I owned or won the M407 and this R607. I do home inspections so I need a camera with fast shutter speed and great lighting abilites. This camera is great even in those dark and gloomy days. The adabtive lighting effects are great and brighten those dark photos.This is a great camera and for $240 Canadian yes Canadian at Staples at 4.1 megapixel. its easy to point and shoot and for more creative shooting a great camera. Problems: The batteries a lithium and have to be custom ordered.
