It's a p&s with excellent image quality, crazy good zoom to 40X optical, easy menu, and takes AA batteries. It's a bit bulky, but will deliver the goods big time. $152. on groupon or $191. at Amazon. IQ gets a 4.5/5 rating which is almost unheard of on a sub $250. p&s camera

From mine below, view full size to see better detail.

I'm not familiar at all with this camera, but the images certainly look nice. How does it perform in low light?

Hi Andy, I'm guessing it performs like most other small sensor cams in low light. I have not shot it in a dimly lit restaurant, indoor concert, etc., but this is larger sensor territory generally speaking. Search Flickr as there are probably images there to give you a better idea.
