Summary: Got this in August. I like the compact size for carrying around in my pocket. However, the small size of the screen can be maddening with my male fingers. The photos are clear. I think the delay between pushing the shutter button and the actual picture taking is too long. The few avi's I've taken have been pixelated. Maybe I need more practice. This week the lens would not close. I'd power on the camera, the lens would extend, then the camera would turn off.
OK camera when the battery is fully and recently charged

Summary: My wife bought it. The camera works reasonably well when the battery is charged, she said. But the camera is not ready when she wants to use it, as the battery won't stay charged after charging it up and letting it sit for a while. I suggested that she charge it more frequently, even though she may not use it right away. She shouldn't have to do this, as the specs say she can take 200 shots on a charged battery.
Summary: I used credit from squaretrade to get this when my other camera died. This is a nice little camera, with two flaws. If you want to take widscreen (15:9) pictures, it will only take them at 12 megapixels and not 16. You have to take fullscreen photos at 16mp. The other thing, is the touchscreen.
Summary: This camera takes good photos and is fairly easy to use. The main problem I have had is in regard to the connector that is used to charge the battery while in the camera. The connector developed a short the second time I tried to charge it. Now I have to remove the battery and put it in an external charger. You also have to remove the Scan Disc and put it in a card reader. So essentially there is no longer any direct camera / computer connection. Poor construction.
Summary: This camera was highly rated. It is quite compact and easy to carry. The pictures it takes are not the best. Good focus is difficult to attain. One must have a very steady hand to avoid some blurriness. The lightness of the camera may be part of the challenge to avoid movement during a shot. Otherwise, it is very convenient to tote and use.
