Image

Image:
"With or without flash, the images were not substantially superior than those taken with my older Olympus."
_
"I read the reviews, and I still was optimistic about this camera, other people said that it doesn't take good pics, and I just figured I get the 4mp, a big memory card, and just shoot with the highest resolution."
_
"But when I had the right photo type selected the pictures looked great...even at 1600 resolution."
_
"If your looking for a small, take it anywhere camara, with good photo quality and long battery life this is the camara for you."
_
"So if you are a PRO don't mind getting this one but if you are a casual snapshooter who can trade a not-so-great image quality for economy, ease of use and small size this is a very good option for you."
_
"I like the option on it to easily transfer images to my computer by pushing a single button."
_
"If you are looking for a small camera with a decent photo this one may be a good call, however, the 5 MP version is not that much more money and may be a more bang for your buck! "

Photo

Photo:
"I had an older 2 MP sony and the thing took forever to take a picture and I missed some really good photos because of the shutter delay."
_
")Negatives:- quite fragile (broke one, fortunately had a replacement warranty and got another one for free)- photos in low light conditions are unacceptable - lots of noise- metal enclosure is very thin and delicate (Almond Joy's almond can easily dent it and damage the camera)- quite expensive - for the same price you can get a better camera from a better producer- buttons too small to use when in ski glovesOverall opinion - unless you get a great deal on this camera, better check offers from Nikon, Sony and Canon."
_
"Despite these attempts I continue to get grainy photos."
_
"+ Long baterry life+ small size+ big lcd- Problems with colors (white balance) in auto setting- if you taking pix with AUTO , don't expect good, sharp or natural photo- to many functions really complicated"
_
"I had an older 2 MP sony and the thing took forever to take a picture and I missed some really good photos because of the shutter delay."
_
"I saw this on Amazon and more then happy to buy it and start getting some great sunset photos again."
_
"This camera takes the best sunset photos and two of my photos from this camera have made the covers of magazines."
_
"Positives:- good photos in good light conditions- quite small- nice, large display- quick start time- superb battery- lots of predefined settings, easy to use- uses cheap SD cards- build-in 9 MB of memory = 8 extra photos when you are out of space- good quality movies with sound - with 1 GB SD card ($50) you can forget about a separate video cam."

Size

Size:
"Be wary of any of these small cameras as they say they have a 1 year warranty but most of the complaints I've read online deal with this same issue (and none are covered)."
_
"I recognize that I won't be able to get the quality of an SLR in such a small package, but my expectations were greater than this little camera was able to satisfy."
_
"+ Long baterry life+ small size+ big lcd- Problems with colors (white balance) in auto setting- if you taking pix with AUTO , don't expect good, sharp or natural photo- to many functions really complicated"
_
"Since almost all small digicams have problems with red eye, I assumed that would be the case, but so far, no red whatsoever - and I wasn't using the red eye reduction feature either!"
_
"I love the quality and the awesome size."
_
"If your looking for a small, take it anywhere camara, with good photo quality and long battery life this is the camara for you."
_
"The most impressive thing about the camera (besides the size) is the quick startup and shuter time."
_
"The size is great for putting it in your pocket and going out or to a baseball game (like I did)."
_
">:< Don't get me wrong, I love the size and I like all the functions on this camera, but I would gladly give those things up for better pictures."

Video

Video:
"I was very surprised to find, in situations where I had taken still shots and then video clips, that the videos were very nice and the stills were terrible."
_
"First of all, I would like to correct the reviewer before me , yes there is a video mode in the US version (He she probably confused it with the older EX-Z4U)."
_
"The video is not the greatest 15 fps (compared to the Sony T1's 30 fps), but I didn't buy a digicam for the video mode."
_
"Is shoots great movies(for a digital camara) and it can also has a recording voice feature."
_
"The additional feature of the video with sound is really cool, and the Best Shot can be really helpful (baring you understand each mode and when to use them well).I would MOST HIGHLY recommend this camera to everyone."
_
"The battery just goes and goes and goes.5.Video: the video mode have a great resolution, it's fast and is unlimited."
_
"Positives:- good photos in good light conditions- quite small- nice, large display- quick start time- superb battery- lots of predefined settings, easy to use- uses cheap SD cards- build-in 9 MB of memory = 8 extra photos when you are out of space- good quality movies with sound - with 1 GB SD card ($50) you can forget about a separate video cam."
