nice compact and smart looking digital camera with good images.
takes a long time to initalize itself before any pictures can be taken and if the flash is needed then its even longer and what has put me off the most is twice now i have taken it on holiday with me..1st time in june when after a week of photographs it tells me i have "NO IMAGES".
but more recently having spent all the year saving up for a family holiday to disney world (usa)i was there for 2 weeks and on the last day i get a message "CARD ERROR"..for no apparent reason as i had taken about 170 photo's prior to this ..and i am now unable to process this card without formatting it as far as i can tell?
seems to be an on-going problem with card errors and if like me you cherish your photo's then i would think hard before purchasing this digital camera, other than that i have no other bad points except the speed that it operates at but that goes back to the saying "you get what you paid for" but to lose all your cherished holiday photo's is totally unacceptable.
