Nice Camera

on 8/13/2008

Was looking for a smaller camera that would still take quality pics and this seems to fit the need. Lots of nice features that are easy to use, navigating is easy, just take some time to get familiar w/it. Only thing I notice is some night shots will get a glare from a nearby light source, but it's probably something I just need to adjust. The LCD screen is huge. Battery life seems pretty good also. Overall I'm very happy with this camera and the quality of pictures.
