Summary: I got this camera less than a year ago and loved it! I used it all the time, it always took great pictures. It was able to focus fairly well aswell. Unfortunately, less than a year after, my camera would shut down and say "Battery Exhausted". Obviously, I replaced the batteries many times and put lots of research into tutorials on how to fix the problem. I even had photographers help me out - nothing.
Summary: I use this camera for my job. I chose this camera because it offers 640 X 480 image size plus the zoom length and wide angle (just be aware to steady camera when zooming). I take about 500 photos per day, and my rechargeable AA batteries last about 700 photos. Mostly pleased; I only wish I could find filters (to protect the lens mostly) but it seems to be an odd size.
Summary: excellent pics outside and indoor pics. good automatic adjustment settings. wish there was a way to take lens cap off. excellent piece especially for taking ebay pics. video quality indoor and outdoor also very good.
Summary: A great camera for beginners. I've been using this camera for a a year now, Shot a lot of pictures and videos as well. It uses AA batteries, so i advise you getting some rechargeable batteries. When taking videos, it's a one click button, also the mic is pretty good as well. It takes pictures in both standard and widescreen. Don't know if it's just mine or not, but when you point at a light source, there's a streak of light in the view finder.
Summary: Great camera, takes great pictures and video. The only negative things are that it doesn't take panorama pictures (I knew this before buying the camera, but I still think that a camera of this price and being kind of recent model should take panorama pictures, I mean, even cellphones can take them) the other thing is that it makes a lot of noise when is focusing, but that might an isolated case.
