Excerpt: This is my second digital camera. Although it is larger than others it is a great camera. This would be a great camera for those new to digital photography. Coupled with the docking station and rechargeable batteries downloading pictuures to your computer is a breeze.
Excerpt: Had it 6 months now (600 pics?) Small enough for a jacket pocket. Excellent flash - non-flash very low light pics not so great. 4x zoom an advantage over all those 3x rivals. Batteries last for ever if you use the viewfinder mostly (I got NiMH rechargeables but LiIon one-shots would do).
Excerpt: This is my 4th Digital Camera and I've had it 10 months. Overall a very easy and good camera to use. Autofocus and flash are one of the best I've used. Excellent low light focusing and great flash range.
Excerpt: An Excellent camera. I got the camera based on the features and the 4x optical zoom, which gives the user a little bit more zoom than a 3x optical. Great Point and shoot camera. The best thing is that it still have some manual controls for the user to use.
Summary: I've fought getting a digital for years...I'm a scrapbooker who loves her Cannon Rebel 35mm. Anyway, the 35mm tends to be too bulky to put into your pocket on those little trips. My husband who is a "techie" thought I was insane to by a 3.1 when there are affordable 4.0-5.0's on the market.
Excerpt: An excellent Camera. I just pop it into my pocket and go out to take photographs. Very pleased with the results both indoors and out. Easy to use, but avoid the software, I would recommend buying a card reader and using that, much easier. Problems: None at all.
Excerpt: I got this camera because it is the only pocketable 4x zoom and of course great reviews. I find the camera takes very consistent pictures indoors & out. The autofocus is normally fast plus decent in low light and the shot lag time is very quick so I disagree with others who found it otherwise.
Excerpt: In reply to Anne Stones review, Iam sorry you have had a hard time with the software, but you really don't need the easy share software to transfer pics, to be more specific just instal the camera connection software on the disc but not the image viewing software, and then the camera just appears in...
Summary: What an incredible camera this is. My first digicam was a 1.2mp Olympus, which i loved and still use sometimes. Then last summer i "upgraded" to a nikon coolpix 3100. I hated that camera. Took great outdoor shots, but my indoor ones were dark and blue-tinted.
Summary: This camera exceeded my expectations in relation to ease of use. The joystick is a great idea and works well. The display looks great and the interface easy to move around in. Zooming is a breeze with this camera and it is the smallest available with a 4x zoom.
