PRO - Weight, quality (camera & images), functions CON - Video in low light, battery consumption After working with this camera for nearly a year, I'm still amazed at what images I can capture when I think about what I'm shooting. Taking a few seconds to think about the image and adjusting the settings appropriately produces outstanding images, suitable for framing. The seven different shot settings are great when I want to take quick shots, but the ability to go manual, aperature or shutter override, makes it feel like more than a point-n-shoot. Using the 2.5" LCD screen is great; but it really sucks the batteries dry. Investing in some rechargable Energizers is a must. Shooting video rocks, unless you are in low light.
