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...
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: 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.
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.
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!
Summary: I just assumed that all cameras nowadays had both color and b/w options. Aside from this model's other great features and its ease-of-use, this one does not give you that b/w option. I should have checked, because 90% of what I like to shoot is black and white...
Excerpt: About J Ledbetter's comment on 18 Mar 09 - 'For some reason that I can't figure out, when you put it in Program mode, it only allows for 5 mega pixels.' - Obviously he has set Fine Zoom ON, if you set Fine Zoom OFF 8 mega pixels is available in P mode.
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.
