  • Pros: Great pictures when it works
  • Cons: It's never ready when you are. Poor bat. life. Lens gears fail, Flash not working, Lens opens even when not in camera mode, usb socket bad (not cable). Unless you use this camera daily the imposible menus will keep you confused and frust forever.

  • Summary: I've had nothing but problems with this camera. I just had it repaired--again-- and again it turns off right after I take a picture.Given the cost of repair ($175), I will no longer send it to their Long Island facility and instead I will throw it in the trash. I am now researching Canon cameras.
