Size and resolution. Good on-camera controls. Faithful colour reproduction. Built-in exposure compensation. Timer shot. Rechargeable lithium polymer battery.
Picture button and power button are too close together. No through the lens framing. No zoom.
This is my run-around camera, intended to store documented evidence if somebody goes into the back of my car on a dark night with no witnesses. Having said that, it is highly functional, and takes more than average pictures in most conditions. You don't buy this camera to take professional pictures. However, for this price (or any price), this is the ONLY credit card sized camera I could find which has a built in LCD viewer AND 2 Megapixel resolution AND a rechargeable Lithium battery. Would have been nicer if it could zoom, but then it would have been more expensive and not credit card sized. You even have the option of an MP3 player with the M2 model. You have to decide when you buy the camera whether you want the MP3 player, as it is NOT possible to upgrade to it afterwards.
