I have a crush on the plum Version of this camera. But it don`t have a 180° flip out screen, only upward and downward tiltable one; dealbreaker. 4 AA batteries is not a plus either, but don`t matter that much. Love the chunkyness and that it is said to be easy in use and great zoom. Real shame about the screen, can`t see any reason why the didn`t make it fully flipable; i would pay a bit more for that, no problem. For me they could have skipped the video part instead.
