_
"Even when it works, video quality is horrible and still photos have way too much noise reduction."

_
"Excellent camera, nice and compact, 14 MP, great quality on all the pictures, not blur at all, nice zoom, Nice built-in sharing options, great rechargeable battery life, for the price and features i would say it's one of the best point and shoot cameras on the market, just remember that it only uses micro-SD cards."

Size

Size:

_
"The buttons are ridiculously tiny and if you have arthritis or joint problems please don't pick this camera because it is only for the small, nimble-fingered type."
_
"Nice camera but more complicated than earlier models, buttons are small and easily confused and the Easy Share feature doesn't seem to work well (at all) - all that said, it can take great photos - so if great photos are what you're after, and a great small size is what you are looking for, it is a good camera"
_
"The pictures are clear and it is a nice size for traveling."
_
"It is so easy to use and as a professional photograper I love the compact size, One of my other cameras cost over $5,ooo."
_

_
