Summary: Bought for my wife who is a heavy camera user. After about a year of use, the lens has hung and won't retract. Seems to be a common failure mode for the unit. Does take good pictures and videos. Just don't expect it to survive more that a year of so if you are a moderate to heavy user.
Summary: After using this camera on a couple of trips, and now being familiar with its features, I have to say I'm very happy with it. I purchased this after I lost my older Exilim camera, and this smaller, lighter version is much easier to use.
Summary: I really like the camera it is one of the best I had so far. The pictures look sharper and clearer. The only thing that I don't like is the pictures it takes at night they don't come out clear; however,I haven't found a digital camera that takes good night pictures yet so that's why I took away only...
Summary: Just got the camera, and I luv it! It's a great lil camera to carry wherever you go. I have a kodak Z740 and I wanted something smaller easy to travel with. Takes excellent pictures. Zoom is okay could be better. Had trouble w/the 2 day shipping thru DHL !!
Summary: Great battery life- It is recharging (only down side is you must take it out of the camera and reset the time and date when you reinsert it to the camera). I have charged it only twice in 2 months- and I take TONS of pictures! It's 10 MP, and the picture quality is wonderful. no graininess.
Summary: Purchased this in Malaysia for $450. I own a D200 and was getting tired of carrying the heavy SLR and the lenses on my trips. I missed quite a bit of shots because of the bulky nature of SLR. This camera is very slim and fits in your shirt pocket. I always carry this camera with me.
Summary: Its an excellent camera for straight ahead no-brains picture taking, it gets the job done. Recommend getting a second battery, as it will last around ~350 shots. A 4GB SDHC card will hold ~1150 shots at max resolution.
Pros: 10 MP CCD, nice big bright viewscreen, compact size and light weight, video mode is decent quality with good audio, "Best Shot" mode has good range of selections for your specific subject (fireworks, scenery, etc.), anti-shake works very well, simple to operate, supports high capacity SD cards
Cons: Battery has to be removed to be recharged; power button on top is too small; pics seem slightly grainy
Summary: As I am only a casual photographer this review should probably be taken with a grain of salt but here ya go. I was debating between a small pocket camera like this and a larger slr, either a rebel or d40.
