Small and perfectly formed. If you want a small camera that is portable and easy on batteries than look no further ... I've had this camera for a number of years now and it's still working perfectly well ... recharagable AAA batteries are cheap and i can fit hunderds of images on a single MS, with one charge. In one setting i took close to 400 images in 5 hours. Didn't fail once. Problems: Focus isn't always 100% and it's only a 2mb camera. But you know it's going to have problems.

To echo everyone else: perfect for what it is. Owned for 1.5 years, taken a couple thousand shots, and am very pleased with it; it fits in my pocket and I forget it's there unless I see something worth shooting. Image quality is as can be expected for such a small lens - you will not win any awards, but you will capture far more with this than you would with anything bulkier. Construction is excellent. This camera has survived more drops than it should have. My only beef is the useless ...

The image quality is much poorer than expected. Lots of noise in anything other than perfect lighting and being perfectly still (sometimes even so). That seems to be the only downside to this camera. I have taken several thousand shots with it. It goes everywhere. I have several cameras that are much better but I just do not feel like lugging around. I recently took a trip to London and Amsterdam. My 128MB memory stick maxed out at 312 shots at 2mega-pixels shots. I used 2 sets of AAA NIMH ...

I think people don't know how to rate a camera. This is a 2 MPixel camera, you can't compare it with 3, 4, 5... MP! I have this camera for some 5 months, and I can tell you something, YOU CAN TAKE IT EVERYWHERE YOU WANT. Here is the goods: 1. THE SIZE! You will not fell any extra weight. It will not bother you anyway. 2. The batery life is average. If you don't use flash at all, than you can play as you want. 3. The image quality is GREAT for a camera this size 4. You have some Auto Modes ...

Perfect for carrying around in my pocket whenever i'm doing something where i wouldn't want to lug around a bag to carry my sony P8. Great pictures for its size (fine for printing up to 5"x8") and reasonable battery life assuming you don't use the flash. Even just a 64MB card gives me plenty of capacity. And cheap enough so that i won't cry too much if i loose it on a night out Problems: A few more user adjustable setting would be handy Some way of extending battery life when using the flash lots

Another camera I wanted every reason in the world and then some to keep. Unfortunately everything was good , or better when it came to features, such as affordability and ease of use , and construction , but the most important feature , image quality was a big disappointment. I was in shock after reading Steves review and comparing my shots to other peoples photos, about how poorly my camera faired in image quality. The shots I attained had dull color and were lifeless and resolution was ...

I have had this little camera for nearly six months and taken several hundred pictures. The image quality is very good in good outdoor light, but marginal indoors. It is not a good all-around camera, but handy for those occasions when you don't want to be burdened down with larger equipment. Problems: The camera does not have a viewfinder, which means that you are totally dependent on the small LCD screen. In bright sunlight, it is almost impossible to compose a picture and check focus ...

I've carried the little U30 in my pants pocket for a couple of months. It's great to have a camera at hand all the time and I've taken several hundred shots. The image quality is excellent especially in bright natural light or fairly close up with flash. Great color. 2 megapixels is actually quite a lot. This is the 1st pic out of the camera. Downsized. www.execpc.com/~katfisch/kathimaudetomgus.jpg Problems: The sliding door can open a little in my pocket and the lens then gets dusty. ...
