For a point and shot camera this one has served me very well. Snaped over 9000 images in just under 3 years. Even for a 2.0mp camera, it takes amazing photos. Many of mine i have blown up to 8x10 and they are still clear and noise free. I can't count how many times that camera fell out of the truck, or my pocket or off a table or what ever it has held up very well. Good amount of features on it. Only thing is I wish when doing video it would record sound.

Took great pictures while I used it, but since it is only a 2MP camera I quickly outgrew it.

Pros: compact, easy to use, small enough to fit in a pocket when going for a walk, energy efficient, short time to get ready to shoot pics or movies. Cons: expensive memory (memory stick), long time to shoot picture after picture with flash, had to service it because the LCD wasn't working well. Overall good for begginers or for people who don't want to think about the settings when taking pictures.

Great little point and shoot camera. Small optical zoom can cripple you a bit, but overall takes good pictures and very easy to use.
