Summary: I am pleased for the most part I feel the person selling this should have informed everyone that it was an older model. I had problems finding a memory card for this item due to the fact that it is older. But I did find one and it takes excellent pictures.
Summary: I bought this camera to have an economical zoom for pictures in the marshes of southeast Georgia. Kayaking can destroy an expensive camera quickly. I like the simplicity and ease of access of controls. Very good picture quality for an older model. I also have the dock for this camera which keeps the batteries charged and ready to go. Overall a better deal than losing my newer and more expensive cameras.
Summary: I have much more safisticated cameras. I wanted this one because the resolution is good enough for internet use and it has a docking station which keeps the batteries charged and ready to go when you need it plus it's connected right to the computer for uploading photos.
"Wonderful camera , not a single bad pic for over 5 months ."
24 February 2005
Pros: Great zoom , accurate focus , good low light pics in manual exposure mode at ISO 100. Amazing detail in closeup pics ( macro mode ) . Good menu .
Cons: Slow save . No hot shoe . Bad Red eye compensation. Best pic quality only at ISO 100 , f4.0 and best compression mode. auto mode can be improved further since camera is capable of producing much better results using manual modes.
