Summary: This was my first ever digital camera, and right from the beginning I was not overly pleased. It takes SO long for a picture to be taken, that it definitely did not suit my purposes of catching surprise moments.
Summary: My girlfriend and I have used this camera for over a year now and no matter how many setting adjustments we've made the picture never comes out right. Our problem is not with the shutter speed or the flash speed its the overall color quality of the photos.
Excerpt: I have had nothing but trouble with this camera, I have spent more on batteries than I did for the camera. It has been sent twice for service, the first time some repairs were made and I was told to use only lithium batteries, which is what I did use, the second time I don't think they even bothered...

Excerpt: I wanted a smaller camera than my Canon A60, bought this one several years back. A big mistake, this is a vey bad camera. Today i took about 30 pictures outside. 90% came out blurry / not sharp. Problems: This camera takes really bad pictures most of them are blurry / not sharp.
Summary: I got this camera as a brithday gift. At first it was sufficient and actually lasted a while but the battery life was HORRIBLE. 2 AA batteries barely lasted one night out and I found myself constantly buying new batteries.
Excerpt: Bad camera! With so many small and cheap point-and-shoots to choose from this is not the one to go for. I own a d70 with many lenses and a little samsung s500 point and shoot. I bought the E10 for my mum as a little camera since it was cheap and small, however returned it after testing it for about...
