After one or two uses in a pool, the little icons on the settings dial disappeared, but I use the camera so much that I can easily find whatever settings I am after.

I take this with me a lot and am always glad. I like to shut the flash off because I prefer more natural lighting (there is a "Available Light" setting which works well, although makes some shots grainy). I have also had a lot of fun with the panorama options. I have seen iPhones do a little better job with this lately, but I don't have one of those, so...
I have had this for a couple of years. I bought an extra battery from Microcenter and keep it charged and ready-to-go. One battery charge lasts a good amount of time anyway, but I like never having to worry when I'm out. In the couple of years I have used this, I have gone through one set of two batteries in this fashion, but I found them cheap enough that I had no problems replacing them.
I haven't played around with different image qualities. I am satisfied with whatever "normal" is because I use this mostly for sharing with my friends, but I have captured plenty of stunning shots which get oohs and ahhs from them.
I have dropped this a few times with no problems. It would be nice if the computer USB adapter were of a more common connector type. Because it isn't, I have to really be sure to keep track of the chord that came with the camera. If I lost it, however, it is easy to pop out the memory card and get the pixs to the computer in a different way.
