"High quality, good price, FAST shutter"5.0 starson by taishob
Pros: Beautiful pictures with no fuss; fast startup time, FAST shutter response, so you don't miss facial expressions or motion, waiting for the automation to determine what's the best ISO and F setting. HDVideo! Takes SD cards, not just Sony's MS!
Cons: What's not to like? Bought an Olympus S-360 at Christmas, way too slow for action, so I bought this one to keep from missing my kids' smiles.
Summary: The camera shoots beautifully in all light conditions. Goes up to 14MP, which is overkill for me, so I set it down to 10. (Technically, 5MP is good enough for 4x6 prints.) The thing that impressed me the most was the 0.4 second shot response. If you shoot things that move, this camera is the best in this price range. The HD video is also surprisingly beautiful.The Olympus model I compared to was FE-360, not S-360
