Good camera specially in well lit situations,suffers from low light condition, found it slow to record in low light, action photos blurry.

One of the first pocket size digitals that came out, I've had it for years and caught some good shots with it. I mainly wanted it so I wouldn't miss shots of kids as they grow. But it can't hold a candle to the digital SLRs that I shoot now. But for a point and shoot, I'd recommend it.
