"Panorama was fun, but overall poor quality."1.5 starson by Gossamer_B
Pros: Good Panorama
Cons: Difficult to use. Most pictures mediocre. Action shots were impossible. Not even remotely rugged.
Summary: I used it for about 3 months then gave up trying to take decent pictures. I shoot SLR's normally, so i know what I want to do but trying to pull a decent action shot out of this was very frustrating..I let my daughter use it for about 8 months, then the zoom quit working. Now the lens doesn't seem to want to initialize. It keeps extending then retracting, then says turn power off then on. Next time, I'll put a little more money into a point and shoot, or stick with my SLR's. my advice with this one, If you like the panorama mode..its great, when not used for such, keep it in a hermetically sealed velvet lined box. Then, maybe, it'll last for a while.
