This is my first digital camera. My buddy let me use his Optio for about 2 weeks before I talked myself into getting one myself. I considered purchasing the Canon S230, but I was sold by +1x more Optical Zoom along w/ a new “Sliding Lens” system. I also found that most stores couldn't keep the Optio S on the shelf long enough to accumulate dust. I purchased an extra 256MB of SD memory which appears to be more than enough storage. All my pictures/videos are taken at the highest resolution. ...View review in forums Leave a comment on this review
