PROS: Very good image quality, Compact, well put together body (for the most part)
Optical image stabilization, Built-in 802.11b/g for wireless photo transfer (though see issues below), Large, high resolution LCD display; screen is visible in low light, Limited manual controls
Tons of scene modes, In-camera help system, Handy D-Lighting and Best Shot Selector features, Nice movie mode (though note the bug below), Time-lapse photo and movie modes
CONS: Images a bit soft for my taste, Redeye, Sound cuts out prematurely in movie mode, Poor low light focusing despite having an AF-assist lamp, No optical viewfinder, Can’t e-mail or upload files wirelessly; camera can’t be controller wirelessly, Really could’ve used a shutter priority mode, Not much built-in memory, No USB 2.0 High Speed support, Plastic tripod mount, flimsy cover over battery/memory card compartment “
