Nice little camera, easy to use, full featured. Includes media, pouch, 110-240v charger, many features and accessories you wouldnt expect for a $180 camera. Problems: Image quality is terrible for any indoor photography. Blurred, grainy from excess ISO noise, useless for even 4x6 prints or web viewing. CA poor at edges. See similar comments for the M30.
