I found this camera brand new for about $100 (after shipping) - and it's a great value at this price! Problems: If you read the other reviews, then you know that this camera isn't going to blow away users with superb image quality or usability. What makes up for those shortcomings is that the camera is simply amazing as an everyday use, fun camera. I've let children around 5 years of age use this thing and they had lots of fun taking pictures. Really, if a kid who is in kindergarten can ...

I bought this camera after using and loving my friend's. It's a great little camera, a lot of my friends think its really neat. It takes good quality photographs that look awesome as 4x6 prints. They are sharp and the color is accurate. The AF works well as long as you depress the shutter halfway and then push down the rest of the way. A lot of ppl tend to have a problem with this and when my friends take photos, they are sometimes blurry or my friends have to try a few times before ...

I bought this camera 4 months ago, knowing it's limitations. This is a small compact camera. I think it is Great! People seem to castigate it's smallness and say it doesn't have this or that? Tell me where can you put a screw for a tripod on a camera that is 4" x 2.5" x 3/4" and what can you expect from a battery that is 2" x 1 1/4" x 1/4"??? Actually you get a lot for your money ! There is so much control on such a small instrument! OK it gets scratched if you carelessly put it down and ...

Swivel lens is very effective, and seems to be solidly built. Using a Panasonic 256 mb SD, which supports Sandisk Ultra II speeds (but without the price tag). The video comes out to 2 megabytes a second at 640x480 30 fps, using 64-kbps 8-bit audio (it sounds mediocre, no better than my old Sony DSC-S75). Contrary to what dpreview has on its specs page, the video mode is really unlimited until memory card full, and there is NO tripod mount on the camera. The LCD works like a PDA's, with or ...

I was looking for an ultracompact that let me tweak things at the same time and had reasonable quality. The SL300R looked like the best deal around, and so far is living up to the expectations. First of all the form factor is the best of this camera. Its complitely square when closed, so it doesnt have any weird edges or bumps. Its the best thing I've seen around to slip it into your pocket and forget about it. This little baby is blazingly fast too. Startup time is like a second or two, and ...
