Pros clear active scene pictures
easy to use
extremely fast for rapid picture taking, w/o sacrificing quality
Cons doesn't have the impact resistance of my last camera, so i am careful to protect it more
Summary my past camera was too slow to focus, even on sport mode, when trying to capture priceless moments of my children. this camera is quick and 9 times out of 10, crystal clear. had great luck with it both indoors and out, and use the video often as well. it's very easy to use, and compact. out performs any other point and shoot i've had by far.
not had issues with battery life, although it is only a few months old. lasts much longer than other cameras i've previously owned.
overall, great camera, especially for things constantly in motion.
