"Excllent value, Fine Picture Quality, Great Feature Set."4.5 starson by King of Real Estate
Pros: Price, Image Qaulity, Feature Set, Form Factor
Cons: It's not made in America, cursory printed documentation (Detailed docs on CDROM).
Summary: Easy to use, Excellent Optics, Starts quick, No shutterlag, and Outstanding 30FPS video, Simple controls. If your looking for th most bang for your buck I doubt you'll find a better camera for the money. The image procssing software is incrediably refined. The pictures I taken with this camers have exceded my expectations with no noise or artifacts. I belive this camera benefits from it's more expensive siblings. The Imagae Stabilization, Scene and other software features are welcome hand-me-downs from the cameras big brothers. It looks well made, but if it only last a year I will feel like I got more than my moneys worth.
