I agree with Victor, blurred images or inacurate auto focus.
At the video reproduction zooming- lens noice is present. Regret for buying this model
after 7 years of using Olympus C740 UZ wich still today makes sharp pictures in every conditions!
Frankly speeking avoid Olympus SZ-11.

I bought a sz-11 from HSN at $199 + tax. The camera is everything good except picture quality. The picture lacks details. I really with it's not the case because I like everything else.

There is a built-in flash & retail is $279....but $199 thru HSN

The cons you list re no built-in flash & expensive $359.69 should be updated.
