“Pro: Stylish, compact, water and scratch resistant body, Large 2.5” LCD display is visible in low light (though see issues below), Very good performance, Tons of scene modes, Support for underwater cases, Nice in-camera guide/help system, Very good software bundle

Cons: Photos have soft, fuzzy details; noticeable corner softness; poor night shot performance, Redeye a problem; built-in redeye removal software didn’t help for me, No AF-assist lamp; so-so low light focusing, Digital image stabilization (aka high sensitivity mode) is no substitute for the real thing, Some manual controls would’ve been nice, Unimpressive continuous shooting and movie modes, No optical viewfinder, No USB 2.0 High Speed support, Can’t swap memory cards while camera is on a tripod, Not much built-in memory; full manual only on CD “
