"2. it feels good in the hand: solid, with some weight to it (it's a bit small for myself, but should be great for my teen god-daughter)3. controls are logically placed, easy to reach and to understand (I didn't get as far as the instruction manual) and the digital display is concise, intelligible and is huge for such a small camera4."
