Summary: This camera's pretty good, but does not shoot well in low light, and the macro does not have a very good depth of field. For the amateur photographer that's just looking for a decent but inexpensive camera, this is the one.
Summary: I am no photographer, but I didn't want to lug around my Canon digital SLR or whatever the initials are at Disney World. That one I had paid $1200 for so I just wanted a lighter camera, and Good Housekeeping raved about this.
Summary: I'm not a camera nut - my wife wanted a good point and shoot camera that didn't require constant tweaking to settings. I had high hopes - but this fell short. We took this camera to Disney. We took over 400 pictures - and maybe got 50 to 75 usable ones and those were all set in the daylight hours.
Summary: It would have been helpful if it was clear that this requires the purchase of a memory card to take more than a dozen pictures. It may be user error on my part, but to get the camera and then have to place another order for the card is a hassle.
