Nice point and shoot

Summary: Needed to replace a Lumix point and shoot because the lens stopped opening. This has turned out to be a good replacement. It is a nice size and has some excellent features. I especially like that I can fix red-eye right on the camera rather than waiting until after I have downloaded the pictures onto the computer.
Summary: It is a nice light camera to put in a purse. It is relatively easy to use if but the manual with the small print is not so easy to follow because the instructions are scatterd throughout the book.
Summary: I like the camera in general. It does the job for what I need it to do. I'm not a professional, I don't take snapping pictures as a serious hobby... Half of the options I don't even use. the only thing that is a little irritating is that it does Not take pictures fast enough, so sometimes you miss that moment... It is an old model (discontinued), so that should tell you something. But it works great for me to take on our trips and take pics with my daughter.
Summary: Bought this camera for my wife at a Circuit City close-out, and it worked fine out of the box. Came with a solid little case (a plus), but it had no pockets for extra batteries and memory cards. I brought it overseas and next time I went to use it for some reason the menus did not respond. After several attempts I gave up and next trip I bought another camera.
Summary: Only having used for 2 days, this is a nice little point and shoot camera. There is only moderate adjustments that you can make (ISO, White Balance, Exposure compensation), and no shutter speed or manual focus, but it takes great pictures on auto setting. The super macro is nice, letting you get as close as 1".
Summary: This is a great little camera for the price. I would put it up against any camera under $200 with comparable features. You can pick one up for around $100. Costco has them for $99 with a case and XD card. The duals stabalization works well with one exception in full auto the digital version can boost up the ISO too much in low light if you are more than 5-7 feet away from the subject (creates smudgy picture).
Summary: I purchased this camera as a gift and tested it beforehand to see if it was friendly enough for a novice digital camera user. I've been using a DSLR for a while, so I've adjusted my frame of reference for this review. The camera has a good solid feel in the hand, and the view screen has good resolution and shows the image smoothly. I compared this camera to several other similar cameras in an electronics store before I bought it at amazon.
Summary: This camera is a replacement for a super crappy one I got for free from somewhere long ago, with horrible lighting and all the other crappy features you'd expect from a crappy camera. But this one was 10 steps up. 1. I adore the color! Of course, who wouldn't? 2. Very fast first-shot time! No more than 3 secs. 3. Connects to my computer and my tv for easy viewing and sharing! 4.
Summary: I just got this camera this week and I love it. Pros: The screen is quite viewable in bright sunlight. Dual memory support gives you a choice on which media to buy. (I'm using a Class 6 4GB micro SDHC card). 5x optical zoom (the largest I've seen in this size and price range.) The iAuto is pretty smart. The camera is easy to figure out and use. Cons: I'd like to turn off the image preview that comes up right after you take a picture.
Summary: I recently bought this product and I love it! I took it with me on a holiday trip to the caribbean and after a while of fiddling with the different setting modes and lighting options the pictures came out wonderful. The blues of the water stay true in the pictures, and even the indoor artifical christmas tree lights turn out great in the right setting. I would really recommend reading the manual first to learn how to use all the settings.
