    Just picked me up one at a discount store-- and got change back from the two
    C-notes I handed the cashier. That's a honey of a lightweight, stick it in
    your pocket, 4 megapixel, 3X optical zoom, runs on AA's, little point &
    shoot camera.

    I got it to supplement my "serious" digital cameras and so I don't mind the
    lack of manual settings-- though there are about 20 pre-programmed modes for
    stock shooting situations (fast shutter, long depth of field, slow shutter,

    Definitely recommended!

    Sam's Club, Atlanta; I also saw it at Sam's in Akron last week at about the
    same price.

    It is very good for 6x4 prints, but has a lot of processing artifacts
    any larger. I bought one for my wife. It is fun to use and very
    immediate. Almost instant startup. rechargeables last quite a long time.
    Quite a bit of barrel distortion and aberation, not really worse than
    other similar cameras. There is a new one with a bigger screen called
    the QV41.

    It tends to overexpose with flash, only has non flash exposure

    Actually-- it has flash compensation (REC/Menu/Flash
    Intensity/Weak-Normal-Strong). Mine takes 2304 x 1712 pixels which I can
    easily enlarge to 8x10 or 11x14 (not that you'd do that with pix from a
    camera like this one). And while there may be some barrel distortion and
    aberration, you really need to look hard to see it. Unless you're shooting a
    tall building, I wouldn't worry about the former and as for the latter,
    unless you're shooting test color patches, it's just not a problem.

    Picky, picky, picky; bitch, bitch, bitch. It's a $200 camera for Pete's

    As far as I can see the flash output adjustment does nothing.
    As you say it is a $200 camera and I was being objective about it.
    I don't believe that the output stands up to the size you claim.
    For a cheap point and shoot camera to make 6x4 prints, it is terrific.
    That is why I bought it.
