Beware of a fundamental flaw with this camera! For some reason, the lens opens up when the camera is powered on for the purpose of downloading pictures to your PC. Of course, this would be when the camera is most vulnerable to a drop (while it is connected to a cord). Sure enough, my 4 year old son walked by during my first download, caught the cable, and down went the camera. This was not a hard fall - I didn't even give it any thought until I encountered the Lens Error message when I ...

i'm not reviewing this camera because i haven't shot with it, but obviously the problem people are having with bluish casts is due to the white balance not being set to Auto by default. so i'd just ask future reviewers who are having problems with color casts to change the white balance to Auto and take a few more shots before posting a review. thanks! Problems: (see above)

I am very disappionted by this camera. All pictures have strange colors. The corners of sky at wide angle are purple and at tele the image is always blurred. I used a Canon S1 before and that was an excellent camera. Now I wanted to upgrade and I really regret it!

The camera is solid but I'd prefer it to be all metal like it's competitors. The quality is excellent. i can use it to take some quick un-important simple pictures, quick vacation pictures, or really go for the artistic type and use the powerful manual overrides this camera has such as focus, exposure EV, shutter speed, color balance, contract, sharpness, and the best shot feature where it takes 5 pictures instantly and saves the best one. i miss not having a bulb exposure but it does open ...

I was really excited about this camera, and got it as soon as it was available. I was esp. excited about the 8.3x zoom, which was the main reason I was buying it. My current cam is a Canon S45 which I love. Anyway, I got the camera and took side by side test pictures with the S45. Unfortunately, all the pictures the 4800 took were very cool and bluish. In fact, when taking full zoom pictures of art on a wood background, the wood and art took on such a cast you could not determine their ...
