"Great camera for the novice like myself."4.0 starson by robbinh00d
Pros: Good image quality. Lens pops out and goes back in REALLY fast which is what I wanted. Video quality is awesome at 30fps. Can use a 4gb SD card which fits right in your laptop. Menus are relatively user friendly. Slips in your pocket perfectly.
Cons: Autofocus can take a second or two to get there. Doesnt really bother me as I'm a total novice. I just wanted a camera small enough to put in my pocket. I dont like the integrated battery thingie. I'd rather be able to use rechargeable AA batts.
Summary: I know NOTHING about photography, nor do I care. I was able to steal this for about $130 so I got it because I was in desperate need of a digicam. The video quality is awesome on this thing. Saves as .avi files so you can compress any way ya like afterwards. Image quality is good. Only thing is, the model right after this one utilizes the SDHC cards. That way you can use the larger SD cards like 32gb, or 64gb...plenty of space for the longest home videos.
