very popular as you might guess. Their tiny size makes them great
for vacations, and they have an attractive feature set to boot.
Pros: Looks good and very portable, Good photo quality, Super-fast processing speeds, Movie mode with sound, as large as 640 x 480, Good bundle included with camera (including software), Available underwater case
Cons: On the pricey side for a 2 Megapixel camera, Movie recording times too short, zoom cannot be used, No manual controls

Pros: Good resolution, fairly sharp images, hardly any chromatic aberrations, White balance works well enough, presets are very good, Ultra-compact size, light weight, Sleek stainless steel body, stylish looks, Superb build quality, Very quick operation, good buffering excellent start-up and shot-to-sh...
Cons: Lens distortion / softness near edges, Blues are dull, Average macro ability, Flash doesn't have the power or the cover wide angle shots, Edge positioned tripod mount (at least it's metal!), Limited zoom (35 - 70 mm), Auto White balance doesn't work well in artificial light, Price
