This is my first digital camera, and I've made the right choice. The camera is very solid, with enough specs for a novice like me. The quality of the pics is great, and you don't have to worry about almost anything, 'cause this machine do the service. Just turn it on and take pictures. Problems: - not a great optical zoom, but is not bad at all - Need an "ok" button, instead of pushing the center of the D pad, to confirm menus.

I got it from goodguys.com for $254.(Plus I got a free Dazzle USB reader/writer, but the promotion is over.) The color is quite natual. Small to fit my poket. The picture is as good as the other 2.0 camera. At this price, it is as good as I can expect. I got 200 pictures out of one set of batteries which is not bad at all.

The construction is very cheap and the buttons feel like they probably won't last very long if used for more than an occassional point and shoot. I wanted to stay within a budget when I purchased this camera. I'm definitely returning it and giving up some of the features to get what I really bought a camera for....good pictures! Problems: Battery life is ...
