maybe now on the paper its poor , but i realy love this camera , great pictures - very good video but only 480  , easy to carry - for a point and shoot camera - realy good.

I love this camera!!!!!!!! It's my baby, and I take it everywhere. It takes fantastic pictures, is fun to play with, has SO many cool in-camera features, like Colour Accent and Fireworks modes, takes excellent videos and again has fun features for videos. It's easy to use, quick to start up and is definitely better than any of my friends' point-and-shoot camera's, even if they are higher Megapixels!
