In the two weeks I've used this product I have fallen in love. To my great surprise it was touch screen. I loved that simply because I am a Treo 750 owner. The pictures I took of a little boy fishing were fantastic because the camera mode caught the shimmers off of the water surrounding him. The nature shots were clear and clean up close and far away. Battery life was impressive. I shot pictures and video all day without once having to change the battery. The weight of the cam is barely noticeable. And what a joy to not have to fumble with a cassette or disc. Though I do wish the LCD was a little larger. But when all the other features are taken into account; the 30GB memory, the hard disk drive , the memory card slot I can live with it. I would definitely suggest this product to a friend.
