Solidly built, easy to hold. Video functions basic but eminently practical: 320x240 .MOV files, with sound (mono) extremely economical with memory (100 minutes occupies barely half a 2 GB SD card); zoom permitted in video. For stills, there's less to be said: flash options reside on the joystick button, but toggling macro requires a painful and time-consuming dive into the menu system; focus is often less than crisp, except under close-up or macro conditions in good light or with flash; ...

Highly recommended. Excellent stills and fantastic video quality. Best of all for anyone wanting a camera for clubbing, it handles extreme sound pressures with ease.

The most interisting thing about this camera is it makes suberb quality videos in wide mode, editing in adobe premiere it was on par with a $ 1000 cancorder. Pictures are on par with small cameras , the menu is very easy no navigate. It turns on very very fast. Problems: if you use the zoon during the movie it looses focus. but that is it for it's price it is a very very good thing.
