One optional item that is a MUST is to upgrade to a 128 or 256 memory card...the little one it comes with only holds about 16 pictures, and little or no videos. The bigger cards can hold many many more, we usually end up with 70-80some pictures and 7-8 short videos on one card. ( I ended up buying one 128 and one 256)
Things we like: been dropped a couple times, splashed with minor amounts of water, and taken to the beach, and still works PERFECT!! Batteries tend to last a reasonable amount of time but you MUST use RECHARGEABLES!!! Regular AA batteries last maybe an hour or two, rechargeables last for days of regular use. Lightweight, nice size, (can fit in your pocket most times) controls are very easy to figure out and use!
Things we don't like: sometimes in low light the flash causes an extreme delay (you have to hold the button down part way to focus then push all the way to snap the shot) annoying but not too bad if you have patient subjects. Videos can NOT be shot in low light or you won't be able to see much of anything at all. No ZOOM options in the camera itself while taking photo (can be done later on the computer though)
All in all, a very nice camera for the money, we've been very happy with it!! THe only thing I would replace it with if I had the money is a "professional" grade digital with interchangeable lenses!
If you need a camera to see your pictures directly from the camera to your TV, or need lots of zoom power, this is not the camera you need and instead you need to paid about 150 dollars more for these two combine feasures. Can't complaint for this camera because is really a great deal.
However, where this camera really shines is as the smallest 640x480 30 fps digital video camera out there. Even though you'll need a 1GB Memory Stick Pro card to record 12 minutes of video at the highest setting, it still works out cheaper than buying the closest tapeless digital video competitor from less known and less reliable brands like Mustek. And the quality is definitely better than most of the old VHS camcorders out there that you could pick up for the same price as this camera and a 1GB card. And there's the ability to edit and cut video right on the camera. Which means that you can save memory space by doing a quick edit after your shot.
So if you need a video camera that you know you'll always have with you, and you don't mind doing frequent transfers to your PC, and need a camera that doesn't scream "I am now filming you with my camcorder" to your subject, this might be a good bet.
