What a waste of money and memories.

Summary: My girlfriend (now wife) gave me this camera before I left on an 8 month trip to SE Asia. I was excited... until I started trying to record my memories with it. The focus feature on this camera is so bad that almost every one of my pictures came out blurry or the focus took so long that the shot was missed. I ended up having her bring my heavy old Canon S30 with her to Thailand so I could have some decent pics.
Summary: I had this camera for about 8 months, bought it with an Olympus 512M xD memory card. It worked fine except for (1) poor pic quality in low light environment, even with scene mode justifications (a lot of dark dots); (2) images easily get blurred if you do not have super steady holding hands. The most annoying thing happened today: we lost all the pics taken recently in my wife's graduation celebrations.
Not a Point-and-Shoot Camera -- Ultimately Returned

Summary: The zoom, mega pixels, and brand attracted me to this camera. And at supposedly half-price, the value was also appealing. The camera and zoom looked impressive at first sight, but as soon as we started taking pictures, we were surprised to find that whenever we tried to capture a person or animal (or if our hand moved the slightest bit), the pictures would come out completely blurry.
