I have purchased this little camera three years ago (how time flies) and I have to say that for the price, this is perhaps the best point-and-shoot that I had hoped for. After three years of constant (ab)use, the black paint is now chipped on all the corners of the camera and the shutter occasionally gets stuck after turning it off... but it still works like a charm. The "Auto" mode takes very decent quality photos most of the time, and where it comes up short the "Advanced" photo features more than make up for it - for example, if you need to snap anything fast-moving (concerts, sports, windy weather) simply setting it to the "Pets and Kids" mode will take care of it for you - that is the one I keep preset, to be able to switch to it with one flick of a dial. Night photos could be better, but the "Handheld Night Scene" mode is not bad for still images. The only thing I find awkward is the interface that lets you delete images (too many button presses required in my opinion) and the only addition I would really like is for it to be waterproof so that I no longer have to worry when taking it out at the beach. But, so far so good, I've used it at the beach for three summers and it still works! My next camera is definitely going to be whatever the next generation of this little guy is.
Pros: affordable, very durable, good quality photos, many advanced features
Cons: paint chips easily, long term battery life could be better, videos take a wile to save
