Problems: Non yet

I love this camera. It has plenty of good features and with the software provided, there is a limitless amount of things to be done with it. People who complained about only getting 6 images on a disk (floppy) should try taking pictures at the lower resolution (which still looks great!) And floppy disks are cheap cheap cheap!!
