Focus

Focus:
"* Good build quality with excellent LCD screen* Good low-light focus lamp* Potential to take some very good picturesNegatives:* Very unreliable focus and sometimes unreliable white balance* Terrible printed user manual (but the online manual is very good)* No standard cable connections on camera for USB* No digital video out from the camera* Some of the in-camera features just did not work reliably."
_
"It may even be that the camera defaults to focus a few feet away when its autofocus algorithm fails."
_
"It made a loud clicking noise, clearly something wrong, but would rarely focus correctly."
_
"My grand children love it when I take their picture and on my computer make it so large only their teeth or eyes are on the screen in perfect focus."

"Have not had the problem described with blurry pics out of focus, just be steady and press down half way first before shooting and you'll be fine."

"Low light performance seems really good, it is able to focus and take good shots."

"The only time there was reliable focus was when the subject was relatively close to the camera (a couple yards or less away) and cooperative."

Image

Image:
"It would continually give me an error Busy, Please Wait after shooting a photo, instead of flashing the photo on the screen for review."
_
"This a great point and shoot, but I was very disappointed in photo quality in low light, and ESP."
_
"But I'd have to say the biggest problem I had with this camera is that it would crop images automatically at the top so even if you had a subject in frame you'd lose the top bit of the image almost always messing up your shot."
_
"It resulted way more expensive than this one and doesn't have many features, like video editing, direct video button, zoom during video recording... it's slow, big, shows lines and bubbles in the pics, and the sound recorded is crappy."
_
"Perhaps it is operator error or lack of image stabilization."
_
"Sharp image, great design but the better of all is it compact body"
_
"Takes GREAT pics and easy to operate."
_
"It would continually give me an error Busy, Please Wait after shooting a photo, instead of flashing the photo on the screen for review."
_
"This a great point and shoot, but I was very disappointed in photo quality in low light, and ESP."
_
"If you are like me, and have the nice expensive camera to bring to weddings, and just want something tiny to throw in your pocket for partying that will take great pics and is cheap enough (I bought the green - which I lOVE for only 115! )"
