Summary: I realize that the average consumer digital camera is getting better and better, offering more megapixels and packed with more features, so I can't say this is the best out there by any means. But I can say that it is the best camera that I HAVE EVER OWNED. This is the first camera I have owned that picks the right lighting and decides when to use the closeup lens.
Best optical quality, especially for ultra wide-angle shots

Summary: These are amazing cameras for the money. They come very close to the Panasonic ZS-x family, lacking only the GPS feature, while being MUCH more compact. DSLR photographers will appreciate the VR-330 in the same way that pro film photographers loved the Stylus Epic point-and-shoot film cameras of the late '70s and early '80s. I wanted an inexpensive point-and-shoot with top notch optics and a 24mm equivalent wide-angle, and I am delighted with the VR-330.
Summary: We got this camera for our teenage son, and I have ended up using it quite a bit because I like it better than my Canon camera. It is small but has all of the features of larger cameras. It takes nice pics which is the bottom line for me. All of the controls are located in roughly the same location and operate about the same as most of today's point and shoot cameras. I felt the first reviewer was extremely harsh.
Summary: Just purchased to replace an aging Nikon. Everything working and as easy as the Nikon. Zoom is a finger touch at the exposure button. Pictures are easy to take. I take over 100 pictures at each job I do, so it's not like I am unfamiliar with cameras. I do wish there was an external charger rather than having to use the camera for a charger base. I have no clue as to how many pictures I can take between charges but we shall see. More to come as I do more with the camera.
Summary: Using this camera is cumbersome. The controls are right in the way when gripping the camera and changes settings when not intending to. Also, the flash is on the wrong side for right handed people. My fingers interfere with the flash. I use this for work (company supplied)and never can get a decent flash picture indoors. Pictures turn out exposure wise better without the flash, but if you don't hold the camera perfectly still, everything will blur.
Câmera razoável, não recomendada para usuários mais exigentes.

Summary: A câmera no geral da para ser utilizada, mas com restrições na iluminação do ambiente. As fotos noturnas são muito ruins (muito claras na área de foco e muito escuras fora da área de foco) mesmo com flash - testei todas configurações possíveis. O zoom é bom, mas somente até chegar certo ponto porque as fotos começam a ficar distorcidas, mesmo sem chegar ao zoom digital. As fotos tiradas sob iluminação do sol até que ficam boas, dependendo da configuração usada.
