"This is well worth the money."4.0 starson by martyjos
Pros: Sharp Images. VR works well. Nice size to carry.
Cons: A little slow shot to shot.. LCD screen could be brighter
Summary: CNET rates this camera too low. For what it is, not being a DSLR and for the cost, you cannot go wrong. Images are very sharp, show a lot of detail, and you can print large images with little noise to ISO 400. Higher ISO are very usable for 4X6 and 5X7 prints. You can use this as a point and shoot camera or control most of what you need to for excellent pictures. I have found the metering to be spot on under all kinds of conditions Also,the flash is very good for a camera of this size. Following CNET's rating guidelines, it is definitely better than CNET's rating of 6.9 with 7 being (very good) and is a very high 8 (excellent) but not a 9 (spectacular.)
