A surprisingly good camera

I had a brand new housing for this camera which popped out of our store room and I bought a 2nd hand one on eBay, since they have long been discontinued.

This camera really has a very sharp lens and it is my favorite walk-about. Image quality is much better than any of my much higher MP consumer cameras. It is easy to use and it always deliver good results.

The whole family fell in love with it and they are using it more than I am now and I got myself another one to keep the peace.

They go dirt-cheap on eBay - do yourself a favor and get one!


None. Battery life on the 1st one is not that good. Strangely enough, the 2nd one goes much further on a fully charged battery. It's flash recycle times are also much faster. We interchange batteries, so it is not battery related.
