"Rugged uit with some limitations"3.0 starson by Antonolbo
Pros: Take anywhere portability
Cons: Some odd restrictions in some settings
Summary: I like the worry free portability. I don't have to worry about the camera getting wet if I'm out in the rain, or the ocean for that matter. Some of the odd things are the severely limited time of 10 second length of a high quality (640x480) 30 frame per second video clip... that's disappointing... but the 15 frame per second clip is as much as your battery/card can handle. The camera gets quite warm after a few minutes, but still keeps recording. There are many photo setting options, but for some reason, in the "program" mode, the file size is limited to 5 Mpixel or less. (Why did I buy a 10 Mpixel camera??) Also you may change the settings in one mode, and then switch to another mode, but the settings for each mode have to be set individually. Just because you changed them in one mode, the camera only changes the particular settings for that mode. Change to a different mode, and you have to change the settings again. You have to watch carefully that the settings are the ones you want.
Low light situations, even if it's not that dark out, the camera picks 1600 asa speed equivalent, and the pictures can be quite grainy looking. Quite a bit more than I would have expected. The flash also isn't as consistant as I would like. Over exposed more in several shots of similar sitations.
I'm not as impressed with the camera as I thought I might be, but I bought it for a compact travel camera so I don't have to lug extra bulky camera gear around, and that's what it is.
