Summary: I've had this camera for about two years and loved it. Easy to use for basic photos, it gave good results in untalented hands. The only thing that might have helped was an audio input jack for an external mike to give clearer voices in the videos. Today I sadly found the weak point. The case, with the camera inside, fell about a foot and a half onto a floor, and now it won't work.
Summary: This is probably a great camera for people who just need a point and shoot to take snapshots now and then, and the front-facing LCD is handy if you can deal with its quirks. But after having it a few months I'm just not that impressed. Here's what I don't like: - Wimpy battery - on my last outing it conked out after about 110 shots, none with flash, only a handful with both front and rear LCD on, and with the battery fully charged the night before.
