera is on. This in turn requires jumping through several windows to change controls; this can sometimes be confusing. For example: The ISO control is in the Shooting menu, where the VR on/off control is in the Setup menu. Furthermore, if the flash is turned on, it will not fire in the BSS (best shot selector) mode, which is understandable. However, turn the self-timer on, and the flash will fire; to turn the flash off, you would need to first turn the BSS off, and only then you could reach the flash modes menu.
Look for on-line reviews with sample pictures to decide if the picture quality this camera produces will satisfy you. In my opinion, the pictures from S50 are noisy, soft, and over-sharpened. However I am willing to put up with so-so performance to have a camera that is as small as this one. If you are prepared to carry a bigger camera, you can definitely find one that takes better pictures.
Very pretty red color
Easy to use - Very comparable to other digital cameras I have used
Decent price - Again compared to other cameras with around 7.2 MP
Many nice features - video, etc
View finder is located in a poor area - people tend to put their fingers over it when they take a picture
The zoom - is not as impressive as I had hoped
Not particularly durable - I have dropped this camera only once and the silver side paneling had cracked and chipped.
