Paid $199 at Fry's on sale (Normal $299) It is FAST! Pictures could be a little sharper on distant subjects, but $199 for a FAST 5mp is great. There is NO SHUTTER LAG!!! Very small! Problems: None Yet!

Had a sony 5mp that I really, really liked. But my brother's rca digital broke while he was visiting from California so I gave it to him. Not seeing many reviews and even fewer pictures from this camera, I bought it primarily for the speed. I am getting tired of lag time. So when I received the camera, had my buddy drop a piece of paper and I tried to catch it whenever he would drop it. Success! (His camera did it too- it was a D70). I took some tourist shots last week at the WWII ...

For me "The moment is the picture" - a lot of camera manufactures ignores that fact and makes a lot of fancy cameras with prime linses, high resolution, but with the motive gone before the camera decides to shoot. In sports action, that exact moment, and the ability to shoot continously for more than just a few seconds, were my prime reason to buy a digital camera. Started off with the Minolta A2, but in spite of all the spectacular reviews of that camera, it went back to the store after 3 ...

Simple camera which makes excelent pictures. You can zoom during macro - rare, it extends macro from 12cm to 4cm. Very fast picture review in a few steps 2, 4, 8 - effective for sharpness control.

I had problems with SanDisk ULTRA II card 256MB, it was not compatible for VGA 30fps and 15fps as well. Panasonic SDH 256MB solved the problem. The video compression is ...

This small 'gadget' is a very serious player. I was told that the S5R was extremely fast and full of features, so that was my basic drive to buy it. After a week i still feel surprised by this camera, and good for me, in a very positive way. My father also bought a 5M pix cam, but for only 100 Euro less. He never heard of shooting 3 pix a second until the card is full, 640x480 with 30 fps, and lots more options that are standard on mine. Keep this S5R in mind when considering a small good ...

I have been shooting since I was 12 (I'm 50). I've used many cameras. Yashica (first was a Electro 35 Gold). Canon. Nikon. Olympus. Contax. And for the 14 years, a Leica rangefinder. I wanted to go 'digital' but I wanted a camera that would be as light and quick as the Leica. And with a decent optics. While some digital cameras are certainly up to the task, their bulk and energy requirements were far from my desires. So in the meantime, I got a digital film scanner and continued shooting on ...
