Summary: Very disappointed in this camera. I'm no camera expert, I wanted something good but compact to take with me everywhere to capture all those spontaneous moments with my daughter. Quality of pictures is fair with ideal conditions and the pre-programmed settings don't seem to help much. For instance, even with minimal movement and on "Sport" mode, I haven't been able to take a single non-blurry picture.
Summary: I received one free on a Mattress sale promotion at Macy's. It had a permanent dull spot in the sensor which produced a spot in every photo (yes, the lens was clean). But, I loved the camera, so I bought a replacement from Amazon. This second one had a defective flash. It worked a couple of times, then quit. I tried resetting to factory settings, various program modes, recharged the battery, inserted a new battery, and tried forced flash but still no flash.
Summary: The camera arrived a day earlier than stated which then involved a trip to the post office as I was not in when delivered. Not a big problem but this caused an unwelcome trip into town the next day. Packaging good and undamaged however it took several attempts to start the battery charging process which caused me some concern.
