"Overall, an outstanding choice for a Point-and-Shoot"5.0 starson by ptrckgry
Pros: Easy to learn, easy to use. Takes great photos. Lots of presets (love the diorama) but you can go crazy on your own as well. AWESOME in low light situations.
Cons: Battery charges "in camera". You can buy the charger adapter separately, but it would have been nice to throw that in the package.
Summary: I'm not sure why the reviewer didn't like the photo quality...mine is wonderful. Not quite DSLR of course, but the best I've seen for this size/style of camera. CNET Asia speaks very highly of the photo quality, especially the RAW images. The DPreview website rates it higher than the Canon S95 and the Pansonic Lumix LX5 and gives it a Gold rating; I would concur with that rating (in my humble and unprofessional opinion) more than this one. Of course, the reviewer here at CNET does this for a living, so maybe it's me who's a bit off. I would simply recommend that if you are considering this camera, read some other reviews to get a better perspective. I couldn't be happier with my choice.
