We use this camera for the quick shooting. It is small and fits in easily in a pocket. We use this camara for outdoor sports (hiking, climbing, swimming). This camera you can take with you when having a wildwater rafting tour! The image quality isn't that good, but we have a Canon S5 to make the nicer pictures.

Shutter lag, focus delay/lag, image quality and noise are even a lot poorer than my S30 five years ago, my ...
