Got a refurb from Woot for $149 and so far am very happy versus my Lumix DMC-TZ7 which was my prior travel zoom. Only minor annoyance is that when in auto mode, camera doesn't remember flash setting. Like many, I prefer to almost never use the flash. Solution is to run the camera in any other mode (I often use P mode no matter what camera I'm using) in which it will remember the flash setting. Wi-Fi is nice, app supports both camera control and downloading photos from camera, sadly, only seems to be available for smart devices (iOS, Android) and not PC or Mac.
