"Wish I could get my wife to switch mine for hers...."4.5 starson by TMT904
Pros: Nice Formfactor, solid, excellent picture quality
Cons: Somewhat awkward Flash placement and power button
Summary: Overall, I just love this camera. It supports the SD type memory which is all I own so I already had plenty of memory. Although this is my wife's camera, I love taking pictures with it and have almost mothballed my Casio Exilim 7.2 I tried to get her to take mine and let me have this one but that was a no-go.
The picture quality even on enlargement is outstanding...vibrant colors with virtually no distortion. Taking pictures is quite easy with a dial on the right side to switch from manual, auto, video, or review. Don't expect to take a picture every second but it is acceptable for a point & shoot. Battery life is also good. We have charged it up once and it still hasn't hit 1/4 discharge yet....give or take 400 pics w/wo flash. It is a solid camera with a good feel. It fits well in my grip. All the hinges and battery compartments seem solid. I covered the screen with a protector as I do all my electronics with viewscreens. I've blown my photos up to 8x10 with ease.
The only con I could find with this camera that is truly noteable is the location of the flash. It requires some finess on finger position. My wife is constantly blocking the flash with her fingers. I hold my camera differently so it's not an issue but the flash is on the very top left edge of the unit which makes it very easy to block which will cast a shadow on flash photos only. In daylight, she has no issues.
If I could, I would have given this camera a 9.5/10 because nothing with the camera itself is really a major issue.... outstanding picture quality, excellent battery life (with all sounds still enabled)
Hope this helps,
