Summary: I've owned this camera for 1.5 years, the camera is okay. But the images are often out of focus, unclear, or jostled. Turn off the flash, and it's even worse. I can take 20 pictures with this camera before the battery is close to being dead. The camera uses xD digital flash media... be wary of this. I sure am. It seems much slower than SD, and I don't understand why they decided to use xD, because it's terrible.
Summary: This was bought as a panic buy due to my last camera being banjaxed. Overall I am happy with the performance as being a basic novice it does what I want it to -family pics etc. There are lots of settings but I have found all my pictures to have come out clear using the 'basic' settings e.g. I don't really use night vision or panoramic. The zoom is brilliant and have captured some special pics.
