Pros Very compact and light, and the view screen is very large. Stills and videos come out perfectly clear and no matter what you take, it's easy to upload to your computer. I must have a newer version because my zoom is 16x clear! Great battery life.
Cons Not water-proof! I would love to take this snorkeling!
Summary I always have this camera with me no matter where I go. It's basically a point-and-shoot camera so taking pics is a no-brainer. If you point the camera to what you want to take the picture of, you will have a clear shot even if driving (without having to take your eyes off the road, of course). Fits in your pocket and is always ready.
The battery has a long life and is rechargeable.
