Its a good camera with a few limitations. It has quite the limit on zoom and it takes way too long between shots. Otherwise it works for me.

Excellent camera. Loads of space for pics and brilliant for speed as the CD can just be put straight into the pc. A little heavy though to carry around, not really compact like some. Generally a good camera.

This is a wonderful camera. The Zeiss lens gives a beautifully crisp, detailed photo. It has the feel of an SLR camera, so it is an easier transition from film than most cameras are. It also records the photos on a mini-cd which, for someone just entering the digital arena, is comforting. I was also able to purchase additional lenses and filters for this camera, which I liked a lot. The LCD display is large, which makes things much easier, and, in bright light, there is a cover for it that allows you to look through an eyepiece.

This camera takes great pictures. I don't like the fact that it doesn't have an optical viewfinder and is very sensitive about taking pictures too fast. I have lost a lot of images this way.

I love this camera because it's very versatile and easy to use. However I do not like the fact it only has a 4x digital zoom.

It's wonderful. As soon as I'm done shooting the pictures are immdeiately burned to small CD's that are stored in the camera. Making it very easy to go from camera to computer.
