-Power-on button too small, and fragle.. almost require the use of finger nail to operate.
-Camera mode switch similarly filmsy and fragile
-Choosing image by flickering or fanning motion gimmicky and inpractical
-Touch screen requires more pressue than expected, sensitivity cannot be caliberated.
-Most options have limited range, either on or off.
-Exposure compensation up to +-2EV only.
-Grainy image visible in LCD screen at macro mode
-No manual mode, though a P mode is available
-Pointing operation at touch pad really requires long nail.. or the use of toggle strap, which is inconvenient
-Operation of four directional button is a nail operation
-Grainy image visible on computer screen for images taken at iso 250-800, L, f/2.8 zoomed at 50% viewing size.
-Weak battery means shorter shooting time.
-A little bit pricy bordering on low end of prosumer models..
