I bought this camera to replace a Sony DSC-U30 mini camera, and it just may also replace my larger Sony DSC-S80 as well. I had four criteria: Less than $275, will fit in my breast pocket, and takes an SD card rather than Memory Stick, Xd or MiniSD, and image quality, of course. At first, I was a little hesitent on the image quality as there was a lot of noise on the display when in Rec mode in the store, but no such problems on the actual picture or later in brighter conditions, must've ...

What you gain in size (small), you lose in image quality... + plus it is a very small and handy camera to bring with you everywhere, lcd screen is not easily scratched, big lcd screen! - minus the focus is very loud Problems: Problems: every single picture is blurry on the right side of the photo, this is very very annoying because it completely wrecks the photo. the white balance is very off, especially with very sunny or very cloudy weather! (so in between is OK) There are different auto ...

I am more and more impressed with this camera the more I use it. Hard to take a bad picture, and the flash is great for "point and shoot". Do yourself a favor and buy this camera if your are considering it! Problems: None

Bought this for a nice pocket size camera and the 500 photos on a charge really clinched the deal. Only had it a few days - have taken over 270 photos and the battery is still showing full. The 2.7" LCD is really awesome too. Starts up really quickly and flash recharges fast. Best Shot features work really well and accessing movie mode is very quick (BS, right button, select). Problems: None as yet (touch wood!)

Bought this for my mother: Nice slim design, with respectable megapixels, long battery life, and anti-shake. I found the autofocus noisy compared with our Casio z750. I found the image quality somewhat poor (noisy/grainy). The z750 also has direct access buttons to most features, whereas the z500, you have to use a menu to select movie mode, etc. Problems: There was distortion / out of focus areas, in the right hand corner of the images. Had to return the camera.
