"So long that I don't get good pics of my daughter cause she's waited too long."
_
"Somehow though the quality of the pic on the display is not as nice as on my P2 - pics seem dark and I'm using the automatic settings."
_
"It was a challenge to take an indoor photo without flash at 1600 ASA with a decent shutter speed but it can be done."
_
"Picture quality was absolutely terrible and when I would zoom to take a closer photo it became grainy."
_
"I'm not an expert in terms of color reproduction, or other details aspects of the final photo, but I don't see much to complain about in terms of photo quality."
_
"With 12 megapixels the camera captures a wonderful image."
_
"Images are very good and can be printed on 17 inch paper so I am extremely pleased with this camera."
_
"It was a challenge to take an indoor photo without flash at 1600 ASA with a decent shutter speed but it can be done."

_
"To start it up, and snap a good quality photo in auto mode, might take 3 seconds or so."

Quality

Quality:
"Somehow though the quality of the pic on the display is not as nice as on my P2 - pics seem dark and I'm using the automatic settings."
_
"Additionally, start-up is surprisingly slow, auto-focus is only quick in really bright light and I've had a few problems transferring files from the camera to my computer (issues with both speed and glitches).On the bright side, the video quality, although limited by the poor sensor quality is not half-bad."

_
"I'm not an expert in terms of color reproduction, or other details aspects of the final photo, but I don't see much to complain about in terms of photo quality."
_
"Overall, I got what I asked for, in some regard though was a bit disappointed at the picture quality and was forced to clip a star from it."
_
"This was a great camera for my trip since the charge lasted a very long time and it took good quality pictures."
_
"I have had it for over a year and the picture quality is just amazing."
_
"I'm happy with the camera's portability and quality, but would like it to take pictures in faster intervals (about 1-2 seconds between shots)."
_
"Positive points - 1) nice form factor, light and small, 2) relatively quick to startup (less than 2 sec) to shoot if in automatic mode, reasonable quality (see gallery of unretouched photos at the [...] equipment selection and then the here hot word under point and shoot discriminators)."
_
"My goals when buying this camera were pretty straightforward.1) Good picture quality.2) Very portable."

Speed

Speed:
"The camera is simple to use, but the one negative thing I have found is that the camera is slow to detect when you're taking a close-up shot and sometimes won't focus properly unless you manually put it in close-up mode."
_
"I have a very fast child and all the cameras I have used until now were too slow and I was missing shots."
_
"Additionally, start-up is surprisingly slow, auto-focus is only quick in really bright light and I've had a few problems transferring files from the camera to my computer (issues with both speed and glitches).On the bright side, the video quality, although limited by the poor sensor quality is not half-bad."
_
"I admit that it's quite possible that I'm jaded and spoiled after having shot with a D200 and D700 for years, but the picture quality of this camera is incredibly dismal, the build quality is so-so, and the speed of operation is also incredibly disappointing."
_
"It really does take lightning fast photos, which was the worst part of our old Nikon."
_
"In the tests I did there is a difference among the point and shoots and I think this one is among the best for speed."
_
"The zoom is only 5X and the speed at which it zooms causes you to lose potentially great pictures because you often shoot tiny specks in a distance for any photo that involves action."
_
"It was a challenge to take an indoor photo without flash at 1600 ASA with a decent shutter speed but it can be done."
_
"I was able to purchase a high speed SD card for very cheap online (newegg), and expand my storage up to 8GB."
_
"Extremely fast for a point and shoot camera with great picture quality it's like a pocket D-SLR."
