Excerpt: I like A1300. Shot with one hand. Important that I can take film using the optical viewfinder. Useful flash. Very good batteri capacity, because I am using viewfinder not the screen composing the picture. Useful picture information. Very good menu system. Good solid construction. Not to big for the pocket. Low price. G15 looks interesting, but is may be to big for my pockets. Problems: No problems. But would like to set the shutter or aperture manually.
Summary: My old olympus FE-140 finally stopped working after many years and lots of drops on the ground oops but was a great camera to the end So I have been looking at this and a 100 dollar Nikon. I like the fact that I can use AA batteries in this one ,and the one button to rec video works good. I have had it now around a month and so far I like it .
