One year and still the best... I bought my camera last year for christmas, and this is now 3 friend who bought the same with my advice. I still don't see any digital camera with so many good points (even the C50z seems to have poor features...) : - small. - AA batteries (so good while trekking !). - 16 seconds max shutter. - excellent noise reduction. - bright and clear screen. - very fast card access. - 35mm max angle (many start at 38mm). Problems: The only regrets are : - f8.0 max ...

A realistic view: Im not a pro but I believe my opinion is applicable to the majority of users that will buy this camera. I outline the main points... 1. Takes standard AA batteries, I find this to be a very big advantage. Dont listen to all the battery life horror stories. With standard alkalines, the battery life is bad however I have Duracell 1800 mAH and they have been excellent. Also they come in a 4 pack and you have a spare set of 2. I read all the reviews on the web about battery ...

Just puchased mine from UBID.com for $319. It is refurbished but I've bought more than 10 items from them in the past. Luv this camera. Just Love it. Nothing new here but the portability factor does matter. I was thinking about getting Nikon 5700, but who's gonna walk around w/ a camera like that. The loss of quality and extra features is worth it for me. No more missing precious moments. I would've love to see a feature that allows for resizing to allow more storage room. Since each image is ...

This camera is easy to use. Because of the minimal size and weight it's easy to take with you on several occassions. The output really astonished me, with the lowest resolution, you still can print fine, clear photo's. Problems: The first C40Zoom I bought broke down in 4 days. The lens wouldn't get in the camera when I closed the slide. The second one broke down in 8 days, the lens wouldn't come out any more when I opened the camera. I did everything according to the manual, so I couldn't ...

A small and excellent camera, really. If it were any smaller it wouldn't use standard batteries (which is a huge plus), any bigger I wouldn't keep it in my pocket. It is simple to use and the menu system is well thought-out. It has all the features I was looking for and picture quality is outstanding. Pictures are well balanced and saturated, and both very well detailed and smooth, giving excellent printouts straight out of the camera but also allowing for very high quality picture-editing ...

Revisited 21st December 2005: I have owned the camera since early March 2002. It has some important manual controls that the Stylus 800 lacks, which however is now my main snapshooter. The C-40ZOOM image quality is the same as that of the C-750UZ. I did numerous A3 enlargements for my first exhibition, and many more after. Many people were astounded that they were looking at digital photos on inkjet prints. Technically, I like that I can preset sharpness (I reduced it to avoid edge effects), ...

I've had the camera for a month now and I am very pleased! The size of this camera is absolutely great--I am not a professional photographer or anything of that nature, just your casual picture taker so for me being able to put it in a pocket is just fanstastic. I have not had the battery problems as described in this forum. I've taken 4 (~15 sec.) movies with sound, and have 83 pictures still left (I did buy an additional 128 meg card); I do have rechargeable Nimh batteries, though. One ...

Update on the D40 I've had the camera for about 5 months now. While I appreciate the image quality, I find the flash recharges agonzingly slow. Also the delay time between depressing the shutter button and the pic being taken is too slow. I lose all spontinaity with those aforementioned complaintes. Problems: Camera functions as advertised. My problems are already mentioned.

Who can help me?thank you so much!
