Size, ease of use, effects, digital zoom, variety of picture modes, picture quality, features.
Slightly fiddly controls.
This is my first major digital camera and I was impressed by its size and quality. It has numerous effect, such as black and white and sepia tones and you can record short clips of film too. There IS digital zoom, which is up to 2X magnification. The camera is a doddle to use with a good menu system, which is controlled by a joystick device on the back. This can be slightly fiddly as can the shutter button (which is near the power button). Unlike Kodak cameras, you get a rechargin/transfer cradle as standard, which you can connect to your PC via USB. Battery life is excellent. Overall, a brilliant and small piece of kit. Well worth it!
